Preparing for a Showing

Preparing for a showing


There is some preparation for your showing that will set you up for a more successful showing.  Here are a few tips:


  • Open all the shades and curtains to let in light.
  • Turn on enough lights so the home is well-lit.  Yes, even in the middle of the day.
  • Remove clutter from tables and bookshelves.  Neatness makes rooms seem larger.
  •  Remove pets.  Take them with your or keep them penned in the yard or garage.
  • Put away items in the yard such as garden tools, bicycles and toys.
  • Turn on gas fireplaces to create a cozy atmosphere.
  • Grind up part of a lemon in the disposal to add a fresh smell to the kitchen.
  • Turn on soft music on your home sound system to create a relaxed, pleasant atmosphere.

Remember, you only have one chance to make a first impression.
