    – Have a pre-listing home inspection
    – Have answers and information for any areas that may be of concern (Ex: quotes)
  3. Obtain a new Real Property Report if there has been any changes to the exterior structure of your home (Ex: Deck, a RPR costs roughly ~$900)
  4. Get permits for any work that has been done to your home.
  5. Paint! Painting is one of the few renovations that you earn a positive return from.
