Moderate Cleaning

Moving everything out is one thing, but ensuring what is left behind is clean and orderly will do much to smooth out the entire process. You won’t be tasked with making the place absolutely spotless, but a nice, deep clean can do much to improve the quality of your Exit Property. Keep in mind that you will need to go on two walkthroughs with the buyer, both after signing the contract and at the time of closing. Be sure to focus on key areas, including:

  • Appliances — Check all of the appliances in your home (washer, dryer, microwave, etc.) 
  • Fixtures — All lights should be cleaned, with any burnt bulbs replaced.
  • Surfaces — Floors and walls should be wiped down to remove any stains or grime. Now may be the perfect time to add a fresh layer of paint to increase your resale value!
  • Storage spaces — We can forget about the items stored in the storage, attic, shed, and garage. Check each space to ensure you didn’t leave anything behind.

Yard Maintenance

Proper lawn care will help to increase the aesthetics and value of your property, as the home’s curb appeal is often a top priority when buying or selling. B&M Amarillo Homes can provide the right instruction for each aspect of the property:

  • Yard should be mowed, watered, and free of weeds.
  • All trees and shrubs should be trimmed.
  • Property should be free of pet droppings and unattached lawn decorations.
  • Unused firewood should be removed.

Property Demands

All utilities on the property should be on and functioning at the time of possession. Any maintenance demands (i.e. HVAC filters) should be completed as well. It’s important to follow our trade-in checklist before making the property transaction, so be sure to catch up on all necessary items to make the closing process as smooth as possible.
