Cold and flu season is in full swing and your homesellers may be worried about the germs that buyers leave behind when they visit their home. The following tips can help keep a seller’s home free of nasty germs:
Remove your shoes:Shoes can bring in plenty of bacteria and toxins into a home. The average pair of shoes has more than 420,000 units of bacteria on the soles, according to microbiologists at the University of Arizona. A boot tray near the door and a sign at the front door can be gentle reminders to have others please remove their shoes upon entering. You can offer up paper booties too. Also, rugs and mats at all entrances will help catch some of the dirt and germs.
Wash your hands:Influenza can survive on hard surfaces, countertops, door knobs, and handles for up to 48 hours. But it can easily be killed by alcohol-based hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, and soap and water. Following each showing, wipe down light switches, doorknobs, handles, and cabinet pulls.
Hide the hygiene tools:Stow away the toothbrush in a drawer prior to a showing to help make sure no one comes into contact with it.

"When I sold my home I interviewed many Companies. Knowing most buyers come from the internet I was looking for a Company with a strong internet presence. I googled some terms like, "Lake Worth Homes For Sale" and "homes for sale in Lake Worth", and almost every time Exit Realty Premier was on the first page of Google. Then when I met with the agent from Exit Realty Premier and saw the HD photographs, aerial photos, on line visual tours and videos and all the technology I was sold. I signed with them and sold my home in record time, for the price I wanted and had a smooth quick closing. My agent was very professional and knowledgeable and kept me informed every step of the way.
