Putting Your Home on the Market?

November 17, 2017

So you’re ready to put your home on the market. We don’t have to tell you how much work it is to get your home ready to sell. From making the minor repairs to home cleaning to decluttering and staging, it’s a whole lot of work.

One thing you can do to help lighten the load when you get ready to put the “for sale” sign in the yard is to hire a professional home cleaning service to add sparkle and shine. Prospective buyers look for a lot of things when they are shopping for a home, but cleanliness is the one thing that makes an immediate impression when they open your door for the first time. It will be hard for buyers to imagine themselves in your home if they notice the dust bunnies hanging from your light fixtures.

Since you’ve likely been in the home for awhile, it’s easy to miss some of the things buyers will notice right away. “Clean enough” is never the right attitude when preparing for the important undertaking of selling your home and they are a few critical times when you’ll want to be sure everything is in tip-top shape:

Before Putting Your Home on the Market

You can expect a professional home inspector to enter your home before or during the selling process. Consider a Grace Home Cleaning in Omaha as an essential precursor to this activity. While there are many things an inspector may just ask you to replace, some can be brought up to snuff by merely giving them a heavy-duty cleaning.

Before a Showing or You Host an Open House

As we mentioned, first impressions matter! You’ll want to be sure your home is ready for showing by letting a professional home cleaning company like Grace Home Cleaning provide an objective look at every surface your home. It has to go a lot farther than just de-cluttering. We are talking about wiping down woodwork, dusting light fixtures, descaling lime build-up around sinks, super-cleaning tubs and showers and cleaning appliances inside and out.

When You Move Out

When your home does sell, that doesn’t mean your obligation to keep it clean ends. Not only does the physical nature of moving out create smudges, ground-in dirt, and other noticeable cleaning needs, but you’ll also be surprised to find a lot of hidden areas of dirt and grime that weren’t so noticeable when your home was full of furniture and belongings. You’ll need to leave behind a clean house for the new buyers, and with the limited time you might have during the moving time, it makes a lot of sense to bring in Grace Home Cleaning in Omaha to make sure you have covered all of the cleaning essentials before you hand over the keys.
