How to Live When Your Home Is for Sale

Those who have put their home on the market before know it can sometimes take time to find the right buyer. Occasionally, it will take a lot of time. So how do you go about living in your home when it's listed? 

Keep it clean. Once your home is available to be shown strive to keep it in tip-top shape. While this will require a lot of effort on your part, it's important to understand that buyers need to feel welcomed and not turned off by unmade beds, cluttered floors, and grungy bathrooms.

Stay flexible. When your home is on the market, you have to realize that your life will be temporarily inconvenienced. When you get a call at the last minute about a buyer wanting to come by, respond favorably. Remember, your goal is to get the home sold, and that can only be accomplished if people get to see it. Flexibility is the key to a quick sale.

Plan not to be present when buyers pass through. While you might like to be around to greet potential buyers, it is awkward and unsettling for them to have the owners present. If you cannot leave, sit in the backyard. Do not attempt to have conversations with the buyer. Speak only when spoken to; be brief and polite.

Pay mind to the pets. If you have dogs, take them with you when you go out, or keep them tied in the backyard. Be mindful of pet odors. Nothing turns a buyer away faster than a home that smells like kitty litter.
