Make sure the stove, refrigerator, microwave and range hood are spotless inside and out.
Make sure that the light bulbs are in working order (remember light and Bright).
The front of the refrigerator needs to be free of magnets, children's artwork, pictures, pos it notes, everything and make sure the exterior is spotless and smudge free. Then make sure that the inside is pleasant smelling you might use an open box of baking soda out of view of course.
Make sure that the stove, range hood and microwave are spotless and fingerprint free.
Next make sure the cabinets are completely clean inside and out. Remove as many items from the inside as possible. Remove everything you don't need for day to day living.
