Preparing a Highlands NC Home For Sale, Cleanliness Counts

Cleanliness counts when preparing a Highlands NC home for sale. While this should go without saying, it also bears repeating. If staging sounds daunting for sellers they should simply focus on having a home sparkle. Nothing turns away a buyer quicker than a dirty, unorganized, smelly home. Your Highlands NC REALTOR will be a great resource on what to expect from the selling process and this includes the preparation stage.

Fresh and neutral

Aromas should be balanced and neutral in a Highlands NC home. Not only should pet and garbage odors be eliminated but so should perfume or incense type odors. Candles, potpourri, and other “pleasant” smells are not embraced by all. Keeping a home clean can help avoid strong scents. However, a fresh batch of cookies could easily offer a cozy, homey feel. Keep windows open for some fresh mountain air in a home as well!

Clean surfaces

Keep counters, walls, floors, and railings clean and clutter-free. This is especially true in kitchens and bathrooms. But, paying attention to cabinet fronts, walls, doors, and drawers is important everywhere. Dirty fingerprints, holes from hanging pictures, and dust above door and window frames can make a negative impact.

Keep it clean

Once you have cleaned your Highlands NC home you will need to keep it clean. A little work every day will make this easier. Additionally, the cleaner your home is the easier it will be to be ready for showings at the top of a hat. A clean home is a cardinal rule of showing a home.
