If you want to reduce the amount of risk you’re exposed to when selling your home, here are three tips you must follow.
1. Secure your valuables. Any jewelry or other things of that nature should be placed in a bank deposit box, a safe, or any area in your home you feel is secure. I know this sounds crazy, but in this day and age, you’d better secure any prescription drugs as well.
2. Take care of any safety hazards. You’ve probably been able to work around a loose rail or wonky step, but now’s the time to get those things taken care of. Insurance companies say that the most frequent claims made against homeowners are slip-and-fall claims.

3. Check with your insurance company that you have adequate medical and liability insurance. You probably do, but it doesn’t hurt to double-check, because accidents can happen. As Ben Franklin once said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
