When you hire a house cleaner or maid service, you expect that your house will be neater and cleaner. There are certain rules that you should follow to keep your house maid happy. Your maid is not there to clean up after you for absolutely everything you do in your home. You need to give your cleaning person the tools to do his or her job well. 


Here’s What You Should Do Before Your Cleaning Service Arrives


Pre-cleaning before you are paying someone to clean your house may seem counter intuitive. They are there to clean for you, right? The problem is that the more your cleaning service has to clean, the longer that it will take. This means that the messier your house is, the more expensive that it will be for you to have your home cleaned. Here’s what you should do before the maid service gets to the home:          


Clean Up Your Dirty Dishes


You should take the time to load your dishwasher and clean up your sink a bit. It can take a lot of time for your house keeper to take care of these small things that should be a part of your daily tasks. 


Do Your Own Laundry


It is advisable for you to take care of your own laundry if you have the time to do it yourself. Doing laundry could take your house keeper hours of time. They could use that time to do other things like dust, scrub, and deep clean your home. 


Put Away Your Own Things


Do you have leftovers in the kitchen that need to be put away? Are there clothes on the floor of your bedroom? Do the kids‘ toys need to be put away? Some of these tasks can be done simply by you in a matter of minutes instead of by your house keeper.


The bottom line is that you don’t want your house keeper to see you as a slob. While they are more than happy to clean your home, they aren’t your personal servant. Also, your house cleaner probably isn’t showing up to your home daily. You want to keep up your clean home in between professional cleanings. 


What You Should Let The Housecleaner Do


Your house cleaner is there to help you complete certain tasks around your home. In fact they really want to do certain things in your home to help you get a deep clean that you wouldn’t otherwise have. Your housekeeper wants to help you with:

 

  • Vacuuming
  • Scrubbing
  • Deep cleaning your bathroom sink
  • Cleaning your toilet
  • Deep cleaning your kitchen
  • Mopping the floors  

How To Assist Your House Keeper


There are a few things that you should do to help your housekeeper do their job well. These tasks include:


  • Keep pets out of the way
  • Tell your housekeeper exactly what you need
  • Make the maid aware of any special tasks you need to be completed 


If you cooperate with the housekeeper, hiring a cleaning service can be one of the best time-saving decisions for you for a cleaner home.

A home seller may dread the thought of dealing with an aggressive property buyer, i.e. an individual who submits many requests for property improvements or price reductions prior to the closing of a home sale. Fortunately, we're here to help you take the guesswork out of dealing with an aggressive homebuyer.

Now, let's take a look at three tips to help a home seller get the best-possible results when he or she deals with an aggressive property buyer.

1. Keep Your Cool

Let's face it – an aggressive homebuyer may test your patience. But if you remain calm, cool and collected when you deal with an aggressive homebuyer, you may be better equipped than ever before to accomplish your desired home selling results.

Remember, the ultimate goal of the house selling journey is to maximize your property sale earnings. If you remain open to communication with a buyer, both you and this individual can work together to find common ground. And as a result, you and a buyer can collaborate to achieve the optimal results.

2. Know Your Options

If a buyer makes exorbitant requests during the home selling journey, it is important to keep in mind that you have options. And if problems start to escalate, you may be able to walk away from a property selling agreement.

For example, if an aggressive buyer conducts a home inspection and asks for a massive price reduction following the evaluation, you can still negotiate with this buyer. And if you and the buyer cannot come to terms, there is no need to stress. At this point, you can move on from a potential home sale and re-list your residence.

3. Hire a Real Estate Agent

Dealing with an aggressive homebuyer can be worrisome. For sellers who want to avoid the potential dangers associated with dealing with an aggressive buyer, it may be beneficial to hire a real estate agent.

In addition to guiding you along the property selling journey, a real estate agent is happy to help you negotiate with a buyer and his or her agent. That way, you can boost the likelihood of enjoying a quick, profitable house selling experience.

Typically, a real estate agent will serve as a liaison between you and a buyer. And if a buyer requests property upgrades or a price reduction prior to closing day, a real estate agent can offer recommendations about how to proceed with these requests.

A real estate agent also is available to respond to any of your home selling concerns or questions. This housing market professional understands the property selling experience can cause a seller to worry, especially if this individual is forced to deal with an aggressive buyer. But with a real estate agent's assistance, a seller can take the necessary steps to minimize potential property selling hurdles.

Simplify a negotiation with an aggressive homebuyer – use the aforementioned tips, and any home seller can seamlessly navigate a negotiation with any buyer, at any time.
