How to know if you’re ready to list your home? The same question perhaps has been asked by many homeowners who plan to sell their house, but still confuse on the process. Commonly, there are two types of homeowners who want to sell house. The first type is the one who actually wants to do the business on their own; meanwhile, the second type is the one who prefers to choose an agent to sell it for them. Perhaps as the second type, you do not need to deal with any kind of preparations by yourself, but what if you are the fist type? What are the things that you need to prepare? Well, let’s get on it one by one, shall we?
Sell as Individual: Preparation and Steps
First of all, you need to check the condition of your house. Does it require a lot of repairmen? If it does, you need to deal with it. Perhaps you can start by checking on the roof and floor. You can consider these questions:
· How is the condition of the floor?
· Do I need to replace it with the new ones or just clean and wipe it?
· How is the condition of the roof?
· Do you need to replace it?
All of these questions should be asked and followed by checking the condition of the roof and the floor directly.
After you check all, you can continue by looking at your kitchen. Kitchen is the heart of your house. it is where most of the activities happen every day. Therefore, you need to make sure that your kitchen is still eligible for cooking. Eligible means all electronic devices in the kitchen including the fridge and stove are in good condition, there is no plumbing problems, and so forth. Commonly, the most important things that you should do as homeowners are to make sure all the appliances are usable and also clean. The hygiene of your house is also a plus score. You do not want the buyers living in your house that looks like swamp, right? The next thing that you should consider is the construction including the woods.
If you just renovate the house and live for about 1 to 2 years, probably you do not need to deal with termites. However, if you have been living in your house for more than 10 years, and during that time you have not replaced or checked the condition of the wood, then it is advisable for you to call termites’ exterminators. Homeowners who neglect these facts cannot gain a lot of profits from the selling.
