15 Minutes Before A Viewing

When preparing your house for a viewing, you’re obviously going to make sure it’s clean and tidy. After all, you want to make the best impression possible on potential buyers. But in the minutes before the buyers are due to arrive, there are a few final touches you need to do in your house to ensure it looks its best.

Put away coats, hats and shoes.

Focus around the foyer. You don’t want clutter to be the first thing a buyer sees.

Turn on all lights and lamps.

Don’t forget darker areas like nooks and corners. A house that is bright looks more roomy.

Organize your storage space.

Make sure bikes, boxes, and other items are neatly stowed. Think of your storage space as another room.

Put on some soft music.

Choose something that will appeal to most people. Easy listening and classical music work best.

Make sure the toilet lids are down.

Even when a washroom is sparkling clean, a raised toilet seat gives the impression – however incorrectly – that things are less than hygienic.

Open all curtains and blinds.

This makes rooms look bigger and brighter, even at night.

It only takes a few minutes to do these few final touches, and your home will show better as a result. Need more ideas? Call today! 757-249-1400
