Spring is just around the corner, and if we have put together some tips on preparing homes for sale in Vanderhoof during this very busy time of year in real estate.
Clearing counter space
Many people tend to stay in during the winter months, and may not clean as much as they would in busier times of the year. Because of this, your counter spaces on the kitchen and bathroom can sometimes become cluttered. Make sure to clear some of that clutter and re-organize your counters. Potential buyers will want to see how much counter space they have.
Wash those windows
Not everyone washes their windows regularly, but this is an important task when showing off your home, as viewers will want to see the view inside and out of each window clearly. So make sure you wash the inside of all of your windows, and then do a thorough cleaning of the outside of the windows, to get all that dirt and grime from the fall and winter off of them.
Make sure you dust all of the surfaces of your home. We’re not just talking about the usual surfaces that only your eyes can see. You need to make sure you dust harder to reach places like the top of the kitchen cabinets, fridge, ceiling fans, etc. You don’t want your house smelling musty when people are there to view your home.
Wash hard floor surfaces
The winter months bring a lot of water and mud into people’s homes, and this can get tracked everywhere, especially if you have pets. Make sure after vacuuming or sweeping, that you give all hard flooring a very thorough wash, so that they look their best.
Getting rid of odors
Speaking of pets, cat litter boxes and some dogs can give out a bit of a bad odor. You may not notice it because you leave in the home and have gotten used to the smell, but people entering your home for the first time will be sure to notice the smell. Make sure you vacuum all couch and bedding, open the windows to get some fresh air inside, and then light some scented candles to cover up that smell.
