Preparing Your Home For Sale ... Keep Up the Good Work

So far we have completed General Cleaning, made sure Lights are lighting up, Windows are shined, and Bathrooms are polished. Let's move on to the Kitchen and Utility Room today.

Kitchen Comments:
- Keep all surfaces cleared off as much as possible. The countertops should have very little on them to show that there is plenty of available workspace. Keep appliances stored when not in use.
-Go over the kitchen as if you were a health inspector. Clean the oven, range, (replace drip pans) and don't forget to clean the seal of the dishwasher.
-Remove all magnets, notes, pictures, etc. from front and sides of refrigerator.
-Stow trashcan in Pantry.

Pantry/Closet Comments:
- Thin all closets dramatically and organize remaining items neatly on shelves. Be sure to allow space between hanging items. At one very visible spot, leave space, so the rear wall of the closet/pantry will show when the door is opened. Leave a small empty space on each shelf to show potential storage space.

Utility Room Comments:
-Organize shelves and put away non-cleanser items.
-Keep area clear of clothes (folded and put away) and clear all clutter.

Well keep busy my followers next time we will tackle the Bedroom and Living Rooms.
