With the current slow housing market, it is now even more important to keep your house clean and tidy when trying to sell.

To give you a helping hand and perhaps some well needed motivation, here are some tips to keeping your house market-friendly:

– Wash windows inside and out, after all first impressions are important. A good tip is to dry the windows with crumpled newspaper and if you can, wash the windows on a cloudy rather than sunny day, because the sun can cause it to streak.

– Clean shower, sinks and bath tubs, to remove hard water spots and scum off showers use undiluted, heated white vinegar. Put in a spray bottle, spray on and leave to soak for 15 mins and then scrub.

– Clean all light fixtures and replace lightbulbs with a higher wattage, these little things are easy to forget, but can make all the difference.

– Put non-essential items in boxes to eliminate clutter, so that viewers can see the whole space, it will also make the rooms look bigger.

A clean house will help viewers see themselves living there and will show that you take pride in maintaining the house.
