This checklist will help you to prepare for our first meeting to discuss selling your home.
Pre-Listing Appointment Checklist
Please have the following information prior to our meeting and allow 90 minutes to 2 hours for that meeting. Both husband and wife need to be present. Any information you cannot provide at the time of our meeting would still be very useful to have as soon as you can provide it.
Having this information will make it easier for me to set up a marketing plan should you hire me to be your Realtor, it will help me prepare a Seller’s Net Proceeds sheet and it will provide material for a Home Portfolio that will be displayed in your home.
Copy of your TITLE INSURANCE policy. If you don’t have a copy then please provide a copy of your HUD statement, which should show the name of the title insurance company and may show the policy number.
Copy of LATEST STATEMENT from your mortgage company showing your current balance and contact information.
A copy of your property SURVEY if you have one.
A copy of any FLOORPLAN that you might have.
A copy of any APPRAISAL that would provide SQUAREFOOTAGE and perhaps a FLOORPLAN.
A copy of any HOACovenants and/or By-Laws. If you don’t have them I can probably get them from your HOA management company’s website or whomever is President of the HOA.
