Preparing Your Home!


Create Curb Appeal

· Cut the lawn every week during the marketing period.

· Edge the lawn up the driveway and along the sidewalks (both front and back) for a finished appearance.

· Clear walk and driveway of leaves/snow.

· Trim all shrubbery and remove low-lying tree limbs.

· Fertilize your lawn to make grass look lush and green.

· Replace downed shutters, gutters, downspouts. Remove debris from gutters and downspouts.

· Paint any trim that is blistering.

· Repaint or re-stain the front door to create a pleasant first impression.



Inside Your Home


· Paint only rooms that look fingerprinted, worn or faded. Touch up chipped paint, and repair cracked sheet rock or plaster.

· Have the carpets and draperies cleaned.

· Clean and repair windows and screens. Clean all appliances/mechanicals.

· Repair any leaking toilets and faucets.

· Replace burned out lights.

· Replace old caulking around the bathtubs. This can be done with a tube of new caulking and a putty knife.

· Spray lubricant on all squeaking doors, windows, closets and cabinets.

· Tighten doorknobs and drawer handles.

· Store out-of-season clothing so the closets do not have a cluttered look.

· Remove items from the floor of walk-in closets so that prospects can have easy access.

· Stack all items in the basement and garage against the walls to show maximum space.

· Clear stairs and halls.

· Vacuum the garage, basement, rafters and all floors.

· If there are too many appliances on the kitchen counter, put some away to expose maximum counter space.

· Pre-pack items that may clutter your home. Extra toys in the children’s room and knick-knacks may actually make rooms appear smaller than they are. Store excess furniture.

· Clean your home from top to bottom. I have professional cleaning service that can do this for you.
