If you're preparing to sell your home, there are a few things you should think about to help make the process as smooth as possible for the new homeowners. Here are a few things to consider:

  2. Leave a list of appliance warranties: Provide a list of appliance warranties and any relevant documentation to the new homeowners. This will make it easier for them to access any warranties or guarantees if they need to.
  3. Leave a list of instructions: If there are any special instructions or tips for the home, such as how to operate the thermostat or how to care for the yard, leave a written list for the new homeowners.

  5. Leave all keys and remotes: Make sure to leave all keys, including any garage door openers or gate keys, with the new homeowners.
