You may not be there in person, but what you leave behind for a showing can help your home make a good impression to potential buyers. Here are some tips to try.

Keep it squeaky clean. You may be saving money by cleaning your home yourself, but you might not be doing it as frequently or thoroughly as you should. Consider investing in a regular cleaning service while your house is on the market. You’ll stress less when your REALTOR® calls and says it’s time for a showing, and you’ll also help your home put its best face forward while its for sale.

Create a binder of property-related documents. Gather documents like utility bills, before-and-after photos of upgrades you’ve made, and other pertinent property resources a potential buyer would find informative. You don’t have to get very fancy; a simple three-ring binder with plastic page protectors will do the trick.

Share your home’s charm. Think about creative ways to showcase some of the nice details of your home. For instance, pick a few flowers or vegetables from your garden and place them in plain view with a note explaining where they came from. Or share some baked goods with recipe cards and a note mentioning how they were prepared in your gourmet kitchen.

Your Texas REALTOR® may have other ways your property can stand out to potential homebuyers while your house is for sale. His or her experience will help you make the right choices for your market.
