Preparing Your Home for Sale

Are you preparing your home for sale? After my last post you should have aired out your home (keep it up), cleaned the carpets, oiled wood furniture, doors and cabinets, replaced your A/C filters. That was just the Gereral ongoing list.

Now let's visit about the Interior of your home. Light fixtures need to be the highest levey of watage that safety will allow. Be sure to dust and wash all fixtures and fans because everything is going to show when you add that extra light.

Other interior tasks to keep in mind: Dust blinds, windowsills, and plant ledges.
Remove any cobwebs inside and outside those windows. Remove the window screens and clean them, then clean interior and exterior of all windows and glass doors. I have a black lab and the glass doors are a constant issue of needing to be cleaned! When your home is on the market keep in mind to pull up blinds or shades and open the draperies to allow maximum light into the rooms.

Ok let's get these chores done and then I'll give you more... Be sure to call me!

Preparing Your Home For Sale

What more could you want than to get your home ready for top dollar in short order? This will begin a series of Preparing Your Home For Sale. If you use the suggestions you'll be on your way to a successful sale!

Let's start with General Clean Up:

1. Start by airing out the home. Most people are turned off by even the smallest odor. Odors must be eliminated, especially if you have dogs, cats, or young children in diapers, or if you are a smoker.

2. Clean Carpets - now is the time. Bare floors should be waxed or polished as well.

3. Clean and wipe down all stained woodwork including doors and cabinets with a wood maintenance product such as "Old English", or "Liquid Gold."

4. Replace or clean A/C filters. Clean all A/C vents and intake grids.

5.Use an air freshener in each room (try to avoid floral scents as they can be too strong).
