Selling a home can be stressful for everyone involved. As real estate professionals, we typically forget that our clients have no idea what they are doing when they are preparing their home to sell. We assume they know what to do. Rather than wait for them to ask, we send them a Home Seller’s Checklist.
This checklist makes it easy on sellers, and they are always appreciative. It makes things less stressful for them.
It’s a lot like cooking. If you’ve never made the meal before there is a good chance you wouldn’t know where to start — you probably wouldn’t even be sure what ingredients to buy. This checklist will allow sellers to follow your directions and check things off as they go.
