You want a checklist for preparing your home for sale. One of the best ways to prepare your home for sale is to order a pre-sale home inspection. A pre listing home inspection will allow you to have a checklist of things to fix or repair before putting your house up for sale. This list, if followed as a checklist of what to repair and what to leave alone, can prepare you for how to get your house ready to sell in 30 days or less.
Home inspections usually cost between $300-$500 depending on what region your in. However, making a few changes here and there based on what they find will save you tons of time in negotiating with potential buyers and sets the stage for your house to be turnkey when the buyer walks in the door.
Are you selling a house that needs repairs or a house in poor condition? One of the best ways to be prepared to sell a house, especially if it needs repairs is to get a pre-sale home inspection.
What this entails is hiring a home inspector to give you a list of what needs repairs. Once you have this list, it is very easy to see what repairs are easy and cheap versus the ones that are going to pound your pocketbook. What you'll find, you'll need to disclose to your buyer, but it is much better to fix the small stuff before listing the home so that when the buyer comes in, there will be little to nothing to fix up. It essentially gives you a checklist. It is very easy to check with a contractor to get price estimates on how much everything will cost and give you an idea of what you're willing to take on versus what you'll leave for the buyer to take care of.
