Preparing Your Home

Follow these quick tips to prepare your home for its best showing when you have no more than 30 minutes notice before potential buyers arrive:

Start where the potential buyers will start:

  • Make sure that the front door presents well. Sweep steps, if needed.
  • Pick up any out-of-place objects and store them away quickly.

Head inside:

  • Open window treatments and turn on lights.
  • Put any dirty dishes into the dishwasher.
  • Make the beds.
  • Put any dirty laundry in a hamper or in the washing machine.

If you still have time:

  • Run a quick vacuum and/or sweeper to give carpets and floors a fresh look.
  • Wipe down counters and tabletops.
  • Warm some vanilla (just a tiny bit) on the stove to give the house a welcoming scent.

(Don’t forget to turn the stove off after the vanilla has warmed.)

While we would all like our houses in showroom condition 24 hours a day, we know that we live in them. Do your best to present your house in its best light. Make sure that every potential buyer has an opportunity to view your Boulder real estate for sale—accommodate all showings possible.
