Tips to Stay Showing Ready:

Organize and Declutter rooms 

Studies have shown that when a space is organized and clutter is at a minimum, stress will be significantly lower. Take a day and go through all the rooms in your home and get rid of anything that you do not use anymore. Have your kids make piles of toys that they do not play with anymore, clothes that they do not need, and books that are no longer in use. You can donate these to your local charities or Goodwill! By doing this, you can free up more space and organize necessities. When a potential buyer views a home, clutter distracts them from the actual home itself. 


When children have a clear understanding of where their toys go, they are more inclined to put them away. The last thing you should have to worry about is cleaning up toys before a showing. Provide baskets for different items like dolls, toy cars, and clothing items. This way, your kids can take the toys off the floor and put them in the basket when done. To create a more visual appeal, get baskets to match the aesthetics of the room. 

Weekly ChecklistsCreate checklists to prepare for showings

Set aside a day where you can make a checklist to allocate certain tasks to each family member for the week. Provide rewards to make the chores more fun and to ensure that they get done. Having each child make their beds and straighten their rooms and bathrooms each morning will take many items off of your checklist. At night, dedicate a certain task to each family member. When one member is straightening the family room, another might be cleaning the kitchen. Families are teams, you can collectively prepare each day so you aren’t scrambling to clean before a last-minute showing!
