How Much Cleaning Of Our North Shore Long Island House Must We Do Before Moving Out?
This is a great question.
Being Realtors on The North Shore Of Long Island, we see houses being left in all kinds of condition. We see homes that have been scrubbed for the new owners, ones that are broom swept, and those with trash left behind.
Most of the time, sellers leave the house in pretty good condition. They clean the kitchen and baths, they vacuum the floors, they clean the counter tops and mop the floors.
Many even have their maid or a cleaning crew completely clean the house for the new owners, but sometimes it's not as clean as it should be.
Recently we went on a walk-through and found the house with:
Trash all around
Food on the counters, in the cabinets and the refrigerator and freezer full
The electric was turned off so the food was starting to rot
The cabinets were not cleaned out
Closets were full of dirty clothes on the floor
Old broken appliances were left all over
The garage was a total mess
Maybe the TV Show "PICKERS" would have found something of value, but to our clients and us, it was all just trash!
So sellers, keep this in mind, leave your house to the new buyers just the way you would like to find your new one ~ It's really the right thing to do!
