Seller Advice: Pre-marketing Checklist



Fully preparing your home for sale can make a considerable difference in the time it takes to sell it. You can help eliminate buyer objections before they arise by making necessary repairs and improvements, some of which are suggested below.
Outdoors
Spruce up your garden and lawn; trim shrubbery and replace dead plants.
Yard and patio should be neat; outdoor furniture should be clean and in good shape.
Clean or paint your front door - remember first impressions last the longest!
Manicure your front yard; make sure your driveway and entryway are free of clutter.
Exterior
Check that house numbers, mailbox, and exterior lighting are all in good condition.
Touch up with fresh paint as needed.
Inspect chimney for cracks or earthquake damage.
Repair loose trim, drain pipes, and fencing.
Clean stains and window screens.
Garage

Clean the floor.
Living Areas

Replace burnt out light bulbs.
Clean the fireplace and remove smoke stains from the wall and mantle.
Clean window coverings.
