When it comes to selling your Friendly Valley home, there are many things to consider. To ensure the process goes smoothly, prepare with this comprehensive checklist of must-do tasks:

Curb Appeal

First impressions are key. Clean up the lawn, trim shrubbery, and add attractive landscaping if needed. If a coat of paint is necessary, choose neutral colors that will appeal to potential buyers.

Staging and Design

Prepare your home for showings. Remove all personal items and clutter, spruce up the paint if necessary, and make sure the interior looks inviting and welcoming. If needed, hire a professional to stage and design the space.


Have a pre-inspection done if any potential issues are present. This will ensure buyers know what to expect before making an offer, and it can help you make repairs as needed.


Research homes in the area to determine the right listing price for your home. You want to make sure you’re pricing it competitively, but also making sure you get the most out of your sale.


Create a marketing strategy that covers both online and offline strategies. Invest in professional photos and videos to showcase your home, write compelling content for listings, and share on social media platforms. Consider hiring an agent or broker to help list your home. When you work with me to sell your home, I take care of all the marketing with my team. We will take all the photos, create a web page, and post on Social Media making it easy for buyers to view your property.


Be prepared for negotiations with potential buyers. Research local market conditions and know what you want out of the sale. If needed, hire an experienced negotiator to represent you.


Get your paperwork in order. Obtain necessary permits and disclosures, draft a sales contract, and make sure all documents are accurate and up-to-date.


Prepare for closing day. Make sure all necessary paperwork is complete and ready to be signed.

These are just some of the many tasks that come with selling a home. With proper preparation, you can ensure a successful sale.
