So this is my first experience buying a house. Scott purchased our current home when he was 23. All the information I have is from watching HG TV. What I have learned is that you need to step back from your house and look at it as the buyer. This means packing up anything that is not essential and to clean like you have never cleaned before. I have spent the last several night starting to pack up and we have a lot of stuff! I keep packing and packing - yet nothing looks even remotely cleaned up. I am so glad we are getting a housekeeper to come in to do the deep cleaning in a couple weeks. We are hoping to get out on Sunday to see some potential houses after church. What a fun and exhausting experience.
