    • Toilet seat down?
  3. Check the walls
    • Is paint and wallpaper fresh and clean?
    • Are the walls free from holes?
    • Are there any colors or objects on the walls that need to be removed?
  4. Check windows and window coverings
    • Are all the windows clean?
    • Are draperies and blinds clean?
  5. Pet check
    • Are there any signs that this is a pet's home?  Be sure to clean and remove kitty litter, pet toys and bedding.
  6. How's the aroma?
    • Try to air out the home prior to showings
    • If air freshener is necessary, use well before showings as a consideration to those with allergies. (Avoid strong fragrances.  Subtle, natural fragrances are best)

    • Open draperies and blinds to maximize natural light
    • Turn on the radio to a classical music station, set the volume on low.
