Create a Great For Sale Listing To-Do List

By Steve Flanagan

A listing sheet will typically summarize all the key information about your home. Be sure to include:

Address, including municipality, county and school district

Price

When the house was built

Number of rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms

Dimensions of each room

Best features of each room

Recent upgrades and improvements

Other appealing features, such as location

Photos

And make your listing shine by taking these steps:

Emphasize the best and most appealing features of the house first and prominently

Include photos of all key rooms

Make sure the photos are well lit and that the rooms appear spacious and uncluttered

Make sure that the best features of each room are actually visible in the photos

When in doubt, hire a professional photographer

Consider a virtual tour that helps online visitors feel that they are actually at your house
