Just because your home is on the market doesn’t mean it’s high time to cut the contract up with your landscaper, and turn your front yard into a jungle. Consider the following if you want to keep the integrity of your home in tact, even if the keys are about to switch hands:
Keep Windows Clean
Potential buyers probably (hopefully?) won’t be wiping their hands all over your windows during the showing process, but it doesn’t hurt to make the rounds during your home selling process to ensure all of the glass is clean and void of smudge marks.
I always laugh when you see what is noticeably a little kid’s face and finger marks all over the windows. You can just imagine them pressing up against the glass and staring out the window. Of course, not long after I laugh I also shed a tear or two on behalf of the owner. But hey, that’s just par for the course when it comes to keeping your home in tip-top share for buyers. So don’t forget to keep those windows a quick scan after a weekend of showings.
