Putting your home on the market

Nobody knows your homes features and advantages better than you. You will need to tell us about these features so that we can highlight them on your listing sheet. The idea is to highlight specific features that provide added value. 

Some Things to Consider when Determining Your Home's Selling Price are: 
• The age of your home. 
• What kind of condition is it in? 
• Does the house need remodeling, or repairs? 
• What are similar homes in the same neighborhood selling for? 
• Are homes in your area appreciating in value? 
• Are there an excessive number of homes in your neighborhood for sale? 

“Your home should be priced similar to what other comparable properties have sold for, or are listed at, in neighborhoods similar to yours”. 

To get top dollar you need to make your home look as good as possible to attract buyers. Ensure that your home is clean both inside and outside. If the interior paint is bad or if there are cracks in the walls you should consider repairing them and re-painting. Throughout the home be sure to eliminate clutter. Empty storage areas and reduce the clutter in your closets. This will make the home seem more spacious. Be sure to air out the house if there are any odors or food smells. Remember, an odor will be significantly more noticeable to a visitor than to the homeowner. 

First impressions are critical When a potential home buyer first looks at your property they will make a decision as to whether or not to even look at the inside of the home. It isn’t going to matter that you have a great inside or backyard if they get turned off looking at the front yard. 

Your Home's "Curb Appeal" is extremely important. Make sure the home exterior looks good by caulking, painting or staining where necessary. Trim the grass, hedges, shrubs, trees and plants. Again, make sure all clutter is removed. Hide from view items like garbage cans, garden tools and equipment such as lawn mowers, wheel barrels, etc. Even something as simple as cleaning and power washing or hosing down the sidewalk, walkways, patios, and cleaning the front door will help. 

It is very important to list the Home Furnishings that are included in the sale of the property. You will need to have a list of the personal property that is included (and that which is not included) in the property for sale. 

Items that are typically included with the house: built in appliances such as a stove, microwave, disposal, draperies, drapery rods, swimming pool equipment and chemicals, awnings, lighting fixtures, ceiling fans, closet systems, in wall speakers, window shutters, and sometimes book cases, refrigerators, washing machines and dryers. The home seller must make clear all items that do not go with the house. 

• Any known property easements should be disclosed up-front. 
• Property Taxes / Condominium Fees. 
• Utility bills. you should provide a record of the past 12 months of utility bills, including gas, electric, sewer, water, and trash. Most buyers will want to know the history of utility costs. 

• In Arizona the seller MUST provide a Well and Septic Inspection before closing the sale.
