Denver SHOWING ALERT! 15 minute sprint to show

These showing tips for the DENVER HOME SELLER are from an awesome stager, Pam McCormick at Colorado Stage to Sell 303-788-0264

This just adds to my tips for getting ready to show your home in 15 minutes...take a look at http://www.denverrelocation.com/ShowingYourDenverHomein15MinutesDenverRealEstate.html

For the Denver homeowner, selling a home is a stressful time. It requires them to keep their house looking great at the drop of a hat. After they have had their home professionally staged, here are some suggestions you can give the seller to ensure the house is always ready for a showing.

-Have them purchase a large canvas laundry bag. (I have put my own together that I give to agents, called my "Show and Sell Bag") and in it put premoistened glass-cleaner wipes, furniture wipes, lint roller, air neutralizing spray and trash bags. Then when they get that last minute call for a showing, they grab their bag and go room to room picking up any items that keeps the house from being show ready (excess mail, toys, magazines, dirty laundry etc.) and put it into the bag. Then while in each room they wipe off the glass surfaces and furniture, use the air spray to freshen up the room, empty the trash and if no time to vacuum, use the lint roller to pick up any pet hair etc. They can then take the bag with them when they leave and then when they get home they can put all the items back in their proper place.

-Toss wet morning towels in the washer before heading off for the day.

-Roll all bathroom or kitchen rugs and tuck them under the sink in the vanity or cupboard.

-If they have pets they will need to make a plan ahead of time to take their pets somewhere when there is a showing. Pets should not be around during a showing. Put all pet dishes, beds and toys into a large trash bag and store out of sight.

-Always try to have a bowl of fresh fruit or fresh flowers available to place on the kitchen table. Make it a standard purchase at the grocery store each week.
