Cleanliness signals to a buyer that the home has been well cared for and is most likely in good repair.
LET FRESH AIR IN
Get rid of odors that may be unfamiliar or unpleasant. People are most often offended by odors from tobacco, pets, cooking, and musty or sour laundry. Fresh flowers and potpourri can be used to your advantage. Other smells that attract positive attention include fresh baked bread and cinnamon.
LET THE LIGHT IN
Turn the lights on. Raise the shades. Open the blinds. Pull back the curtains. Bright, open rooms feel larger and more inviting. Dark rooms feel small and gloomy.
There's nothing that improves the value of a home more at a lower cost than a fresh coat of paint. It's so often easier to paint a room than it is to scrub it. Neutral colors are the best!
KEEP NOISE DOWN
Silence is restful sound that offends no one. Turn off the TV and radio. Soft instrumental music is fine but avoid vocals. If necessary, close the windows to eliminate any street noise.
UNCLUTTER YOUR HOME BEFORE YOU SHOW IT
Have a garage sales. Empty closets. Throw away what you can't sell. The less "stuff" in and around a home, the roomier it will seem.
FIX ANYTHING THAT IS BROKEN
This includes plumbing, electrical systems, switches, windows, TV antennas, screens, doors, and fences; if it can't be fixed, replace it or get rid of it (no window screens are better than damaged ones).
A buyer will make a much lower offer if your house is in disrepair and will probably still insist that everything be fixed before taking occupancy. You're better off if you leave potential buyers no reason to offer less than you are asking.
SEND PETS AWAY
Send them away or secure them away from the house when prospective buyers are coming. You never know if people will be annoyed or intimidated by your pets or even allergic to them. And you never want a prospective buyer to have to avoid animal droppings.
SEND THE KIDS TO GRANDMA'S
Send them to Grandma's or take them on a walk around the block. Children can be noisy and distracting to someone interested in looking at a home.
