Getting your home ready to show in less than 10 minutes! Sometimes friends or family will call and say, we’re on the way, we’ll be there in 10 minutes! Some of us are not always prepared. (That’s me!) When your home is on the market and you’re selling it, sometimes we get a call, that someone is in the neighborhood or an out of town buyer wants to see your home on short notice. There are a few things you can do to get ready really quick. Grab a laundry basket or unused tote and go around the house and gather things that don’t belong in that space. Wipe down all surfaces with a damp cloth or wipe. Put dirty dishes in the dishwasher. If you don’t have a dishwasher or the dishwasher is full and hasn’t yet been emptied, put your dishes in the oven. Remember, this is temporary and getting ready really quick. Most buyers won’t be opening the oven to check it out on an initial visit. Next, spray an odor neutralizer throughout the house. If it smells clean, it usually feels clean to a buyer. Selling a home and keeping it ready for showings at all times can be stressful. We hope this helps!
