When you're selling your home, there are a million things to think about. Here's a checklist of the basic tasks to complete once you've decided to list:
Clean. A thorough cleaning not only helps you present your home in its best light, it also helps you assess its condition. Thoroughly wash the windows, walls, surfaces and floors; deep clean all of the carpets and polish and shine all reflective surfaces and fixtures.
Clear the clutter. Throw away items that are broken or beyond repair and donate items that are still usable, but no longer useful to you. Not only will clearing the clutter make the moving process easier, it'll also make it easier for potential buyers to see the great features of your home.
