Here are some tips to help prepare your home for a sale…


  • Mow and trim the lawn and shrubs.  

  • Plant flowers for color. 

  • Clean the windows and the exterior of your home.

  • Get rid of any debris that doesn’t belong in the yard.


  •  Pack any unnecessary items and get rid of your collectibles. It’s your stuff, but it’s clutter to a buyer. 

  • Clean the inside of the home completely. Shampoo the carpets, remove any stains, paint if necessary.

  • Organize and clean closets. Buyers will take a peak into them. 

  • Make sure little things like cabinets doors, handles, screens are fixed and not hanging.

  • Removed the clutter on the kitchen counters and pickup everything off the floor. Don’t forget pet supplies like litter boxes should be removed before showing.

  • Get a professional inspection which will give you the time to fix anything that a buyer may find and then may want to reduce their offer. This gives them a solid peace of mind that there are no hidden surprises.
