Outside your home, mow the bushes, remove dead tree branches, and get rid of the futile furniture you don’t think is saleable.
Clean the front gate and lintels, or paint them if necessary. It should shine.
Check for leaks throughout the house. A drip may not seem important, but it could suggest poor maintenance elsewhere in the house. Don’t leave room for doubt in a buyer’s mind.
Clean out closets and storage areas. Donate old clothes and furniture to needy. This will create a greater space in the home.
Get the carpets professionally cleaned. It will be important to know if the carpet will remain for the new owners too.
Make sure the electrical works throughout the house. Prospective home buyers will check this. Fix any switches that need replacement.
Caulk around tubs and sinks. New caulk looks better than old caulk, and you’ll also prevent those tricky leaks.
Replace light bulbs that don’t work and use as much wattage as the fixture will take. Good illumination makes your home seem light and airy.
Tour the property from the perspective of a first-time visitor. If there is anything that may seem uncomfortable to visitors, fix it before the potential buyer visits.
Clean out medicine cabinets. Remove out-of-date items, and consider removing prescription pills when buyers visit. Buyers might look in every nook and open every door.
If you have a pet, make arrangements to have it elsewhere when your home is demonstrated. Some people have allergies. No one wants to be barked or pawed at when they enter.
Ask your broker to examine the property for specific showing tips to make your home more attractive when compared to others in the area.
