I just came across some great information from my local MLS geared towards helping sellers get their homes SOLD during the fall season.
Home sellers looking to attract buyers at an open house this fall would do well to break out their cleaning supplies and make their home shine, according to Bankrate.com.
Homebuyers will not likely be tempted by a piece of real estate that looks too lived in, but keeping a house clean while still living in it can be difficult. To begin, sellers can rally the troops and thoroughly clean their space. This should include windows, floors, counters, walls, woodwork and the all-important bathroom.
If there is enough money in the budget for it, individuals may even want to hire a cleaning company that will get the job done right with professional tools and cleaners, the source suggests.
Once a home is freshly cleaned, homeowners and their families should take steps to ensure that it remains that way. Real Simple recommends taking a few minutes each day to make sure a home stays sparkling clean. Keep kitchen sinks empty, wipe down bathroom fixtures and make the bed everyday.
These simple steps will guarantee a home remains looking its best when the weekend rolls around and open house guests begin to arrive, the source explains
