Sellers: Pretend it’s not your house.
Let’s say your home is about to be shown for the first time, maybe for an open house. What should you do first? Pretend you don’t live there.
Seriously, now. Walk thorough your home as if you’re seeing it for the first time. Could someone trip over the coffee table? Are the kids’ toys underfoot? How easy would it be to stumble over the TV cord that you’ve learned to avoid, or the step-down you don’t notice anymore? Straighten up, no matter how tedious it might be. Have your Realtor warn potential buyers about step-downs and low door frames. You’re looking for a sale, not a lawsuit.
