If youíre in the process of selling your home, your agent will most likely be making calls to you relating that she will be showing your home to potential buyers. While youíre probably excited to sell your home, thereís no doubt that home showings can happen at the worst possible times! Hereís some tips to help you prepare for any home showing in a hurry: 


Mop Up


Sweep up your kitchen and bathrooms Spot clean in any necessary areas to remove stains.   


Get Out Your Duster


Quickly wipe down any of your furniture, televisions, screens and other objects that really show dust in your home. You donít need to go crazy, just make sure that everything is clean.  


Clear Counters


Donít leave tons of stuff hanging around on your counters. Your counters should be wiped down and clear of clutter for your home showing. 


Make Your Bed


Heed your motherís advice and make your bed. Thereís nothing more unattractive at a home showing than beds that havenít been made or items strewn across the bedroom. If you have some time, take a look at your bedding and see if it looks presentable, as in free from rips and stains. If not, consider replacing the existing bedding for an even better impression. 


Vacuum 


Give your carpets a once over with the vacuum cleaner. This will pick up any surface dirt and make the carpets look, smell and feel fresher.


Empty The Trash


Empty all of your trash cans. Spray them down with a disinfectant spray so that thereís no lingering odors.   


Brighten It Up


When your home is being shown, the lights should be on. A bright home is an attractive home! 

Clean Your Dishes


Put all of your dirty dishes in the dishwasher. There shouldnít be any dirty dishes left out and around during a home showing. Also, you donít want any of your appliances running while potential buyers are visiting.  


Put Clothes Away


Your clothes should be loaded into the washer and dryer as well. No dirty (or clean) clothes should be lingering around the house. Potential buyers donít need to see the latest styles that youíre wearing!


Put Your Stuff Away 


Every room should be given a once over. Everything should be off of the floors, counters and furniture. This will make your home look very presentable and attractive to buyers. 


Although a home showing may seem overwhelming, buyers like to picture what your home will look like once theyíre the new occupants. The short amount of time that you spend on making your home look tidy can make a big difference in finding the right buyer for your property.
