Clean, Clean, Clean!
Nothing reflects a Well Maintained Home as much as a CLEAN Home. No matter how many great features your home has, the size of the lot, or how amazing the home actually is, if it doesn’t sparkle right down to the little details, it can turn a potential buyer off. Pay attention to things like baseboards and windows.
Use vinegar to get those hard water deposits off windows if necessary. Wipe down baseboards and repaint them if they are chipped or scuffed. Smells are important too! Dropping a little bleach in the toilet bowl before leaving for a showing helps eliminate odors and keeps your bathrooms smelling like they’ve just been cleaned. Notice the great printable checklist from Pinterest, (My favorite go-to place). Make sure the rest of your family is on-board with the cleaning process, so you can get the most from the sale of your home.
Don’t forget how important the curb appeal is to the sale. A well manicured lawn, welcoming front decor, and a freshly painted door and trim will help create the First Impression which will inevitably set the tone for the rest of the showing. Don’t forget to keep dumpsters around the side or back of your home during the listing period.
