HOME SELLER'S GUIDE: GATHERING DOCUMENTS


Documents

Selling your home is a very involved process. There are numerous things to think about including choosing the right REALTOR®, preparing your home for sale, negotiating with potential home buyers, handling details with a lawyer, and moving to a new home.

When you're well-prepared the entire process can be much easier. You'll feel less stressed and more organized when you give some thought to acquiring all the paperwork you need. When you have everything in one place, you won't be scrambling to find the necessary documents at the last minute. Moreover, you'll feel in control and prepared for anything that comes your way.

Here is a list of the real estate documents you should have on hand, both for your REALTOR® and for any potential buyers:

  • Mortgage documents and other related documents
  • Property survey (informs you of any changes that have been made to the property)
  • Transfer of Title document
  • Tax assessment notice, taxes paid notice
  • Utility bills (gas, water, power)
  • If applicable, relevant condominium documents
  • Maintenance documents (repair receipts for any improvements completed on the property)

Additional sale-enhancing items and information such as: 

  • photographs of your home in the summer, with the garden in full bloom
