information ready to go in case the buyer or lender requests it.

might request during this phase of selling your home.
Manuals for appliances
Receipts of work done to the home -
including all major & minor renovations
All keys and garage door openers
Surveys previously done

Negotiating the deal
Disclose everything. Be proactive to disclose all
known defects to buyers - avoid legal problems
Remember your priorities, but also respect the
buyer, as this will be their next home & they are
nervous about the unknowns.
Ask all of your questions. Offers may include
complicated terminology, which can be clarified
Respond quickly. The mood for the buyer to buy is
exactly when the offer is made - don't delay.
Meet halfway if there are disagreements about
small expenses - split the difference and move on.
Stay calm, even if the situation is tense.
