So, how do you survive showings on your West Knoxville home and still keep your sanity?

In a perfect world, showings would happen with a decent amount of notice. Unfortunately, that’s not always how things work in the West Knoxville real estate world.

Much of the stress associated with showings on your West Knoxville home can be alleviated with a little preparation. Prepare each day as if your have a showing on your West Knoxville home, so if a last minute showing gets scheduled you’re not frantic. There is nothing worse than trying to run home in the middle of the day to clean up dirty dishes or dirty laundry off the floor. Get into a routine where you make sure you leave the house each day with the home ready for showings. It’ll make the process a whole lot better.

It can be overwhelming to find the time to mow the yard, weed flower beds, clean the floors,  dust the house, among the endless list of other daunting tasks to keep your West Knoxville home “showing ready.” Instead of trying to do it all in one day, break down the list into a few things everyday. It can make things less stressful and won’t eat up a whole day.
