Home On Deposit Time To Stop The Crazy Cleaning

So your home is now on deposit, now you don’t need to run around cleaning all the time.  Wait, don’t put away the Windex and sponges just yet.  While it’s nice that the buyer appreciated your efforts and made you an acceptable offer now you have to maintain their excitement.  First there is the building inspection.  While the inspector will be looking at the furnace, chimney, plumbing and electrical issues, your buyers eyes will be everywhere.  Hopefully you had some time to address and last minute repair items, but just as important you want your home to be spotless because while your inspector is busy doing his thing the buyer is wandering around looking at every nook and cranny.  You want them to fall in love with your home all over again.  Make it shine, and yes even consider having some flowers out on the counter once again, it doesn’t make sense to allow buyer’s remorse to settle in.  While I haven’t seen any studies on this, I believe an inspector even picks up on the cleanliness of the home which may just lead them to think you also have maintained the home as well.  

Every time you know the buyer is visiting the home, to measure for drapes or the final walkthrough, get your cleaning crew to work again making sure it feels like a home that is lovingly cared for.  Trust me I know what you are thinking when is it enough, the answer is when you have the check in your hand.  Until then keep it spotless.
