Staging your home for Showings

    • Are countertops free and clear? 
    • Have you removed unnecessary furniture throughout the house? 
    • Remove the art gallery and coupon collection from the refrigerator.

    • Are shower curtains and doors hung properly? 
    • Is the flooring clean and fresh? 
    • Are towels neatly hung? 
    • Is toilet closed?
  • Check the walls: 
    • Is paint and wallpaper fresh and clean? 
    • Are the walls free from holes? 
    • Are there any colors or objects on the walls that need to be removed? 
  • Check the floors:

    • Are hard surface floors clean and free from stains? 
  • Check windows and window coverings:

  • Pet check: 
    • Are there any signs that this is a pet's home? 
    •  Be sure to clean and remove kitty litter, pet toys and bedding. 
  • How's the aroma? 
    • Try to air out the home prior to showings. 
    • If air freshener is necessary, use well before showings as a consideration to those with allergies. 
  • Set the mood prior to showings: 
    • Open draperies and blinds. 
    • Turn on the radio to a classical music station, set the volume on low. 
    • If you have time, cook a batch of cookies to have the warm, welcoming aroma permeating the home.
