So you’re thinking about selling your Bend Oregon Real Estate but the thought of listing your home is a little intimidating because you have children and a family who is fond of making messes.

Don’t worry! Even though it might seem like an impossible task you can keep your home clean and make it stand out from other Bend Oregon Homes for Sale by following these 4 secrets.

#1 – Create a Regular Cleaning Schedule

Once we list your Bend Oregon Real Estate for you the first thing you should do to keep your home always clean is to create a schedule of things in your home you should clean every day vs. things you should clean weekly.

Daily Example: clean the bathrooms, clean the kitchen, sweep the floors and vacuum the house.

Weekly Example: dust the house, clean the bedroom, wash fingerprints off windows, organize shelves, declutter the kitchen, organize the medicine cabinet, and de-clutter the refrigerator.

By writing down regular things you should focus on cleaning daily vs. weekly you can create a schedule that everyone in your home can get in on so you don’t have to worry about cleaning your home all by yourself.

Another benefit of having a regular cleaning schedule is that you will avoid overwhelm with last minute calls from your Realtor® when they decide to show your home after 5 o’clock or on the weekends and you can have confidence that your home will literally shine among other Bend Oregon Homes For Sale.

#2 – Choose Creative Ways to Manage Clutter

Clutter is a fact of life in any home but when you’re trying to sell your Bend Oregon Real Estate it can be downright annoying but, you can easily deal with clutter by investing in baskets to hide the clutter then strategically place those baskets in a closet or on a shelf so that your home will look neat and tidy when buyers arrive.

#3 – Start Eliminating Most of Your “Stuff” Now

One common thing that can make a home stand out in a bad way among other Bend Oregon Homes for Sale is if the home is cluttered with lots of stuff.

You may love your bikes, stand up paddle board, surf boards and other fun stuff that you have in your home but as your Realtor® all we are thinking is that those things take up space and will make your home look smaller.

For best results try taking most of your stuff now and placing it in storage so your home will look bigger and more spacious when buyers arrive.

#4 – Hire a Weekly Deep Cleaning Service

While your Bend Oregon Real Estate is for sale you should consider hiring a weekly cleaning service to come by your home to do a weekly deep cleaning service to insure that no areas of your home will be untidy by the time buyers arrive.
