Tips to Prepare your home for Showings

Mortgage and Lending with Zenith Mortgage Advisors (Milford,MA)


  • If you can afford it consider investing in new landscaping. Curb appeal is the first thing prospective new buyers will see.
  • Sweep/shovel sidewalks, mow the lawn, clean gutters, prune the bushes, weed the garden, and clean debris from the yard.
  • Clean the windows. This will allow the best possible light to illuminate your home. Studies show that light helps set possitive moods.
  • Make sure all of your doorbells & locks are functioning properly. 
  • Invest in a new doormat.


  • Bathrooms and kitchens should be the cleanest rooms of the home. Potpurri in those areas or scented candles are great for making the house smell good. Put out new towels.
  • Flowers in the Dining room and kitchen can help spruce up the atmosphere.
  • Soft background music can also help set a pleasant stage.
  • If you have pets and litter boxes, place them outdoors or in the garage during showings.

Try and be as flexible as you can for showings, Although Sunday Open House are popular, they don't fit everyone's schedule. The more flexible you are, the greater showings you will have and the quicker you will be on your way to sell your home.
