Places Buyers Look When Viewing your Home


You might be surprised to know which spaces in a home most Buyers look at when viewing a property. If you’re preparing your home for sale, make sure to consider tidying and cleaning the following places that are likely to be checked out:


Inside closets. 

Buyers want to get a sense of the size and capacity of all your closets. Make sure they’re clean and well organized. Avoid the “overstuffed” look. If you want to get a head start on packing, consider pre-packing your out-of-season wardrobe and reducing the amount of clothing in your closet. This will automatically make your closet space look bigger. 


Do you think Buyers will stick to the main room of your basement? Think again. Serious Buyers will also check out the furnace room, cold room, electrical box, and even crawl spaces. Tidy these areas by decluttering, organizing, pre-packing, and deep cleaning. 

Under the sinks. 

Buyers will definitely look under the kitchen sink. You can expect some Buyers to open the doors of bathroom vanities as well. Make sure trash bins are empty and everything looks neat and clean.


Buyers often look out windows to assess views. You can’t change what they see, but you can ensure the window itself is clean.

In the cupboards and appliances.

If you are including the appliances in the sale of your home, Buyers will most likely look inside. Ahead of time, hire a professional cleaning service to deep clean your appliances or do it yourself. Declutter your fridge, clean your stove and tidy your cupboards and pantry.

Sides of the property. 

When it comes to outdoor space, the backyard has the biggest impact. So, do whatever you can to make it look its best. However, don’t neglect your side yard. Unsightly garbage bins, weeds, tree clippings, debris, etc. can quickly dampen a Buyer’s initial enthusiasm for your property.


When in doubt, put yourself in a Buyer's shoes. Where would you look if you were considering purchasing a home? For more staging tips, check out our other blogs! Considering selling your home? Give us a call! We are always happy to help.
