Clear the Clutter

As Realtors, we know that potential buyers want to envision a space as their own; seeing other peoples mail on the counter, jackets hung on coat racks and shoes lined up in the foyer can be deal-breakers. Make sure your clients know that, too. Have them go through the home and:

  • Arrange bookshelves neatly
  • Close dresser drawers and closet doors (unless its a walk-in; then leave it wide open)
  • Pick up yard debris and tuck away the trash cans

Removing personal effects wherever possible lets buyers use their imaginations, so if your clients make a special effort to take down family photos, eclectic dcor and all of the things that give their home a lived-in look, theyll likely see better results.

A Clean Home is a Happy Home

Naturally, your clients will keep the house clean when they know potential buyers are coming. Dont let them overlook these sale-killers, though:

  • Shower doors and bathroom walls (scour and scrub!)
  • Gender-specific room dcor
  • Hardware holes that take just minutes to repair
