What does broom clean mean – Waterford home selling tips

Real Estate Agent with Real Estate One 6501304423


When you read the purchase contract you will see the term “broom clean”.  What does that mean for you the Waterford home seller?  Broom clean means that ALL your junk is out.  You CANNOT LEAVE:


1.            Junk you don’t want


2.            Old lumber or stuff that you thought you might someday use in the garage


3.            Stuff in the attic that you are too lazy to move out


So the bottom line is when you are selling your Waterford home when you walk into a room or closet it should be totally empty.  No trash anywhere.  You do not have to clean the home perfectly.  You  do not have to dust, or wash windows unless you want to.  It would be nice if you vacuumed the home.


Remember….do as you would want done to you.   You may go a little out of your way, but you are making the world just a little nicer to live in.  So I hope this explanation of BROOM CLEAN helped you understand what you need to do when selling your Waterford home.

Thanks for the post, but I'd go much farther.  Everything the buyer didn't specifically ask for (and the seller agreed to leave) needs to be removed, including, but not limited to: cleaning supplies, linens, old appliances like microwaves and toaster ovens, area rugs, old basement tables and tools, newspapers and magazines, etc.  This is a big problem.  Many buyers will hold up the closing until its been cleared out.  I had one!
