When you decide to sell your home, thereís a long list of things that youíll need to do from finding a real estate agent to making repairs around the home. Itís nice to have a to-do list handy to help you figure out what you need to do and when throughout the course of the sale of your home. 


Find Out The Estimated Value Of Your Home


You should do a quick search online to see what your property is valued at. Some websites even have the number of views that your property has gotten over its lifetime on the site. This will give you an idea of how much you might get for the sale of your home as well as how much interest there may be in buying the home to begin with. If you see what your, home has listed in a basic online search, youíll be able to tell what needs to be updated when the home is actually listed by your realtor.   


Get Things Fixed


If there have been issues in the home, you should work on getting them fixed. Youíll also need to know what has happened in the home over the years in order to put together a proper disclosure. Has the basement flooded? Did you face an electrical fire?  All of these problems need to be listed. You can also disclose what you did to remedy the issues. The buyer has a right to know and understand that they are moving in under good conditions. 


Learn About Potential Real Estate Agents


Itís so important to hire the right agent when youíre selling your home. You are getting a return on your initial investment, so you want it to be a good one! Youíll also want to know that you have someone who will be there to do home showings, process paperwork, and be your advocate throughout the process. You can contact various references that real estate agents provide and ask how they felt about the agentís work. 


Find Out How Your Home Will Be Marketed


In Todayís technology-based world, there are so many ways that a home can be marketed. This includes the use of websites, social media, open houses, video tours, and photos. Your agent should be well-versed in all of these areas, or be able to hire people who do know how to best use these areas of marketing. Every avenue that is used to get buyers for your home is beneficial to you as a seller.



Understanding the process of how a home is sold can help you to be prepared when youíre ready to sell.

There are a host of features, amenities and structural issues to focus on while house shopping. The volume of items to examine and test is so large, that it's easy to miss important details about a house you're a hairs breadth away from buying.

Small details turn big during home buying process

Yet, it's the details that could make or break a house. That's why it's important to be fully engaged in the house shopping process. Stay away from leaving all of the responsibility of checking properties out with your realtor.

As experienced and as reputable as your realtor might be, she's not the one who is going to be living in the house. For this reason, even if your realtor tried, she might not care as much about the house that you are about to buy as you do.

Common things to look for while house shopping include discolored, missing, curled or spotted roof tiles and water stains on floors, ceilings and walls. If you're paying for a house with central air conditioning, check the AC unit. Also, check other cooling and heating units. Avoid assuming that these devices are functioning properly simply because current homeowners, your realtor or even a housing inspector haven't mentioned problems with the units.

In addition to checking out major appliances and big utility housing units, pay attention to small details. Types of small details to zone in on include:

  • Wires - Check to see that wires aren't frayed,exposed or broken
  • Wood flooring, stairs and walls - Termites aren't the only pests that hide in wood. Roaches, ants and other pests hide in and destroy wood
  • Windows - Look for cracks in windows. A problem with this single detail could cause your utility bill to spike.
  • Door locks - Although you can replace door locks, it may pay to ensure that you have at least one exterior door lock that has no external entry point. This type of lock can only be opened from inside the house.
  • Noises - Walk through houses that you're thinking about buying to make sure that appliances aren't making loud humming, banging or popping noises.
  • Faucets - Examine kitchen, bathroom, basement and other faucets. Make sure that faucet handles aren't loose or can't easily be knocked away from walls.
  • Sidewalks and driveways - See if sidewalks and driveways are cracked or bubbled.
  • Lawns - Look for weeds, bald and brown spots in front and back lawns.

Take a closer look at the house you want to buy

Overlooking details during the house shopping stage can make you dig deep into your bank account after you buy a house. Instead of limiting your personal inspection to major housing appliances, the roof and floors, take a close look at small devices in a house.

Not only could these small devices perform a big job, these small devices might be connected to larger housing features. For example, a cracked sink pipe or a cracked pipe sealer might cause bathroom and kitchen leaks. Left broken, these leaks could end up costing you hundreds of dollars, especially as they erode flooring.

Your realtor might miss these details. It's an echo of the reason why it's important to accept the responsibility of thoroughly checking out a house before you buy it. This might include hiring an independent house inspector to look at the house. At the least, it calls for you to check wiring, plumbing and heating and cooling units to see if they are showing signs of excessive wear and tear. If you do spot problems with seemingly small details at a house, tell your realtor. Ask your realtor to negotiate a lower price on the house if you still want to move forward with the purchase.
