Cleanliness is More Important Than Decor

Clean like you’ve never cleaned your home before! Over 50% of home buyers rank a clean house more important than any other decor factor. Your home should look and smell shiny clean. A clean home indicates a well-maintained home. On your to-do list:


▪  Clean carpets and windows - hire a professional, if you are uncertain of  how to do a good job


▪  Scrub (not just mop) floors


▪  Clean trim along the edge of the floors


▪ Clean or dust blinds, light fixtures (make sure there are no dead bugs inside!), baseboards, vents, & fans


▪  Clean the inside and outside of cabinets and drawers, including handles


▪  Dust, dust, dust, including the tops of tall cabinets


▪ Clean the inside and outside of all appliances, tidy up inside your refrigerator - they will definitely be opening that door


▪ Scrub bathroom fixtures thoroughly


▪ Wipe down faucets, sinks and mirrors


▪  Repair all plumbing leaks, including faucets and drain traps


▪ Wipe down the inside and outside of all doors and door handles


▪ Ask your family & friends, and your real estate agent what they think needs to be done to prepare your home for sale - they may point out things you would never have thought of or noticed
