Keeping Your Home in Shape for Showing

Homes that have been well-maintained and convey pride of ownership appeal to perceptive, motivated buyers. Below are some of the simple steps you can take to ensure you home is in “show shape” when you are ready to sell.

  • Clean or replace carpet and/or other flooring, such as vinyl or hardwoods
  • Wash the windows and window coverings
  • Clean the kitchen and baths until they sparkle
  • Clear and pack away clutter and sell or excess furniture
  • Clean your closets, extra storage space helps sell homes
  • Paint or touch up any rooms that need it. Use neutral colors which have more universal appeal.
  • Take down family pictures and teen posters. These make it harder for buyers to imagine the as their own.
  • Clean the storage and garage. Neatly stack and store boxes.

Your home’s cleanliness and appeal create an unconscious impression. That impression can determine the likelihood of an offer and the time the home is on the market.

I’d be happy to stop by and offer you specific suggestions to you “stage” your home. This is the time for minor adjustments, not a major remodel. Please call or email me with any questions. Perhaps I can save you some time and money.
