Preparing Your Home to Sell – Part 2 (of 3)

When showing your house, don’t just show it – show it off!  You don’t get a second chance to make a good first impression.


  • Walls clean and unmarked, preferably freshly painted with neutral colors
  • Windows clean inside and out
  • All light fixtures working and fresh bulbs in each
  • Plumbing in good repair
  • No cooking, smoking, pet or other objectionable odors
  • Sinks and tubs stain-free; faucets in good repair
  • Caulking in tubs and showers in good repair
  • Kitchen and baths sparkling clean; no clutter on counter-tops
  • All clutter removed from closets, attic, basement, garage and other storage areas
  • Ask your Realtor® what should be boxed up to give your home a more spacious look.

Don’t try to sell it on your own – a Realtor can help you with these preparation tips & can guide you in your home’s sale.
