Best show tips!
  • Remove pets. Take them with you or keep them penned in the yard or garage.

  • Open shades and curtains to let in light.

  • Turn on enough lights so the home is well lit.

  • Remove clutter from tables and bookshelves. Neatness makes rooms seem larger.

  • Put away items in the yard like garden tools, bicycles and toys.

  • Grind up part of a lemon in the disposal to add a fresh smell to the kitchen.

  • Perhaps play some soothing classical music on low volume.

  • Keep money and other valuables, as well as prescription drugs, out of sight.

  • Tidy up rooms, including kitchen, living room, bedrooms, and bathrooms.

  • Donít pack closets in an attempt to clean up--this only communicates a lack of space.

  • Children should not be running around, distracting buyers from the showing.

  • If possible, take the entire family out; this will give the prospective buyers freedom to move comfortably about the home and ask their agent candid questions.

  • Comfortable temperature, No television

  • Remove an abundance of personal photographs

  • Bake cookies or other goodies which helps make the house seem more of a home 

  • Pay attention to pet or cigarette odors.  Place scented potpourri around the house.

  • On the day youíre expecting a potential buyer, pop a batch of frozen cinnamon rolls or homemade bread into the oven for a great aroma
