  • How Much Cleaning Of My North Shore Long Island House Must I Do Before Moving Out?


    This is a great question.


    Being Realtors on The North Shore Of Long Island, we see houses being left in all kinds of condition. We see homes that have been scrubbed for the new owners, ones that are broom swept, and those with trash left behind.
    Most of the time, sellers leave the house in pretty good condition. They clean the kitchen and baths, they vacuum the carpets, they clean the counter tops and mop the floors.
    Some even have a cleaning crew completely clean the house for the new owners, but sometimes it's not as clean as it should be.
    Recently we went on a walk-through and found the house with:
    • Trash bags all around
    • Food on the counters, in the cabinets and the refrigerator and freezer full
    • The electric was turned off so the food was starting to rot
    • The cabinets were not cleaned out
    • Closets had dirty old clothes on the floor
    • The garage was a total mess

    Most people do a great job of leaving their house looking good, but this is why a final walk-through is so important...

    So home sellers, keep this in mind, when your house is sold, leave it to the new buyers just the way you would like to find your new one ~ It's really the right thing to do!
