At this stage, it's all about making your home show worthy and preparing for showings. Go on and above to show the attention you've given your home and your pride in it. Make it stand out and get noticed! Some tips: freshen up your Abōde.

First thing's first, Cleanliness: Beyond the mopping and dusting, you may also consider having your windows and carpets cleaned. And don't forget, it's not just what's on the inside that counts; don't neglect the outside. No matter the seasonality, ensure your landscaping is well-groomed.

Declutter: Wherever possible, channel your inner "Marie Kondo" and reduce the amount of "stuff" in your home. Too many things make a home look and feel smaller.

Depersonalize: The buyer's goal is to envision themselves at home when coming for a viewing. Try removing large family photos or personal items when showing.

Lock up valuables: It's always good to lock up or remove your valuable items. Examples may include jewelry, watches, passports, cash, and inherited candlesticks.
