DIY Chores for Showings {With a FREE Printable!}

Sharing is caring!

I feel like all we ever did was have showings on our homes when I was in middle and high school so I like to think I’m a “pro” on this topic, even though I hate cleaning itself. I have a really hard time getting motivated to clean and it’s easy to wait until an hour before a showing and freak out. I don’t have the luxury this time, with a baby so I want to do it right. I created a schedule to get myself on track.

  • Empty all small garbage cans into the large ones.

1-2 Hours Before Showing:

  • Turn all lights on, open curtains and blinds

Doggies are all settled in with the in-laws so I didn’t add anything related to them. It’s amazing how much less stuff there is to vacuum without them!
