Cleaning to Sell Your Home
If you are in the process of trying to get your house up for sell then there are some important things for you to do to make your house sparkle.
One of the most important:
If you have the means and the energy - put everything PERSONAL into storage. The emptier your house and less YOU, the more people can see what they can do with your space. If you have extra money floating around then hire someone to stage your house. This will put your house at it's very best.
Clean/paint all of the baseboards. This gives your spaces an immediate face lift. You will be surprised at how different your home looks.
Wash all of your doors and walls. If you have flat paint - PAINT IT. You won't be able to wash your flat paint. It will streak up and look horrible. (I speak from experience). Repainting is absolutely necessary when you have flat paint.
Washing your entry way and your front door and trim. This makes a huge impact on First Impressions for potential buyers.
Clear off all of your flat surfaces and shine them up. Having clutter free flat surfaces will make your house more appealing and also makes it easier to keep it clean. Polishing them with your favorite furniture polish makes your home sparkle. When your house is clean and sparkley - it gives the impression that you maintain your home, very well.
Keep your floors vacuumed and polished and free of debris and clutter. If you make it easy to walk in your spaces it opens up the rooms and makes everything feel bigger.
Last, get your bathrooms shiny and your kitchens immaculate. Tubs need to be cleaned, along with showers and shower doors. Counter tops should be clear and empty. Inside cabinets should be organized and neat. Toilets should be cleaned inside and out.
Whatever your reason for getting your home in tip top shape - it doesn't have to be hard or take a lot of time - if you keep routine pick up on your home. Purchase a room freshener for your home This will also make it inviting - as long you have a "clean" smelling frarance and not a strong, cloying one. That can be a real deal breaker.
Make it a great one!
