When it comes to selling your home, there’s one crucial thing you should do, that surprisingly some sellers don’t make time for – cleaning!
While not the most glamorous or fun task, every hour you spend cleaning can pay off in the long run.
Buyers want to see a home that looks fresh and untouched when they visit and so every corner of your home needs to be absolutely spotless if you want buyers to fall in love with it.
Before the property is on the market, give it a thorough clean both inside and out. Throw away old clutter and pack away things that you’re not likely to need for the duration of the sale. If you have a lot of stuff it could be worth keeping it in storage for the duration of the sale.
By preparing your home early it will not only look great, but also you’ll be one step ahead of packing when it comes time to move.
Once you’re home is clean it will be ready for its first inspections, but if your property remains on the market you’ll have to put some effort in to keep it clean.
A few tips to keep your property clean while selling include:
- Make beds every morning – Make sure that everyone living in the house helps make the effort to keep it clean and make beds each morning.
- Wipe counters daily – Pay attention to kitchens, bathrooms and other rooms that are being used regularly because these areas have a habit of looking dirty very quickly.
- Close off rooms that aren’t used regularly – The less rooms and areas of the home you use, the less you’ll have to try and keep clean.
- Pack things away right after use – Make a habit of putting things away after you use them so there isn’t a big build-up of things to do when buyers come knocking.
