We are getting ready to list our house for sale, but I’m concerned about what to do when the house is being shown?

Plan to take your family (and your pets if possible) away during showings. It can be uncomfortable for you and potential buyers if you’re there, which could result in a “no sale” for you.

Lock-up, or put in a safe-deposit box, any valuables (jewelry, cash, private financial information), while you are away from the house.

Before the house is shown, make sure the home is clean and neat. Open all the blinds and shades, and turn on lights if you have dark rooms or corners. Make sure the kitchen and counters are sparkling clean and all dishes are put away.

Store children’s toys in organized boxes and keep big items like bicycles, wagons, skateboards, basketball hoops put away. Keep the house as clean as possible and remove all clutter. If need be, box up any clutter and store it off-site.

If you are buying or selling a home and need competent and caring representation, please call me at 816-875-1661.
