No matter how clean a person you are, there is a difference between having a clean home and one that is show-ready. If you hope to attract a buyer, your home has to look as if a team of cleaners has come in and wiped it from top to bottom. This can be difficult to achieve with all of your other obligations. Here are some tips on keeping your house ready to show while you are still living in it.
1. Get Rid of It
Getting rid of some of your belongings has two benefits: It will declutter your home and you will have less to pack. Think of the things that you don't use, won't use or can easily replace. Sell those things to friends, family and on social media if you need to.
2. Bins, Bins and Bins
The easiest way to store your "junk" is to toss it in bins right before a showing. The bins can then be stacked in the garage or basement, leaving buyers none the wiser. This is a great option for kids' toys and pet gear. It also works for extra shoes and seasonal items.
3. Lose the Trash
When your real estate agent calls and says they have a potential buyer, you will go through the house in a mad scramble trying to clean up. It's easy to miss all those little trash bins in the bathrooms and bedrooms so get rid of them. Hang plastic bags on the door handles and grab them as you are running around cleaning.
