Tips For Preparing Your Home For Viewings

First impressions  are so important when selling a home.  Making potentional buyers picture themselves in your home is critical.  Experience has taught us the following:

  • Clear all clutter from floors to countertops (this makes rooms appear larger)
  • Tidy children’s room
  • Touch up with paint any rooms that require it, including your front door
  • Open all curtains and blinds
  • Replace any burned out light bulbs
  • Wash and put away any dirty dishes
  • Put fresh towels in the bathroom
  • Air fresheners can have a very strong scent affecting some buyers, it is best NOT to put them out
  • Do not leave candles burning
  • Clean out any litter boxes
  • Put pets in cages or if possible take them to a neighbour
  • Do Seasonal clean up
  • Leaving your home during viewings allows your Realtor to deal with prospective buyers in a professional manner
