Now that you have decided to move out of your home, it is time to get serious about selling the property. Most sellers are interested in two things: a quick sale and a good price.

Step #2: Get a home inspection.
While the buyer will get their own home inspection done prior to buying the house, it is a good idea for the seller to pay for one ahead of time. This can alert you to any potential issues that you will need to take care of before selling home. Knowledge is power and the $200-$400 price tag of the home inspection is well worth it. If you catch any problems early, you can get rectify them before you find a buyer, allowing you to schedule the repairs at a time that is convenient for you and helping to expedite the closing process later on.
Step #3: Spruce up your home.
It is not advisable to make any major upgrades at this time, since you most likely will not recoup the initial investment at the time of the sale, but minor repairs and updates can go a long way towards making your home appear move in ready.
Consider touching up your home’s interior and exterior paint. This can be a simple as cleaning baseboards and repainting window trim or as labor intensive as repainting the entire house. A fresh, clean coat of paint can do wonders to improve your home’s appearance. Also make sure your yard and landscaping is at its best. Make sure the edges of your lawn are trimmed and your gardens are clear of weeds and dead or dying plants.
Step #4: Figure out your list price.
Choosing a list price is very important. You do not want to undersell yourself, but a home that is priced too high will quickly be passed over by potential buyers. Take a look at some of the other, similar homes in your area that have recently sold. What was the asking price? Did the owner accept an offer that was at, above, or below the list price? This can help to give you an idea of what your home might be worth in today’s market.
