Today we’re going to talk about Seller's Secret number 11. This one today is an interesting topic; it's basically getting your home super clean, decluttering and just declaring war on all the dust, all the squeaky sounds, all the little small things that make a big difference.

It's very important to get scrub every corner of the house, get tidy, get deep cleaning. If you're busy or you're unable to do this for whatever reason, you should hire someone to do it for you.

Don't take this lightly, especially if you're trying to maximize the sale price. If you have a nice house and you're trying to get top price, then you've got to do these things. And some agents may not tell you to do these things, because they're just trying to quickly put it for sale and sell it before you change your mind. Or they don't want to offend you.

But we're here to tell you that if your bathrooms are dirty, guess what? You're getting less money or you're getting that buyer that will actually pay you top dollar to get turned off and go buy your neighbor's house.

And take note, getting somebody to help you clean the house or doing very minor touch-ups, it's going to cost you a lot less than what you're losing if you don't.

Like squeaky sounds, light switches that doesn't work, the tiny cracks in the bathroom, mirrors, because these can be deal-killers. You don't want to have the buyer to give you a reason to kind of fight you on your price, to work you down, right?

We're not just talking about re-sale homes that are in decent, nice houses. We're talking about even brand new homes. Sometimes they have little things that need to be fixed. We're talking about fixer-uppers. If you're going to renovate the house, we've walked through brand-new, like newly renovated homes that had squeaky doors or squeaky closets, and that's just a turn-off. That's just going to show the buyer that this is a half job.

You don't want to give them any reason to come back with a lower number. You want a higher number.

So, make sure you do your proper cleaning, decluttering, de-personalizing, but more importantly, just declare war on dust, squeaky sounds and all those light switches that doesn't work, all the turnoffs.
