Once a seller’s house is staged, the homeowner will need to maintain its pristine condition.  Remember, the way we all live in a home is different than the way we need to market and sell our homes.  Just a few tips to prepare for a showing:

·         Open all drapes, blinds.

·         Turn on all lamps; agents will turn main lights on.

·         Make sure all beds are made.

·         Trash receptacles should be emptied in kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms.

·         Clean bathrooms and ensure toilet lids are in the closed position.

·         Consider putting fresh flowers or fruit in a few areas:  foyer, kitchen, powder room, master bath.

Being prepared before showings will contribute to securing the equity in your house!
