#1 Not #4

In the article, How To Sell Your House Fast in 2020, # 4 was Deep Cleaning

"One of the best ways to prepare your home to sell quickly is also one of the most overlooked: A good deep clean! Simply making sure your home is swept, vacuumed, and dusted can make a huge difference to potential buyers."

In my opinion this should be #1!

Over the last week of showing houses to multiple buyers I have heard, "You would think the sellers would at least clean their house." Or "This house is so clean, you should see some of the other houses we have looked at."

Deep cleaning makes a difference!

Here are a few items not to forget

  • Buyers open closets, cabinets, shower curtains, etc.

  • Clean all surfaces

  • Dust, including ceiling fans

  • Wash light fixtures

  • Change HVAC filters

  • Clean carpets

  • Clean baseboards and corners

This may also be a great time to store or purge. It's a good idea to go ahead and get a storage building and box up a lot of the items you do not NEED and put them in storage.


Remember, you want the buyer to be able to picture your house as their HOME! So they need to be able to visualize their belongings, their style, their lives in your house.
