Seller Tips

Clean Everything

  • Everything from floors to windows must be spotless. Remember to clean the oven and other major appliances. Skylights should be crystal-clear, too. Do not forget to make bathrooms shine!
  • Kill the offensive odors. They're the first thing buyers notice, and often a permanent turnoff.

Remove the Clutter

  • Put away small kitchen appliances and other items that are sitting on countertops and tables.
  • Remove photographs from table-tops.
  • Organize the closets.
  • If there's not a reason to leave something sitting around--remove it!

Outside Tasks

  • Buyers nearly always comment if gutters are full of leaves and it makes them question other maintenance issues.
  • Store or organize items that make the yard look messy.
  • Make your front entry inviting. Decorate it, paint the door or buy a new door. It's the first look a buyer has when he steps up to enter.
