We're On Our Way!

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

Keeping a home in ready-to-show condition can be stressful and not always easy to do; afterall, you do live in the home, dishes do get dirty, and things get dusty.

Here is sound advice for quick cleanup when a Realtor calls to say "We're on our way".  

  1. Eliminate: Take a quick assessment and eliminate anything that doesn't belong like newspapers, food on dishes, food containers, full trash cans; actually anything you can throw away.
  2. Surface Clean: Wipe off the counters in the kitchen and bathrooms and wiped down the mirrors. Use a "Swiffer" type mop on floors and vacuum main traffic areas.
  3. Organize: If you haven't thrown it out,  arrange it. Put dirty dishes in the dishwasher, arrange the magazines and make your bed. Don't try to clean up every little space; just put the items together so they look neat.
  4. Hide: Now look around and see what is left. If you don't want it to show, hide it in a closet.
  5. Let the Light in: Open the blinds a little to let the light in and turn on the lamps.
  6. Spray: Spray a "quick odor" eliminating house spray and then light a scented candle in the front room and kitchen.
 Now, sit down and relax.  You are ready to show your home to prospective buyers.
