5 Areas of Your Home to Deep Clean Before You Sell
You know that it's important to make a great first impression on potential buyers, so you're probably already sorting through knick-knacks and hiding them away to clear the clutter. However, there are five places that many homeowners check carefully before making a decision.
All locations that might indicate whether or not the house has been carefully maintained. It may seem a bit obvious, but you want to go over these locations with a careful eye to detail.
1. Laundry Room
Let's face it, spaces that are dedicated to cleaning can tend to get pretty grimy. Laundry rooms can accumulate all types of debris, most of which your eye overlooks as a homeowner. A potential buyer is on the lookout for proof that the home is in good shape, so be sure to check for any water damage on the floor and loose pipes. Keep your detergent and cleaning materials packed safely away to help the space feel larger.
2. Bathtubs and Showers
Nothing says "grimy" like a tile shower that has some stains on the grout! Even bathtubs can be pretty icky around the edges. Take some extra time to clean these spaces, being extra sure to get rid of any soap residue. Also, ensure that your bathing items such as soaps and such are clean and neat and not scattered about.
A dirty kitchen is a big turn-off for most buyers, but even when you have your kitchen "surface clean" buyers may find some hidden corners of grunge. Look particularly under your kitchen sink and make sure your cupboards look neat. Keep in mind that they will likely open every cabinet and closet in your home!
Speaking of closets, are yours in good shape? Overstuffed closets — even large ones — can be a turn-off for home buyers. Look for ways to organize your items, perhaps packing your off-season clothing away in a storage unit for the time being.
5. Garage / Basement
All the de-cluttering in your home can take a toll on your garage and basement, turning them into a labyrinth of bags and boxes that can make the space feel much smaller than it is. Again, consider a short-term storage unit for items that need to leave your home but that you're not ready to get rid of forever. Don't forget the dark corners where spiders like to lurk in their webs!
Once you've got these five locations under control, you should be in great shape for your next home showing! Ready to start planning your move? True Friends Moving Company in Nashville is always there for you.
Timing is Everything: How to Maximize Your Move
Very few people actually look forward to moving, but there are definitely things that you can do to minimize the pain (and cost) of moving. Planning ahead can help you maximize your move. If you know the date and time in advance so you can make arrangements with a moving company or friends and family for assistance, you'll be one step closer to your new home.
Want our best tip? Start early in the day to keep your energy high and reduce stress to manageable levels.
Tip #1: Stick to Week Days
It might seem like it's easier to move on the weekend when it's more likely that friends and family members can help, but this strategy may end up costing you money. Moving companies are busier on the weekends, and you might be able to get a great deal if you're moving in the middle of the week.
While this may mean utilizing a moving company instead of your friends, True Friends Moving can help you make the move safely, even if you're going up and down stairs or moving heavy furniture.
Tip #2: Take Advantage of Mid-Month Savings
Just as moving in the middle of the week is optimal, moving in the middle of the month might ease some woes too. Stay away from major holidays to ensure that you have access to the supplies and service options that you'll need for your move.
Summer holidays such as Labor Day or the Fourth of July are especially big moving days due to the expected good weather and availability of helpers. Think about it logically: when are most leases starting or ending? The beginning of the month -- so avoid those dates at all costs!
Tip #3: Consider the Season
Determining which month of the year is the best for your move depends on a variety of factors. If you have children in school, it usually makes sense to wait until winter break or summer break -- which tend to be longer blocks of time to allow your young ones to get settled and for you to complete paperwork.
However, if you don't have to worry about school timing, you may find better rates during the very early spring or later in the year. The majority of moves occur between June and October, so skipping these months could potentially save you cash.
