                        The Ten Commandments Of Selling A Home  


So your home’s on the market — are you jazzed about getting it sold? Good. But there are a few things you need to know. More specifically, ten things. They’re called “The Ten Commandments of Selling a Home.” 

Read them. Absorb them. Emblazon them to memory, because one tiny mis-step can make your dream of moving on to your next home come crashing down like a sandcastle at high tide. 


Thou shalt vacate the house for all showings.        

-Thou shalt assume every day is a showing day. Keep it clean and clutter free, with pets properly secured. 

-Thou shalt not turn off utilities before closing. 

-Thou shalt fill out property condition disclosure completely and disclose all known defects. 

-Thou shalt not stop paying the mortgage. 

-Thou shalt not rely upon Zillow to determine your sales price (that’s what your agent is for).  

-Thou shalt make all beds before all showings (which includes NOT being in bed during showings). 

-Thou shalt send anyone inquiring about the property to your agent. 

-Thou shalt not call your agent at 11 PM. 

-Thou shall not cook broccoli.
