Here are 4 simple tips to help when the weather is warmer & you have a showing set up on the house you are selling.
- Keep it cool: Keeping the house at a comfortable temperature will keep the potential buyers there longer. We suggest around setting it at 72. This is a nice average temperature that will make most people comfortable.
- Smells are not your friend: Warmer weather intensify even moderate smells. If you have pets, remove them for the showing. Remove the cat’s letter box & dogs beds. Spray their area with a solution like Febreze to freshen the area. For basements, keep your dehumidifier running to keep it dry. If you still have a slight musty smell wipe down surfaces with a lite bleach solution.
- Nice look lawn: Try to keep the yard as green as possible. If your have local water usage restrictions water when you can. Back yards are as important as the front so keep it clean and tidy.
- Windows & Doors: During the summer screens get clogged with pollen and other plant matter. Make sure to wipe them down to remove all the bits. A can of dusting air also works like a charm. Clean the windows inside & out to make them sparkle.
Good Luck with the sale of your house. Warm weather or cold there are buyers out there for it. Keep these simple tips in mind during the warmer days & it will show wonderfully.
