Spring Cleaning Checklist to Get the Most Money for Your Home



Below is a list of items to help you prepare your home for the market. The most important thing to remember is to declutter and de-personalize! I can't emphasize this enough! Your home should feel like you have not out-grown it - there should be some empty space in the closets and all cabinets (including bathroom kitchen and pantry).


The most important thing you can do to get the most money in the lease amount of time is hire an experienced and knowledgable Realtor.
