Showing Your Home

The following is a quick checklist to prepare your home for a showing when it is on the market:

  • Short notice is possible.
  • Pick up/clean up all clutter.
  • Open the drapes and blinds.
  • Turn on lights.
  • Put all animals outside.
  • Home should be cool in summer/warm in winter.
  • Play light music if possible.
  • Place fresh bouquets of flowers around.
  • Stay out of the way (leave the property).
  • Do not speak to potential purchasers.
  • If you do see prospective buyers, do not tell them everything about the home, allow them to discover the home themselves.
