¨ Everything from floors to windows must be spotless. Remember to clean the oven and other major appliances. Skylights should be crystal-clear, too. Do not forget to make bathrooms shine!
¨ Kill the offensive odors. They're the first thing buyers notice, and often a permanent turnoff.
Remove the Clutter
¨ Put away small kitchen appliances and other items that are sitting on countertops and tables.
¨ Remove photographs from table-tops.
¨ Organize the closets.
¨ If there's not a reason to leave something sitting around--remove it!
¨ Buyers nearly always comment if gutters are full of leaves and it makes them question other maintenance issues.
¨ Store or organize items that make the yard look messy.
¨ Make your front entry inviting. Decorate it, paint the door or buy a new door. It's the first look a buyer has when he steps up to enter.
