Rick’s Rule 2: Nobody wants to buy a used house.
Of course, unless it’s a newly built house, everyone knows that most houses have been previously lived in. Your job is to make your house to look as new as possible. Along with depersonalizing, you need to paint, dust, and clean. This rule also covers deodorizing your house so that it smells new. Make sure that pet hair and dreadful odors, such as that cat-box smell are also removed. It’s important to keep in mind that some buyers or their children have pet allergies. If you have an opportunity, go to a builder’s model home. You will never see dog hair or a dirty cat box.
