Show Day Check List

By Martha Robertson

Getting a home ready for show can be difficult and stressful. A house collects things that a buyer doesn’t usually want to see. After repairing necessary fixtures, you can put on new paint and be ready. You think you’re done after a little rearranging. Before the Realtor arrives, there are a few more things you should check.

Get all dirty dishes away. Check every room for dishes that need to be washed and packed away before you leave. A little bit of decluttering and rearranging, and you think you’re done. Before the Realtor arrives, there are a few more things you should check.

Make sure there are no clothes on the line or in the laundry basket. Pack laundry up for the day.

Check all rooms for stray toys. Make sure there are no toys lying around the house or yard.

Make sure all sinks are singles and toilets are flushed. Put out clean towels.

Make sure all the beds are neatly made, pillows fluffed and slippers and gowns put away, not left at the side of the bed.

Open windows to let in fresh air. Spray air freshener early, or light some incense, but then clean the incense holder immediately.

Keep garbage disposal and garbage bins empty. Keep the garbage bin out of sight.

Open all blinds and curtains evenly.

If you have pets, watch out for dirt and stray hair.

Make sure to check the pavement for litter.

Doing this checklist before you see your Realtor will make your home ready for show day. Remember, show day is like an interview for your home. It needs to emphasize features and minimize faults. A buyer will find a well maintained home. On show day, when you’re rushed, you’ll find this helpful.
