Why Have Your Property Professionally Cleaned Before Selling
If you are wondering whether or not you should hire a cleaning professional before selling your property, keep reading. We have put together a collection of benefits that come with a squeaky clean house that you plan to sell.
1. First Impressions Mean the World
A spotless house is a great way to make a good impression when buyers begin to visit your property for sale. This first impression is one that you will never get back, so don't make the mistake of missing out on a clean home.
Once you have your real estate agent scheduling showings, you want to ensure that your house looks as nice as the pictures that they have taken and posted for marketing your home. What would you think if you saw listing photos of a pristine house, only to show up and the place be a wreck? It would be disappointing, to say the least.
Hiring a professional cleaner to help keep the house in tip-top shape can help keep it looking consistent with the photos used to market the property.
Getting your house clean and in order before being photographed is essential. If you are short on time, here are several cost-free home preparations for professional photography that you can do yourself.
When you are preparing to put your house on the market, getting an appraisal is very important and is required before closing the deal. Once again, it is important to make sure that you make a good impression, so that they do not undervalue your home. You can learn more about this process in our blog post, “Should I Have My Home Cleaned Before an Appraisal.”
2. A Well Taken Care of House Can Make You More Money
When a house's cleanliness levels are top-notch, your home will look like it is in better shape and well maintained. When a house looks like it is maintained, a potential buyer will be more likely to spring for your home, even if it is slightly out of their price range. A well-maintained home also gives you more power when it comes to negotiating prices, as there is little for the buyer to complain about.
Curb appeal is everything when it comes to selling a home, even if that curb appeal is indoors. Clean homes add to the “curb appeal” of your house and can help drive up demand which in turn drives up the price.
An additional tip is to depersonalize your home by packing up any personal items, such as photos and belongings. This allows potential buyers to see themselves and their families in your home.
3. A Clean Home Opens Things Up Indoors
Clearing out any clutter in and around your interiors opens up your rooms and makes them look more spacious. This is a huge selling point and is typically used as a descriptor on home listings.
By having a “spacious” house, people can fully realize the space and envision what they can do with the home. Once again, this gives buyers a positive impression and allows them to see what their lives could look like in your property for sale.
4. Hiring a Professional Can Free Up Time
By hiring a professional cleaning service to take care of your home, you can free up vast amounts of time that you would spend cleaning between showings, as well as before closing. This frees you up to spend more time doing what you love and keeps your house more open to short-notice showings.
