Smooth sale, clean house, seller, buyer, real estate advice, closingMost purchase agreements contain language that requires the seller to hand over a home free of trash and debris and "broom clean" at closing. 
While most times this language is not precise, the general idea is that you should convey a clean house to your buyers, one in the same condition 
that you hope to find your new home.

When the movers leave with your furniture, you may even want to consider hiring a professional cleaning service to thoroughly clean the home, 
steam clean the carpets and get rid of any odors.

It is also important to make sure the yard is looking the same as when the property was on the market. Mow the lawn one last time, get rid of 
those pesky weeds that grew a foot since the buyers did their inspections, water the lawn and make sure the yard looks neat.

Get rid of any leftover junk and personal property in the storage shed, attic spaces, garage and back yard. It is crucial to leave your house as 
pristine as possible for the new owners.

When the buyers show up for their final walk-through, they will feel much better about finalizing the sale if everything sparkles and you have 
exceeded their expectations. This will set up a positive mood for completing the transaction and help to minimize any disputes at the closing table.
