There are many things that sellers can do to help their homes present better to the public such as updating old fixtures and staging the home, but there is one simple and inexpensive thing that many sellers overlook.

The most inexpensive thing that a seller can do is to thoroughly clean his house and keep it clean the entire time that the house is on the market.  Trust me - clean sells!

Let's face it, nobody want to walk through let alone purchase somebody else's dirt.  When buyers enter a home that looks unkept and smells badly, they want to quickly look at the place and get out of there, but when buyers enter a home that looks and smells clean, they automatically want to see more of it and will take their time seriously touring it.

Since "clean" is a subjective term, let me clarify what most buyers want.  As buyers walk up to the house their assessment begins, so this means that the walk and porch should be swept and clear of clutter, no weeds in the garden beds, a front door that is freshly painted and a doorbell that isn't dirty.

As buyers enter a home they want the house to smell fresh and will look to see that hardwoods are clean, carpets have been recently vacuumed, walls and doors are free of handprints and scuff marks, light switches that are free of a sticky dirty feel, and windows that have been newly cleaned.  The kitchen and bathrooms should be neat and tidy with floors that have been recently mopped, no dishes in the sink and fresh towels on all of the towel bars.

In essence, the place has to sparkle from top to bottom each and every time that you have a showing appointment to give your house the edge over the competition.

For more information, take a look at our list of helpful tips on Preparing Your Home For Sale.

Looking forward to helping you find your next dream home,
