Make Sure That Your Home Shows Well

November 29, 2012 - Updated: April 26, 2014

Make Sure That Your Home Shows Well By Creating a Buying Mood

First Impression is Curb Appeal

  • Trim trees, shrubs and hedges
  • Cut lawn
  • Weed and edge gardens
  • Touch up paint
  • Clear drive and walk ways of leaves, snow and ice
  • Clean out garage and get rid of litter

 

Create That Buying Mood:

  • Arrange to be absent during all showings
  • Turn on all the lights
  • Open draperies during the daytime
  • Play soft background music
  • Control your pets – empty litter box
  • Ensure that your home smells fresh
  • Turn on air conditioning when necessary
  • Clean front entrance

 

Is Your Home Well Maintained?

  • Is the paint fairly fresh and not dated looking?
  • Replace burned out light bulbs
  • Clean and repair windows
  • Tighten door knobs and cupboard latches
  • Clean furnace and humidifier
  • Repairs seals around tub and sink
  • Oil squeaking doors

 Cleanliness

  • Clean refrigerator, stove, microwave and dishwasher surfaces
  • Clean washer, dryer and laundry sinks
  • Clean and freshen bathrooms
  • Wash floors
  • Vacuum and shampoo carpets

 

Clear Space

  • Clear kitchen and bathroom counters
  • Clear bedroom cabinetry
  • Store extra furniture and knickknacks
  • Closets should be neat and tidy
  • Store your photos and mementos away
