HOUSE FOR SALE CLEANING CHECKLIST – FREEBIE

A sweet reader asked for some suggestions for how and what to clean while her house is on the market, never knowing when an impromptu showing may happen.  What a great opportunity for a freebie checklist!  Getting a house ready to sell is such a hard job – it’s so emotionally and physically draining.  Once your house is for sale, you have the uncertainty of when the next showing will be.  How about a quick clean checklist to keep track of what you need to do quickly before a showing or just to keep the house in tip-top shape while it’s for sale.
