When you list your home with the Realty Edge Team, we put a show packet together for potential buyers. This is a booklet that includes pictures of your home, details about your property, a map that highlights the amenities close by, and more. We also encourage our sellers to include a letter to buyers showcasing what they really love about their home.
To really boost the value of your home, you can make your own show packet - or just add to ours. Here's some information to include:
Cost of utilities - Call your electric, gas, water and even garbage company and they will give you the average cost of utilities specifically for your home in both the summer and winter months. Or you could list your month to month bills. You could also include the name and contact information of the utility companies you use.
Recent maintenance - Include anything that's been updated recently. Have you put in new tile, carpet, or maybe given the walls a fresh coat of paint? New owners like to know if an appliance has been recently serviced or replaced.
Neighbors - This could be included in your seller letter too. Make sure you keep the information positive. You could include whether you have block parties during the year, or if you have a neighbor who has a snow plowing service. Make sure you go over this section with your real estate agent. Some information may be confidential.
Seasons - Think about how your home will change over the seasons. Maybe you are selling your home in the winter and there's snow everywhere, but you have a beautiful garden. Take pictures throughout the year (if you have the time).
Favorite places - Include menus from your favorite restaurant or the number for your favorite pizza delivery place. Let the buyers know about your favorite local clothing store. If there's a great bike path nearby, include that too.
A show packet will add that personal touch to your home. Buyers will get more excited about a home if they know how much it was loved.
