How to get your home ready for a showing in ten minutes or less:
Impromptu showings are inevitable. It can happen to any seller. The showing desk calls and says an agent is in your neighborhood and has a client who wants to see your home in the next ten minutes. Say what?? You can either decline the showing request ( please don't unless you or a family member is not feeling well), or you can approve the showing and do the following easy steps to get your home show-ready in just a matter of minutes:
1) Brighten up the home. Turn on all of the lights and open the blinds and curtains.
2) Take out the garbage. Try to empty all trash cans, if possible.
3) Put dirty dishes in the dishwasher and clothes in the washer or dryer.
4) Make the bed and straighten the pillows.
5) Leave. Always leave when you have scheduled showings. It allows the buyers time to really look around and get a feel for your home.
BOOM!! Your house is ready. Hopefully, you have been maintaining the home for potential showings but when you are not prepared for a quick one, try doing the above 5 things and you will be surprised how much better your house will look.
