Preparing your home to sell in this market (mandatory)

  • Smoke detector in each room in working order
  • Carbon monoxide detector on each floor in working order
  • Water heater to be double strapped
  • No signs of a leaking roof- If roof is older, be prepared to pay for a roof cert (average cost about $500), this is something the
  • lenders are asking for these days
  • Trees trimmed away from roof and chimney (at least 10 feet away per insurance requirements)

Preparing your home to sell in this market (advisable)

  • Fresh inside paint, neutral colors
  • De clutter- let the house be seen
  • De personalize- let them vision themselves living there
  • Fresh deck stain- first impressions are very important

  • Counters cleaned off and dishes put away

Once home is listed, be prepared for the following:

  • Big red post sign- this gets the attention of buyers driving around
  • Flyers on the sign (unless its winter)
  • Another sign with a QR code- buyers can get all the information for the house by just scanning this code
  • Electronic lock box- This tells us which agent showed the house and keeps track of the showings
  • Agent tour- some know this as agent caravan- Allows the agents to view the home for their potential buyers.
  • Home will be listed on the internet via Realtor.com, two MLS networks, Resort magazine website and Face book
  • Virtual tour will be posted on these sites as well
  • People driving by after viewing the home on the internet
  • Home will be advertised in Resort Homes magazine
  • Be prepared for your home to be shown in a quick short notice (don’t ever turn away a potential buyer when agent calls)
