4 Spring Cleaning Tips for Sellers

spring-header

The countdown has begun! (Well, some of us may have started counting down a while ago.) Only THREE more weeks until SPRING!

Here’s a few tips for spring cleaning and preparing your home to sell it.

#1. Wash the walls using soap and warm water. Dust and grease can stick to walls and make them look dingy over time. 

#2. Take care of any funky smells! Remove everything from your refrigerator and deep clean the inside with baking soda and water for a fresh scent.  Put lemon peel down your garbage disposal and run the disposal for a few seconds. To clean your dishwasher, boil some lemon juice and add it to your dishwasher for a cycle. 

#3. Let the beautiful Spring sun into rooms! Clean all blinds and windows (inside AND outside of windows). Put up light weight/shear curtains to allow more light in (this will make rooms more appealing to prospective buyers!). 

#4. Freshen up around the yard. Give the garage and front doors a good clean by washing them with a rag and soapy water to loosen all the dirt and grime built up over winter and then hose them down with a power washer or strong setting on the garden hose. Clean up any debris around the yard– sticks, trash, etc. left under the melted snow piles.
