Preparing for Showings – Checklist

Preparing for Showings – Checklist

Because first impressions are so important, it is essential that your home is in “show-ready” condition for each and every showing. Although it can be daunting at first, if you use this quick and easy checklist, you will have your home sparkling in no time. To make it even easier, get your family involved. Assign some of these tasks to other family members to do each morning so that you are prepared for any last minute showing.
Here is your checklist to run through before every showing:

✓ Open drapes, shades, blinds

✓ Turn on lights to make your home look bright and cheerful.

✓ Pick up shoes, toys and any other items that might be scattered around.

✓ Put any dirty dishes in the dishwasher and close it.

✓ Empty all trash.

✓ Wipe down all counter tops and tables.

✓ Make all beds.

✓ Run the vacuum.

✓ Put away all clothes.

✓ Make sure all dirty clothes are out of sight.

✓ Make sure rooms smell good, spray a deodorizer if necessary.

✓ Make sure any medications are out of sight.

✓ Turn oven on to 250 degrees. Put a small amount of vanilla extract on a piece of foil into the oven. This will simulate the smell of fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. Yummy!

✓ Turn off all televisions. You can play soft music at a low volume in the background only.

✓ Make sure all papers, mail, bills and other confidential materials are out of sight.

✓ Secure any jewelry, cash or other valuables.

✓ Adjust the temperature; make sure your home is warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
