Tips for Getting Your House Ready for Showings / Open House

1.)    Curb Appeal

-Make sure that your sidewalks and driveways are shovelled / swept, leaves are raked, and lawn is freshly mowed

-Tidy up all extra items laying around outside such as bikes, garbage cans, recycle bins

-Clean your windows, and check that all screens are clean

-Don’t forget about your garage.  Make sure the floor is swept, and all items are stored away and hung on the wall.

2.)    Reduce Clutter

-clean off end tables and ensure all closets and storage rooms are decluttered

-reduce the amount of large furniture in your rooms if possible, to give it a larger look

3.)    Clean, Clean, Clean

-A clean house shows that you take pride in your home, and that it is well-maintained

-Appliances should sparkle.  Even if you aren’t including them in the sale, you may be able to use them as a negotiating tool later on

-Countertops, sinks, and bathtubs should all be spotless

-Clean all windows

4.)    Let the Light In

-Open your blinds, as letting in more natural light will make it look larger.
