Many people with a Bothell house for sale think that having a tidy house will be enough to impress a seller. In reality, however, a potential homebuyer does not only want a house to be tidy, they want it to be spotless.
It is crucial to ensure that your home is very clean when you are trying to sell it. This means that everything is scrubbed thoroughly until it shines. No one wants to buy a house that is dirty and unsanitary. A dirty home is a major turn off for many potential buyers.
It is highly recommended that you hire professional cleaners to clean your house before having it viewed. This will increase the overall effect of the home and can increase the speed of the sale. Should you decide to clean the house on your own, you must be sure to clean it from top to bottom. Baseboards, walls, behind toilets, inside the toilets, stoves, counters, bathtubs all need to be attended to and the list just goes on. This is a lot of work, but like other hard work, the rewards can be great.
Reasons to hire professionals
Many people do not really understand what clean really is. It can be hard to know when everything is clean enough for the Bothell home to be sold, since as a homeowner you may have been living there for quite some time and have seen it much dirtier. This can throw off your perspective and can result in a house that appears clean to you, but when a stranger walks in they will notice all the spots you have missed. Professional cleaners come in with an unbiased view of what a clean home should look like. They will ensure that your Bothell house for sale is spotless and ready to be sold as soon as possible.
Having a house for sale that is tidy and having one that is clean are two very different things and can create two very different situations. If a potential buyer walks into your house for sale and sees dirt they can and most likely will be turned off faster then they would be with a messy house. Cleanliness is a great selling aid and can increase the speed of any home sale.
