At this stage, it's all about making your home show worthy and preparing for showings. Go above and beyond to show the attention you've given your home and your pride in it. Make it stand out and get noticed amongst competing properties on the market.

Here are some tips:

  1. Invest in a deep clean. 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. Be sure that the exterior of your home and property isn't neglected.

  2. Spend time de-cluttering. Wherever possible, channel your inner "Marie Kondo" and reduce the amount of items in your home. Too many things make a home look and feel smaller.

  3. Depersonalize the space. 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 as they distract from the experience.

  4. Lock up valuables. It's always good to lock up or remove your valuable items in advance of showings. Examples may include jewelry, watches, passports and cash.
