Showing Your Home
Real estate agents typically want the properties we market to look spotless and wonderful. However, the sellers eventually find that keeping their house in prime showing condition begins to wear thin after a few weeks for even the most impeccable housekeepers.
It is a lot of work to keep the beds perpetually made, the kitchen and bathrooms spotless and closets neat. Is it worth the effort? It is--if you want to sell your house for top dollar in a reasonable amount of time. Buyers often see normal clutter, and what registers is "this house hasn't been maintained." They see bathtub rings and think "plumber's bills." Dirt under the radiators causes them to imagine having to replace the entire heating and air conditioning system. People are often functioning more on emotion than logic when selecting a house. You can help your broker by minimizing the amount of imagination that buyers will need in order to fall in love with your home.
