Prior to listing a home, having it cleaned is crucial for photographs and ultimately a buyer’s first impression when you are trying to sell and we will call this my Home Selling Tip 101! Ever look around your home and think wow, this place is pretty dirty? I’d say the chances are pretty good! Maybe on a normal day, it doesn’t matter too much. If you are trying to market your home to sell, however, a spotless home is a critical real estate tip that should not be overlooked!
I have noticed a need amongst many busy families for some help in keeping their home clean. Everyone is just so busy these days, whether they are working from home or at the office. The daily grind is really taxing and between commuting, dropping the little ones off at daycare, or taking older kids to their extracurricular activities (amongst a thousand other things), finding that additional time to clean a washroom or dust your built-ins is just that much more challenging.
I often have to hire home cleaners to help my clients get their homes prepared to go to market. It doesn’t matter if the house is in Oakville, Burlington, Milton or somewhere else in Halton – the need for a clean home unites us! This deep clean before listing a house for sale is critical because buyers formulate their opinion of a home very quickly. First impressions matter and since the photos of your home is what is seen first, I make sure the area is spotless before I proceed with the photography and video tours.
When a buyer walks up to the front door, the glass cannot be grimy! The exterior lights should sparkle and once they walk inside, a buyer will quickly decide whether they like what they see. A bunch of dust bunnies, cobwebs in corners or grimy appliances may leave a negative impression. There are many places in your home that are overlooked during regular daily life but when you are trying to sell your home, you need to look at every nook and cranny and make sure that everything is polished and as clean as possible.
I have come to know Dominique, from Lavender and Pine very well over the years as I have helped her and her family buy and sell their home more than once. She’s a wonderful, caring person with a very generous spirit. When she told me that she planned on opening her own cleaning business, I immediately started thinking of ways in which I could support her.
Lavender and Pine is a small business servicing Binbrook, Stoney Creek, Ancaster, Hamilton, Waterdown, Burlington and Oakville. Services include regular and deeper cleans, moving in and out cleans, pre-list cleans, Airbnb and commercial cleans. Dominique’s hard-working nature is evident when she cleans homes. There is a genuine desire to please the homeowner and make sure that her work is going above and beyond their expectations. Her goal is to turn your home into a relaxing, tidy and spotless sanctuary and allow you to keep your free time free!
