3 Safety Tips to Follow When Selling Your Magnolia or Tomball TX Home
With spring almost here, many Magnolia TX homeowners may be considering listing their property to capitalize on the influx of buyers soon to hit the market. But before you invite the season’s buyers through your front door, it’s important to follow a few precautions to keep both your home and your belongings safe. Below are three safety tips to follow this spring after listing your Texas home:
Hide your valuables
As you make preparations for an open house or showing, take care to put away all credit cards, spare keys, jewelry, and any other valuables that you typically keep out. You may also want to hide valuables that you leave handy in your personal closet or bathroom closet— every day jewelry, for instance. Buyers may decide to peek in closets and you’ll be glad that you put these items away.
Hide personal information
When you list your Magnolia or Tomball TX home, remember that buyers will be viewing the property when you are not home. It’s essential that you put away any bills or mail with personal information listed on it, including bank statements and the like. On the same note, be sure you lock up any laptops, tablets or other valuable electronics when you’re away. The last thing you want is to return home to find one missing!
Lock the doors
As you leave your home for it to be shown, lock the doors behind you. The real estate agent showing the property will have a way to access the home through the lockbox on the door. What you don’t want is any uninvited visitors ushering themselves inside when neither you nor the real estate agent are present.
Spring can be a busy time of year—not just for the real estate market—and many tasks can fall by the wayside, including safety precautions. However, getting a head start can help you secure your property and set you up for seller success. Do not hesitate to reach out with any questions you have about selling your home in the Magnolia area this year!
