One of the craziest parts of selling is prepping for showings —especially on short notice! Use this 10-step checklist to simplify the process and make a killer first impression on buyers.
A quick heads up — a top-to-bottom deep clean of your house before it hits the market goes a long way in keeping no-notice prep doable. I highly recommend it - even if you have to hire it out. It's worth every penny!
8 STEPS TO A SHOW-STOPPING HOME SHOWING:
Hide everyday clutter like laundry, towels, dish rags, small appliances, toys, dishes, and pet "stuff."
Replace everyday bath towels with crisp white "show" towels.
Put toilet seats down and take out all the trash.
Clear off and wipe down kitchen and bathroom counters.
Make the beds.
Vacuum and sweep all floors. (Short on time? Go for the main living areas.)
Put valuables away or take them with you.
Open all the interior doors, turn on all the lights, open all blinds and curtains
