Before you put your home up for sale, you'll want to ensure it's clean for all of the buyers that will come through. A dirty house isn't appealing, and you won't get a good offer, if you get one at all, if your home isn't in tip-top shape. Cleaning your home doesn't have to be overwhelming, below we've listed the top things to remember to clean for each room.
+ Clean the door and hardware. + Wipe off all fingerprints on windows/furniture. + Clean off scuff marks on floors and door. + Replace all light bulbs and ensure light fixtures are working. + Tidy/clean up the coat closet. People WILL look in there to see the size.
+ Wipe down all cabinets. + Clean all appliances, inside and out. + Clean stove hood, on top and bottom. + Clean behind the refrigerator, on top and bottom too. + Ensure the microwave is clean of food splatter. + Clean the space behind the sink. + Wipe down blinds/shades. + Wash any kitchen rugs, clean the floors and baseboards. + Store all of your pet food/food out of sight.
+ Clean behind the toilet and under the sink. + Only display absolute necessities, declutter. + Organize and clean under the vanity. + Scrub floors and clean grout lines. + Keep dirty clothes and towels off the floor. + Be sure to lock away any medication. + Clean the fan and make sure it's functioning. + Replace any dead lightbulbs.
+ Wash sheets, comforters, and blankets. + Clean the curtains and rugs. + Dust furniture. + Remove any obvious stains from fabrics. + Keep closets clean and organized. + Store away dirty clothes and personal photos. + Clean marks on walls.
These are just the basics you don't want to forget about. If it's within your budget, we highly recommend hiring a professional cleaner to ensure your home is in its best condition. Contact your agent to get a great local recommendation.

"Art Wilkerson stood by us throughout a difficult sale. The buyer’s lender kept demanding more documentation right before three different closing dates. He also was instrumental in resolving wind damage that occurred during the delays caused by the moving closing dates. His experience in home repairs and refurbishing was crucial to the sale. Art is an honorable man above all. When my buyer came to me, Art insisted on finding another agent to represent the buyer. Be assured that Art will see your house sold, doing his utmost and whatever it takes. Without any doubt I highly recommend him."
