If you are selling your home right now it is probably one of the most important if not the most important thing you are doing. With the excess of homes on the market throughout the United States and the economy slowly recovering, which of course is debatable, it can be challenging getting your home sold.

No matter the time of the year you want to give special attention to the outside of your home. Make sure it is clean and easy to access by not blocking sidewalk or pathways.

Once inside you want potential homebuyers to feel welcome. If you donít want dirt tracked throughout the home, provide booties for people to wear. This is much more convenient for visitors to put on than have to take off their shoes. Provide a bench or stool for them to sit on when putting on their booties.

If the home is vacant you still want to make sure it is clean and well kept. Routinely check the bathrooms and other rooms for things that may need a bit of cleaning up.

Light a nice smelling candle in the home that sufficiently freshens the air. If you have a pet make sure that you have the home thoroughly cleaned so there arenít any pet smells. Along the same lines if you have a pet it is always better to remove them from the home completely, especially dogs. That way homebuyers can view the whole property without worrying. A lot of homeowners put their dog in the garage and they bark and bark while people are in the home. This can be distracting and make homebuyers rush through the home. Also it doesnít allow them to view the garage and appliances residing in there.

Lastly, you want to have detailed information about the home readily available. Organize a binder that contains relevant information on the home such as; year built, square footage, garage size, baths, bedrooms, taxes, association dues, amenities, special building products used (granite tile), things of interest in the area, schools, etc.

By providing homebuyers with the information they need and a no hassle experience you can greatly increase your chances of making your home stick out from the rest.
