Quick ways to prepare a vacant home for sale!

1. Hire a professional cleaning crew to clean the house, inside and out.

2. If you don't plan to stage the home, have the carpet deep-cleaned or replaced.

3. Give all the rooms a fresh coat of paint.

4. Put a lamp in every room with timers so lights can turn on and off at different times. That way, buyers won't need to search for light switches in dark rooms.

5. In a non-distressed property, keeps the rooms at a comfortable temperature.

6. Put at least one air freshener in each room and closet out of sight so the home smells good.
