Spring Cleaning tips to ready your Home for the Market
Even though the Real Estate market in Saline County is still moving along nicely during this pandemic, some sellers have decided to hold off listing their home for the time being. This presents many opportunities for future sellers.
With a large part of our population currently under mandatory stay-at-home orders, anyone with a non-essential job has suddenly found themselves with lots of extra free time. Between that and social distancing, there isn’t a better way to take advantage of the situation and tackle home projects like spring cleaning.
Believe it or not, there are lots of things you can do to prep your house for a sale without even going to the store. Your real estate plans don’t have to be completely on hold even while we’ve hit the pause button on other parts of daily life. Tackling small projects from cleaning the corners you may normally skip to tidying up your yard are easy and necessary wins if you’re thinking of listing your house and making a move.
Spring cleaning your whole home can feel like an overwhelming task, which is why giving yourself a daily time limit and spreading out your spring cleaning chores over the course of a week can help make it more doable—and keep you from getting unmotivated during the process!
If you need a little help in your cleaning endeavors, get your family involved. Even the most unwilling helper can make a big difference in the workload. Don’t worry: There are ways to deal with even the most reluctant helpers. This is a great time of year to get the entire family to work together. Try throwing on some music or establishing a family reward as an incentive to get the work done.
The cleaning aisles of our stores are stocked full of commercial products to help you clean, but the variety can be overwhelming. And dozens of cleaning products means dozens of cleaning products to clutter up your cabinets and closets. Resist the temptation to buy all these cleaning supplies; the real champions of spring cleaning are more basic supplies, such as a good all-purpose cleaner and microfiber cloths. Sometimes simple is better.
A good, thorough spring cleaning that includes the whole house is a great time to establish new on-going cleaning habits, and it can also make getting ready for a showing a good deal easier. Simple 15-minute cleanup routines practiced every few days, each including a series of one- to two-minute chores, can make it remarkably easy to keep your home clean and tidy all year long.
