There’s a great saying that goes something like this, “It’s the little things in life that make you happy”. Things like sunsets and sunrises, breakfast in bed, laughing, homemade cookies, and the campfires under the stars. These are the small things in life that can make an ordinary day a good day. So what things can make your showing a “good” showing?
When you list your house in hopes of finding the right buyer, what are the little things that can help make that client stop and say “This is it!” Well here are a few ideas.
1: Wash windows and window seals. – If you can’t look out to see the view, even if it’s just the yard, the buyer will lose interest right off of the bat. Open your shades and blinds to show them off.
2:Make sure all of the light bulbs are working. If you’re too lazy to change a light bulb, what other issues are you neglecting.
3: Clean your ceiling fans. No one likes to look up at a dusty and dirty fan. Do you sweep the dirt under the rug as well?
4: If you have a handy husband, or you’re handy yourself, check the floor trim. If there are gaps, get the caulk gun out and get them filled. Purchase a painter’s caulk that cleans up with water.
5: Light a candle or bake some cookies before your showing. There’s nothing more heartwarming to walk into a house that makes you feel at home.
These are just a few ideas other than the normal items such as clean your house, make the beds, and mow the yard. Sometimes it’s the little things that matter.
