Keeping Your Home Neat and Tidy
Keeping your home picked up at all times can make showings go better and selling it easier on you and your Realtor.
In today’s buyer’s market with tons of inventory for buyers to pick and choose from, your home must meet the cleanliness test. You want buyers to stick around as long as possible. This will not happen if you have a home that smells like dirty diapers and looks like a dorm room after mid-term exams.
Change your ways if you want to beat the competition and sell your home today. Not everyone makes his or her bed every day, but when selling a home it is recommended that you develop the habit. Pick up papers, keep soap and toothbrushes stored away, do not leave empty glasses in the family room and keep everything dusted and vacuumed. It’s even a good idea to remove all the shampoo bottles and used soap from your shower. Remember, less is always better when it comes to personal items a buyer sees.
The less “lived-in” your home looks the better. Try your best to have it look like a model home – a home with furniture but nobody lives there.
