Pre-Showing Checklist

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!⁣


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⁣

Remember buyers are looking at your house — not your housekeeping skills. But you still want your home to look spectacular for every single buyer. ⁣
