Putting your home on the market means you’ll have potential buyers stopping by at any given time. You want to have your home “show ready” at all times during this period. Here are habits that successful home sellers have in common: 1) De-clutter: remove any clutter from your home; store it, donate it, or throw it away. This small step will make your house feel larger to potential buyers. 2) Deep Clean: take a few days to really do some Spring cleaning. Clean the grout, the glass shower door, inside the oven, under the bed, etc. All those little places that tend to get missed. And if life always seems to get in the way, ask your realtor if they have a cleaner you could hire. It might be worth the money to have someone else take over the task. Don’t forget to do a deep clean once a week there after. 3) Tidy Up: Now that your home is spotless, try to keep it that way as much as possible. Wake up a few minutes early so you have time to do a spot check before heading out the door. 4) Lawn Care: keep your bushes trimmed, your lawn cut, and your weeds pulled. As realtors, we can tell you that buyers are always impressed by clean, organized, well kept houses. It shows pride of ownership and buyers take notice.
