Home Seller Tips: Last minute checklist for listing, showing and open houses

Published 20 February 13 09:26 AM | Gord McCormick 


There seems like there are a million and one things to do to get a house ready for sale and never enough time to get everything done.  Here is a list of small but potentially important little chores that can often get forgotten.  Good time to recruit help; either family members, friends or professionals-if the list looks too daunting.

-baseboards and caulking clean and fresh

-light switches, electrical plates and walls around them clean

-stove, microwave and hood fan clean

-tile grout clean, especially in foyer, kitchen and bathroom floor and showers

-all appliances staying with the house clean

-fireplace clean and gas fireplace window cleaned

-wooden hardwood railings and spindles often need a good cleaning or sometimes refinishing

-windows and screens clean

-blinds and drapes

-carpeting cleaned and professionally if necessary

-dusting everywhere

-toilets, bathtubs and showers (clean and de-clutter showers)

-bathroom ceiling fans or other exhaust fans often collect dirt, dust, lint and other debris

-clean under fridge and stove

-make sure there is easy access to furnace, AC, HWT, air exchanger, attic, electrical panel

-check your attic

-ensure there is no sign of unwanted insects or critters in basement, garage, attic or shed.

-clean pet areas extensively

-do an odour check

-absolutely no smoking

-run air exchanger/HRV or ensure air is fresh.

-no artificial scents or smells necessary ie spray, Glade plug-ins, carpet deodorizer, vanilla etc.

-change your furnace filter

-check your HRV filter and clean the unit if necessary

-temp between 19-22 C


This is by no means an exhaustive list but hopefully alerts sellers to a couple of things they may have overlooked.  Good selling!
