open them. • Attack all appliances with cleaning fervor. Make them shine! • Scrub sinks, toilets, tubs, showers, faucets, and countertops. They must be impeccable. • All tiled areas, including grout, must be free of discoloration, stains, and mildew. • Clean the window treatments. Wash the windows so that the natural light will enhance your living space. • Vacuum rugs, shampoo carpets, and mop floors thoroughly.
Pets are wonderful, but homebuyers want to see your home without them. Domestic animals are not unique features or selling points of homes; pet dander and odor aren’t going to provide a positive viewing experience. Some prospects might have allergies, others may not like animals, and for all, they are an unnecessary distraction. Minimize the presence of pets. Dog dishes, cat litter boxes, and beds need to be clean. Pets should be relegated to cages or backyards while showing your home.
