Showing Off Your Home - Every Time!

These tips can help your house make the best impression, every time it is previewed by sales professionals or shown to prospective buyers:

 

Exterior

  • Remove toys, newspapers, yard tools and other clutter.

  • Tidy up; pick up after pets.

  • Park vehicles in the garage or on the street; leave the driveway clear.

  • Add color with flowers and potted plants.

Interior

  • Make beds; clean up dishes; empty wastebaskets.

  • Remove clutter throughout; organize closets and cupboards; put away toys.

  • Set out "show towels" in baths.

  • Freshen the air; potpourri or baked bread aroma; deodorize pet areas.

  • Set comfortable temperature.

  • Do quick vacuuming and dusting.

  • Arrange fresh flowers throughout.

  • Fire in fireplace (when appropriate).

  • Turn off television; play soft background music.

  • Open drapes and shades; turn on lights.

those are great tips!  Many home sellers don't realize that ambiance is all a part of the sell.

I would add to exterior to make sure that any overgrown vegetation is pruned. While some people do like the "wild look," others view it as an unkept and unmaintained home and may never get to the interior.
