Sellers: how clean is your house??
How much attention do you pay to the finer details when you have a home showing? How important is this to prospective buyers?
Just curious because when we've home shopped, I've noticed that a lot of the homes we looked at weren't spic n span clean. It didn't bother me, because I wasn't looking for a housekeeper. But I don't know if I'm in the minority or not.
We have a home showing tomorrow. I have a housefull of kids and a job...the house is a wreck and I'm rushing around like mad trying to clean the heck out of this place. Is it going to be a hugely negative thing if the house isn't "eat off the floor" clean? I mean it will be clean, but I may not get time to do some of the things I would do otherwise...ie there may be a stray smudge on a wall or window. Stuff like that.
Am I crazy? Should I cancel the showing and tell them I need more time or should I simply get it as good as I can?
