It's time to put your house on the market. What's the first thing you need to do? Clean it! From top to bottom. Believe it or not, if your house is dirty, you're not going to get a buyer as quickly as you would like. So what do you need to do, where do you start? Keep reading below to find out :)
Clean Houses Sell Faster
In our previous post "How To Sell Your House Yourself Fast" we just barely touched on the fact that you need to clean your house and concentrated more on making repairs. The fact is, your house has to be clean.
Yes, a nice and clean house will most definitely sell faster than one that is dirty. A lot of people skip this step, only to wonder why their house isn't selling as quickly as others that are similar on the market. Think you don't need to super clean your house? Don't take our word for it - check this out:
We couldn't agree more with what they have to say about showing a dirty house. If you have spent a lot of time and money with the upkeep of your property, you don't want potential buyers walking away because your house is dirty and think it hasn't been maintained.
Getting The Job Done
Now you know without a doubt you have to "super clean" your house. Some people will have more work to do than others. Yes there are "clean freaks" out there that won't have to do as much. But there are others that will have to do much more, especially if they have a house full of small children and pets.
Check out this article from Curbed that will give you some good advice on some tools to use to get the job done:
You might already have a good vacuum cleaner, however if you don't just think of it this way - if you go buy a nice one you will have it to use at your new dwelling!
Summing It Up
Don't think that you don't have to deep clean your house before selling it. While it is true that people are looking at the layout of the property, they will also be subconsciously making judgements about the property due to it's cleanliness. If you don't have a good vacuum cleaner or other cleaning supplies, go ahead and buy them and you can take them with you to your next house or apartment.
