DO Leave Keys, Owner's Manuals, and WarrantiesLabel all of the keys to the home and leave them in one place in a bag or envelope where they will find them. Your buyers will also appreciate if you leave any owner's manuals or warranties for appliances in on drawer where they can find them and refer to them when necessary.
DO: Provide a Vendor ListHave you hired and been happy with a specific pest control company, or home maintenance service? It's completely appropriate to leave a referral for them in your home before you leave. They will appreciate knowing who they can trust, and who is already familiar with their new home.
DO: Clean Your Home From Top to BottomIt is important that your home is immaculate for the buyer walk-through. After you've moved all of your belongings out (staged pieces or other articles), you will want to give your home a complete cleaning. Look for the details and don't overlook something just because you think the buyer won't notice. Peek inside every cabinet, refrigerator, oven and more.
DO: Make Note of Any DamageMoving can often invoke damages in the process. A scuffed wall, and dinged door frame - If you accidentally break something in the process, be sure to mention it to your Colorado Springs real estate agent. From there we can work together to make arrangements to have it repaired.
DO: Replace Burned Out BulbsDoes this seem like a silly task? Buyers will most likely check to see if light fixtures are working, so you'll want to check them before you leave.
DON'T: Leave Anything BehindWhen you leave, your house should be complete empty. Don't leave anything except for items that have been agreed upon like certain pieces of furniture, appliances, etc. Pick up all trash and dispose of it properly before leaving for the last time.
DON'T: Forget About the LandscapingWhile you're so busy on the inside, it can be easy to forget out your landscaping, but it's important to not overlook this. Tidy things up, and remember to clean out the shed, under the deck, and remove any garden decor.
DON'T: Wait Until the Very Last MinuteWhen going through the process of closing your home, you will be incredibly busy. Not to mention that in the process of moving from one home, you're probably moving INTO another. Do not wait until the very last minute to look over your home and make sure everything is in tip-top shape. Plan to have your house vacated a few days before closing to prepare your home for the walk-through.
