How do I submit a home for sale?

Deliver empty and clean

Firstly, it is customary for the owner-occupied home to be delivered empty, with the exception of the furnishings and, if applicable, specific items included on the list of movable property. The items taken over by the buyers may also remain in the home. Check all cupboards and areas thoroughly to make sure all items are gone. As a seller, it is wise to do a final inspection of the home yourself to ensure that nothing has been overlooked.

Secondly, it is very important that the house is delivered in a clean condition. Taking a broom, vacuum cleaner and mop through the house is certainly recommended, and don't forget the kitchen appliances, especially the oven or combination microwave. It is very disappointing for the buyers or potential buyers if the house is not clean. Also make sure that the shed, balcony and garage are swept and left tidy. If you prefer that, you can consider hiring a cleaning company.

Furnished or completely empty?

The house can be placed on the housing market either furnished or completely empty. This completely depends on the condition of the house and the interior. It is often recommended to completely clear out an old owner-occupied home with dated furnishings that could use a makeover. This ensures that the spaces are clearly visible and potential buyers can see exactly what they could do with the spaces and how large they are.

For owner-occupied homes that are still in good condition and whose furnishings are contemporary, the real estate agent may advise you to advertise the home furnished. This ensures that the house looks homely and potential buyers can imagine what it could be like. Various beautiful furnishings or custom-made objects that you have no further plans for could possibly be taken over. This also saves work if the house has to be cleared for the transfer.

The final inspection

An inspection is carried out before the legal transfer at the notary. During this inspection, the home is checked at various points. In principle, the property must correspond to the condition it was in during the last viewing at the time of closing the deal. In addition, the meter readings are also recorded during the final inspection.
