However, in our hectic lives, we all know that it is impossible to always to ready! These 10 tips will help you prepare for a showing in a hurry:

Sweep or Mop

Dust the Furniture

A quick wipe down of the furniture, TV screens, and computer monitors.

Clean off Counters

All counters should be clean and clear of clutter.

Make the Beds

Empty the Garbage Cans

Vacuum Carpets

Focus your efforts on the entry and living room.

Turn the Lights On

Make sure your windows are clean too.

Load the dishwasher

Clear the dishes off the counters by loading the dishwasher (don’t start the cycle if it will be running during the showing).

Load the washer & dryer

Pick up any dirty clothes and place them in a hamper or loaded into the washer or dryer to get them out of the way.
