There are 3 Things Sellers Should Do Before Listing – #1 is Cleaning!
Cleaning might seem very straightforward, but it is extremely important to have your property deep cleaned prior to listing your home. This is something we recommend 100% of the time and by doing so, we are not saying your home is a mess. When we are talking about deep cleaning, we are suggesting you have cleaners go over every inch of your home, including blinds, windows, inside of kitchen appliances, and all of the light fixtures. If your property has carpet, we also recommend having it steam cleaned prior to selling.
If buyers walk into a home and notice anything that isn’t clean, it does change their perception of the property. An unclean home is often perceived as needing work. Every buyer will have their own idea of clean so it is best to have professionals help with this process. We have professional cleaners we work with often and in fact, we typically will cover the general deep cleaning for our sellers prior to listing.
