Listing Your Home? Get the Ultimate Checklist & Q&A

Updated: Jan 18


There is a reason why when Sean and Blanca sell a home, they're selling for over 100% of the list price over the past 2 years! Our sellers are well prepared and it makes a huge difference. It's a team effort!


Here is a checklist/action-list to help you get ready for listing your home.


Please save or print this as a reference moving forward.


 


Part 1 - Preparation


Preparing is the most important part of the sales process. Some of our clients need 12-18 months to prepare. Some need to move FAST! Either way, we're here to help every step of the way.


Book your consultation with Sean and Blanca

This is a good 1st step. It's free and there is no obligation. Your home won't be ready (cleaned, decluttered), and that's normal. Even if you end up NOT selling - that's OK. This is not a sales pitch, it's just a consultation. What's great about having Sean and Blanca tour your home is, they'll provide you a detailed market report, a seller net sheet, and a bunch of ideas and options that you might not have thought of.

#Homework Fill out the Seller's Disclosure Statement


Get a copy of the Seller's Disclosures here

Seller's disclosures are an important part of the Listing process. You don't need to worry about over-disclosing. The rule of thumb is, "if you're wondering IF you should disclose something - you should.

A well-written Disclosure statement will help build TRUST with potential buyers. Be detailed and take your time while filling these out. I've created a how-to video here, just click on the image below.

The main purpose of the seller's disclosures is to tell them anything about the home that could affect the use or enjoyment of the property.

Filling them out by hand is best but if you'd like to use an online program you may. When you are finished, you can scan and email them to me or I can pick them up at the house later. This should be done by the time we hit the market, please.
