Your Real Estate Professional is the best qualified person to show your home and it is her job to know the buyer's interest best. So on the days your home is being inspected or open for inspection, go for a drive or shopping trip, visit the neighbours or friends, or whatever it takes to get you out of the house to relax !
It's really before the “showing” that your work comes in. One of these is to share all you know about your home with your chosen Real Estate Agent. The more she knows about the home, the better she can sell it for you. Don't hide your home's flaws. Sooner or later these will come up anyway. It's best if your Real Estate Agent knows everything, the good and the bad. Alternatively, she may even be able to provide creative solutions to what you perceive as problems with the home, or know about a niche market of buyers that actually wants those features in a home.
The other major job for the seller is to clean up. Making sure you home is clean is very important. A home being inspected from a potential buyer needs to be completely clean, top to bottom, with no corner or crevice forgotten. Don't forget about cupboards or closets, as buyers almost always open these up to have a look. Consider getting drapes and carpets professionally cleaned.
Along with cleaning comes de-cluttering. It is imperative that you remove clutter from your home. More than tidying up, this implies maybe even getting rid of some of your decorations. If you are the type to have lots of little figurines or a vase collection, choose maybe one, then put the rest in storage. Since spare rooms and storage spaces can sometimes be key selling features, so don't just cram everything in there. Consider renting storage space. Since you will be moving anyway, having some of your things packed up before the house even sells could make things a lot easier when it's actually time to move.
There are professional businesses who can assist in the de-clutter process or helping you putting it into storage until you are moving into YOUR next home after selling this one !
