Are you selling a vacant Barrington home?  As soon as you have vacated the house the flies and bugs are going to make themselves at home. Somehow they find their way in and take up residence. Silly on their part because there isn't going to be much food around, in fact they'll become food for the spiders, and one way or another they are going to die; on the carpet, in the bath tub, in the sinks, everywhere. dead bugs on your carpet

As time passes more dead bugs, more dead flies, fat spiders but even some of those die. Before long your vacant Barrington home is not so appealing to buyers. Dead bugs or alive bugs make buyers think one thing.

An infested house. Not sure if I want to buy a house full of dead bugs, there must be a problem. Or just plain 'eww' let's move on.

So what should you do? If you are still local you should visit the house often, and clear up the dead flies and bugs. Vacuum your carpets and clean the tub, just make sure they are all gone. What if you are not local? Make sure your listing agent is willing to take care of this for you.

Great advice, Corinne!  There are some very well-known phobias out there .. and bugs top the list!  You're providing a great service to your clients by doing your "fluff and flush".  Wouldn't it be sad to lose a buyer over a problem so easily taken care of???
