For the most part, pretty darn clean. Remember you are selling something here, something that is most likely the biggest thing the buyers have ever bought. So you have to sell them the experience of what their life will be like if they make this home their own. So it needs to feel good, smell good, and be completely distraction free. You don’t want them seeing your dirty dishes and wondering what you had for breakfast…or tripping over your kid’s toys. Yes, it isn’t easy to live in a home and have it on the market, which is why I suggest talking with your agent about your challenges and working out solutions to make the process easier, right from the beginning. Sometimes an agent will have brilliant tips to make things easier…remember this IS what they do for a living.
