Your agent just called and you have a potential buyer stopping by your house in an hour. Actually, scratch that, 10 minutes!
While we’d love to always have plenty of time to get our house ready, sometimes that’s not always the case. Being flexible when it comes to showing your house will help increase the number of showings you have, which in turn, can increase the likelihood your home will sell. This means being able to show your home at a moment’s notice can come in handy.
So, no matter how much time you have, we’ve got you covered. We’ve pulled together the best tips and tricks to getting your home show ready in a matter of minutes. Applying these tips and tricks can make a huge difference to buyers when they come to see your home.
When it comes to showing your home, it’s all about setting the stage for your potential buyers and making sure that they walk into a warm and welcoming home they can envision themselves living in.
Fun Fact: The tips on this checklist can come in handy when you’re getting your home ready for guests as well!
Worried about what not to do when showing your home? Check out some unexpected turn offs from one of our previous blog posts! We’ve also found that implementing our showing checklist after completing our Spring Cleaning Checklist (even if it’s not spring) can make an even larger difference when selling your home. In our Spring Cleaning Checklist, we highlight items that are important to focus on if you plan on selling your home versus items that are important for general home maintenance.
At The WalkerLieb Group, we always offer the option of a complimentary consultation appointment if you choose to list your home with us. During this appointment, we walk through your home and provide you with personalized suggestions for getting your home show ready. This can include everything from small suggestions about lighting and minor house maintenance to larger suggestions such as rearranging or adding/removing furniture.
