What’s the most important thing to consider when selling your home? Believe it or not, the most important thing to consider when it comes to selling your home is actually something pretty simple: . Cleanliness Having a thoroughly-cleaned home has been ranked as the single most effective way of making your home appeal to buyers. Cleanliness is considered by buyers to be more important than decor, odors, furnishings, and even architecture. It’s also one of the quickest and cheapest methods you can use to add value. You might be wondering what exactly is it about cleaning that makes it so important to the process of selling my home? To answer this question, try to put yourself in the buyer’s shoes. If you were buying a home, one of the most important aspects of a showing would be the ability to visualize yourself living comfortably in that property and making it home. To help a prospective buyer to do this, you need to present them with a blank canvas. They need to be able to see their own personal touch, possessions, furniture, and their desired lifestyle fitting into this blank canvas you’ve created. Ultimately, what this all boils down to is that your home needs to be clutter-free, distraction-free, thoroughly clean, and ready for the buyer to move right in. In addition to this, a sparkling clean home gives the right first impression to the buyer. It not only shows that your home is well-cared for, it demonstrates that it’s a home you loved and that it’s been properly maintained. But this seems like such a big task. How do I make this cleanliness thing happen? • First, you need to de-clutter all the rooms in your house, including all flat surfaces, walls, worktops, and storage spaces. Pack away anything you wanna keep but don’t absolutely need out on display. Give away or sell items you no longer need. This process will make your home appear cleaner and will give the buyer an impression of having more space. • Then you need to make sure the property itself is as clean as possible. Scrub your house from top to bottom. Everything should sparkle and smell fresh and clean. Clean those carpets, dust off the light fixtures, door jams, windowsills, clean the glass, including the mirrors and the windows, and make sure the showers look new again. We have some tips for this if you need ’em. • Once it’s all clean, if possible before leaving for the day or before leaving for a showing, quickly pick up any additional clutter that’s accumulated, perhaps placing it in an attractive basket or one you can cover and quickly tuck in the bottom of a closet.
