When selling your home, your first thought may not be keeping potential buyers happy. With all the moving parts of home sales, it can be easy to forget that the little things truly do count – especially when it comes to the happiness of potential buyers. Yes – your home can probably sell itself as-is, but going the extra yard to boost interest in your home is worth it. You can start by putting together a home binder and include the following items for potential buyers to check out:
When a buyer is touring your home, they are going to be curious about the condition of the various parts of your home, from mechanics to appliances. By giving this information up front, you can avoid a lot of back and forth in the future. Included appliance manuals/warranties, smart home tech how to’s, a list of updates, home maintenance (ie: last time your HVAC was serviced), and age of mechanicals, roof, and appliances.
Create a master sheet of who you use for all of your homeowner needs. From landscapers to handymen, plumbers, and pest control. Try to include your recommendation for maintenance for any features your home has.
What made you love where your home is? Include pamphlets from your favorite restaurants, info about local parks, or any neighborhood features that made your location so great. If you have kids, be sure to include things they loved about the area.
