Prepare Your Home for a Showing in 15 Minutes or Less

    It’s every seller’s nightmare – the last-minute showing appointment. The buyers and their agent are on their way to see your home or, worse still, they’re sitting outside! Don’t worry – you can get your home ready to show in 15 minutes or less – here’s how:

    #1 – Make your home smell delicious.
    How? Put ½ cup of water and 1 to 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes to freshen your kitchen and remove odors. You might also throw a lemon peel or wedge in your garbage disposal and run it. For more ways to make your home smell great, click here.)

    #2 – Put dirty dishes in the dishwasher or quickly wash them.

    #3 – Wipe down your kitchen and bathroom counters; pre-moistened counter wipes are great for this!

    #4 – Empty your garbage cans – kitchen and bathroom (and don’t forget your home office!).

    #5 – Hide dirty clothes in the washing machine.

    #6 – Have a cat? Scoop that litter box!

    #7 – TAKE A DEEP BREATH – you’re halfway done!

    #8 – Quickly run the vacuum, especially in high-traffic areas.

    #9 – Give the toilets a quick scrub – toilet scrubbers with disposable heads are a huge help here. And don’t forget to drop the lid!

    #10 – Turn on all the lights.

    #11 – Leave the house.

    #12 – SMILE – you did it, and this buyer might just be the one!
