Seller Checklist

  1. Decide whether you want to sell your own home (for sale by owner) or use the resources of a real estate professional.  Get a free brochure about the advantages of working with a REALTOR®. This brochure is also available in Spanish.
  2. Get your home ready to sell.  Spend time on preparing your home before it is listed.  You will want it to outshine its competition and look as attractive as possible.
  3. Educate yourself about sales prices of homes in your neighborhood and your community.  A realistic understanding of how to price your home is a critical element in a successful sale. Don’t depend on your neighbor’s stories about sales prices of homes—get the facts.
  4. Remember that you may have to offer closing cost assistance to make the sale of the home possible.
  5. Educate yourself about different types of loans and how you can help a ready, willing and able buyer purchase your home.
