Step 8:  Prepare Your Home For Sale

Whether or not you have a property inspector review your home for defects, you should also inspect the home yourself. Imagine yourself as the buyer. What items would you like to see in working order?  Are there cracks, chips, wear, stains, or missing pieces that really should be fixed?  Go through the home methodically making a list of items that should be addressed.  The homeowner in you has grown accustomed to a lot of items that really need fixing.  You might have to really force yourself to be objective, but it's what you must do if you want to get the best price for your home.

The document below goes into great detail about how to review your own home. Choose repairs wisely; some repairs you think are important do not actually increase the value of your home.
