Here’s a checklist that we’ve developed to help guide you when selling your home.
Create a for sale listing for your home
Start listing on homelister.com
Add as many details as you can to your listing
Decide on a listing price
Decide on the commission to offer (if any) to buyer’s brokers
Upload Photos or select Professional Photography
Prepare your home for showing
Get a lockbox so buyers agents can show your home
Put as much away in closets or in storage as you can
Organize closets as much as possible – a neat and organized closet is a surprisingly good seller of a home – Expert tip: organize the clothes in your closet by color, it will look like a retail store and people will love it.
Clean the windows inside and out
Clean up the yard
Put some potted flowers or plants on the front steps or porch
Get some fresh flowers – lilies are great because they have a strong smell
Clean off all horizontal surfaces
Dust everywhere (even on top of the fridge and behind the tv)
Invite someone over to tell you if any room in your house smells – of pets, of mildew, anything
Market your home
Put your home on Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com and everywhere else – Score! We already did this for you when you completed your listing.
HomeLister will provide you with a yard sign so buyers know you are selling
Create an infosheet to give to buyers about your home
Create an online advertising package to further promote your home
Working with buyers
Set Open House times
Review Offers Submitted
Update HomeLister Listing when an offer is accepted
Send the Legal Contract and Disclosures
Schedule the closing time and place
Schedule the final walkthrough with the buyer
Set up an online closing or a mobile closing (CA only allows mobile closings) if you don’t wish to attend the closing in person.
Upload any documents signed into HomeLister Document Vault
Congratulations!!! You have sold your home.
