The realtor is showing the house today, barring catastrophe. Or a cancellation. Anyway. I go so overboard when the house is being shown. I asked my husband how overboard I go, on a scale of 1 to 10, and he gave me a solid 8. 
So there’s that. 
What I mean is that I clean the house. Like a lot. Like a lot a lot. The house is kept pretty clean to begin with, but when a total stranger is coming over for 20 minutes, hoo boy. THE BASEBOARDS MUST BE CLEANED.  
And I should steam-clean the rug in the living room. And wash the throw rugs. And have my husband take apart the windows because they haven’t been cleaned in a few weeks and might be dirty. In the wintertime.
TAKE. 
APART.
THE.
WINDOWS.
In short, if you are reading this on Friday, I will be doing the flight of the bumblebee around the house. 
Have you ever listed your house for sale, and did it make you completely, batshit crazy? That is the question.
Cleanly, 
Beth

  1. Thank you for mentioning baseboards. I've spent the last several days cleaning for company and, thanks to you, I made sure to clean the baseboards. And yes, they needed it.

  2. We had already moved out of the homes we sold so never had to go through it while we lived there. However, my sister had two small children when they sold their home so she was always having to get everything cleaned and organized before leaving with the children when the house was shown. Fun times.

    Good luck with the showing.
