Good repeat article from 2016. Also "dazzle" homebuyers by pricing appropriately. Just because a hopeful Seller goes to town to clean and present a home for sale does not mean buyers will flock to overpay.

How to prep house for sale
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

One of the best hints I've come across lately is : if a call comes in that the house will be shown very soon empty everything ( dirty dishes, pet stuff Etc. ) into an opaque storage bin that is marked " Seasonal "

clean it out later
