Help make your house for sale in Sheffield ready for viewings!

Help make your house for sale in Sheffield ready for viewings!

You will have probably already heard that when you put your house or flat in Sheffield on the market it is important to get it ready for viewings. But what exactly should you be doing above what you normally do as you have been living in your house? With help fromhomebuying.com, here are a couple of checklists to help you:

Firstly, de clutter your home; People collect an amazing quantity of junk. Consider this: if you haven't used it in over a year, you probably don't need it. If you don't need it, why not donate it or throw it away? Remove all books from bookcases. Pack up those knickknacks. Clean off everything on kitchen counters. Put essential items used daily in a small box that can be stored in a closet when not in use. Think of this process as a head-start on the packing you will eventually need to do anyway.

You need to disassociate you from your home! Say to yourself, "This is not my home; it is a house -- a product to be sold much like a box of cereal on the grocery store shelf. Make the mental decision to "let go" of your emotions and focus on the fact that soon this house will no longer be yours. Picture yourself handing over the keys and envelopes containing appliance warranties to the new owners! Say goodbye to every room. Don't look backwards -- look toward the future!

Make the house sparkle! Wash windows inside and out, rent a pressure washer and spray down sidewalks and exterior. Clean out cobwebs, re-caulk tubs, showers and sinks, polish chrome faucets and mirrors, clean out the refrigerator, vacuum daily, wax floors, dust furniture, ceiling fan blades and light fixtures, bleach dingy grout, replace worn rugs, hang up fresh towels. Bathroom towels look great fastened with ribbon and bows and clean and air out any musty smelling areas. Odors are a no-no!
