House Showing Checklist

The questionnaire

When your home is listed for sale, it’s important to have an “emergency” checklist of everything you need to do before the doorbell rings for a showing.


Here’s a quick house showing checklist we share with our clients …
Turn on all lights
Light candles
Turn on music
Take out trash
Empty dishwasher and clean out sink
Clean counters
Close toilet seats
Straighten bath towels
Clean shower glass
Make beds
Remove clutter
Clean mirrors
Turn on water features
Clean up after dogs, move bowls, etc.
Sweep patios
Remove any valuable from site or easy access
Put away sensitive financial information, statements, etc.
Put away any medications
