An easy way to get your home ready for showings and open houses is to pack up all the clutter you have and get it stored away. Anything that's sitting on a flat surface, like a countertop or table, should be packed away. Additionally, you should also put away anything you don't use frequently, give away things you don't need, throw away anything that can't be donated, and keep only what you really like and need to take with you when you move.
2) Get Your House Sparkling
It is important to have immaculate floors and sparkling windows when you're trying to sell your house. Equally important and something you should also consider, is scrubbing the grout, cleaning counters, and every surface in your home so it as clean and nice looking as possible. Cleaning is the least expensive way to make your home look great and help buyers see the potential in it. If you have a big house or aren't the most fastidious housekeeper, you may want to hire a professional. Don't scrimp on the cleaning, though. It's a very important step.
3) Half Empty Closets
Every home buyer is looking for storage, and it's almost impossible to have too much of it. Take at least half of your things out of the closets and drawers of your home, and then take the time to organize what's left in them. Buyers are going to snoop, and you don't want them to see crowded, overstuffed closets, and drawers. This can give the impression that there's not enough room in the house and/or that you have a lot of clutter. You want to give the impression that everything is neat and tidy. If buyers see that you're messy, they may think you don't take good care of your home.
