Prepare For A Last Minute Showing - Real Estate Tidbit

It's Showtime....Be Prepared

It takes a lot of work and effort to prepare your home for selling. When I tell my Sellers what I'd like them to do to prepare their home to list, I often get a wide eyed stare. But it never fails, every single time, when the to do list is done, they are blown away with how amazing their property's show ready.


The reality is, you need to live in show ready condition ALWAYS when your home is listed. You can't just leave the breakfast dishes in the sink as you head out the door to work or leave the beds unmade. But we're human; and life is busy. Some days we just really don't have the time to clean up after ourselves.


But it's Murphy's law, the day you decide you don't have time to pop the breakfast dishes in the dishwasher or pick your socks up off the floor, you'll get a last minute showing request.


So what do you do when your REALTOR® calls and says the buyers are ten minutes away? This week's tidbit lists what you should focus on to get your home show ready in a real jiffy.

As always, I welcome your comments, questions and suggestions.
