Ready to sell your home? If you’ve determined that selling is a wise financial decision, and you’ve spoken with a Realtor about a time frame, you’re well on your way. But are you truly ready to put the sign in your front yard?
(By the way, if you’re searching for a Realtor in Harrisonburg/Rockingham, give us a shout. We’d love the opportunity to work with you!)
There is a lot that goes into putting a house up for sale. Several tasks have to be completed before the official list date, and we’ve made this process much easier. We’ve worked with hundreds and hundreds of home sellers over the years. Each seller wants to make a good first impression, and each seller wants to make top dollar.
Our best advice is to follow this printable checklist of tasks to complete before putting your home on the market [click the image below or download it here].
Following this list will position your home above and way beyond all the other listings in the Harrisonburg and Rockingham County real estate market, especially if you also complete the bonus tasks at the end of the checklist. Buyers will notice and appreciate all that you’ve done to the home, and it will stand out among the competing homes for sale.
In order to break this down into manageable pieces, we categorized these tasks into helpful groups:
- Documents + information
- Packing + cleaning
- Curb appeal
- Finishing touches
- How to go above + beyond the competition
