Checklist when selling your home.


Everything you can do to present your home at its absolute best.

Once you’ve decided to put your home on the market, it’s important to take a close look at it from the viewpoint of a prospective buyer. Objectively evaluating each area and then making your home “show ready” can have a major pay-off in terms of the offers it will attract and how soon those offers come in.

Prepare For Each and Every Showing

  • Make your home as appealing as possible.
  • Remove dogs or cats to the yard or confine them in one area.
  • Open draperies and curtains and turn on all lights.
  • Play quiet, and low-keyed soft music.
  • Arrange fresh flowers whenever possible; if it is winter, display a color photo of your yard in full bloom.
  • Turn off all television sets.
  • If winter, light a fire in the fireplace.
  • Try to stay in one area of the house when it’s being shown or try not to be home.
  • Let the Weichert Sales Associate who’s showing your home answer any questions or objections.
