finally, handing your home off to the new owner, it can be a long and stressful journey. So, what are the steps that can be taken to cut back on the stress? Here are a few that can be used when selling a home!

  • Get Inspected – We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: this step is absolutely vital. Whether you are buying or selling your home, you’ll want an expert and thorough inspection to save you major headaches down the road.
  • Get Organized – There will be a lot to do, so a little planning and organization now, will go a long way. Not only will you be dealing with the stress of moving, there will be the business side of the transaction.
  • Make Lists – There will be so many things to do, a simple list can keep you from having the “I can’t believe I forgot that” moment later. Start with a good solid list (change address with post office, get boxes, organize maintenance documents, etc.)
  • Keep good records – From maintenance to financial records having this information pulled together before starting the sales process will save you the last minute scramble to find things you need.

As the sales process moves forward, you can rest assured that many people have survived this stressful time. From finding a realtor or broker to identifying a buyer and finally through the sale, being prepared by using the steps will make this process easier.
