After you have put in the time and expense to stage your home and maximize your opportunities for a quick sell, don’t drop the ball! While your home is on the market and being visited by buyers on a daily basis, practice these five quick tips every day to maintain your home in “ready to show” staged mode:
1. Make up the beds.
2. Open blinds and curtains to ensure your home is flooded with natural light, and create a bright, open airy feeling.
3. Do a quick “swipe” wipe down of your bathroom sinks and fixtures with a soft, absorbent cloth to dry them and prevent water spots, and neatly fold and hang towels.
4. Either wash any dirty dishes, or place them in the dishwasher so that your kitchen sink area is clean.
5. Empty your trash regularly, especially in the kitchen where food odors may develop.
