Once you’ve prepared your house’s interior for showing, try to go outside and check your house’s

impact to them, you need to fix it right away.

New flooring can be extremely expensive, so if you are putting your home on the market, only replace
it if it’s in really bad shape. Installing new flooring is a major expense, and the long-term benefits will

repairs, so that they do not reflect negatively on the house.

buyers look at it. The closets should not only contain a limited number of items, but they should be
clean and organized. Organize your kitchen cabinets and clean out as much stuff as you can. Be sure to
leave gourmet foods that might serve to impress the potential buyer with how sophisticated the owners

odors on furniture and carpets inside your home. For example, you could use carpet fresheners on all
your home’s carpets. Even better, get your carpets cleaned professionally before you have any showings
