SELLER’S CHECKLIST

Potential buyers who visit your home will be trying to imagine how it feels to live there themselves. Go through your house with this checklist and make sure that all of these items are attended to. This will greatly help in the marketing of your home! Experience has shown that with a little effort, and a nominal amount of money spent in replacing and repairing the small items, a substantial difference can be realized in the final selling price!
