Location, location, location remains to be popular real estate mantra. But even in the best neighborhoods, realtors won’t be able to sell properties if they are dirty and unkempt.
The best way to spruce up a home is to clean it thoroughly. Here are a few realtor house cleaning tips to produce sparkling properties that entice potential buyers.
A Place for Everything
To start, realtors should declutter all the rooms in the property.
Potential buyers often see clutter as dirt, which doesn’t give a good impression. Simply remove extraneous items from counters and put unnecessary items away in cabinets. Besides appearing cleaner, decluttered rooms will appear larger and more inviting. This is definitely a case where less is more.
Spic and Span
Next, it’s time to start the cleaning process.
Kitchens and bathrooms are key areas for homebuyers, so it makes sense to start there. Focus on countertops, appliance surfaces, and floors. Bringing in a professional cleaning service to handle the tile and grout can save realtors time and ultimately money.
Having a professional commercial cleaning company come in to do a major cleanup will make it easier to stay on top of the daily or weekly cleaning. Getting ready for a showing or open house will take minutes instead of hours.
Entryways, as well as living, dining and family rooms will get the most bang for their buck when they feature freshly cleaned carpets and newly painted, neutral walls. Light fixtures and woodwork should be polished and sparkling.
In addition, realtors can freshen up those rooms by bringing in a company to clean the upholstery and drapes. If pets have been living at the property, professional cleaning can remove all traces of them in terms of spots and odors.
Bedroom carpets can also benefit from thorough carpet cleaning and deodorizing. And mattresses can and should be cleaning as well. These realtor house cleaning tips are easy to follow and won't take much time.
