Think about Your Ideal Timeline

Consider:

  • When you want or need to move
  • Your alternate plan if your home doesn’t sell in your ideal timeframe
  • Your most pressing concerns about time
  • The earliest and latest acceptable closing dates
  • If you received an offer today, what would you do?

List of Updates

Prepare a list of enhancements/updates you have done since you have owned the property and dates they were completed.

Your Home

What do you like about your home?

If you were to stay for another 5 years, what, if anything, would you change?

Communication

What is your preferred method of communication?
Who needs to be notified of updates during the real estate process?

Title or Abstract: Title policy or abstract, or the location.
