Ready to Show Ready to Sell

One of the biggest pain points when it comes to selling your home is trying to keep it clean enough for showings while still living there. And, chances are, if you are trying to sell your home, you have other expenses that need to be taken care of besides paying for constant housekeeping.

Hire A Housewife wants to make the whole process easier with Ready to Show Ready to Sell

Clients of our Ready to Show Ready to Sell package will enjoy our guilt-free, high-quality, personalized service, packaged in a way to help them sell their home more quickly, with less stress.


Phase one of our Ready to Show Ready to Sell program is the Initial Deep Clean.

This is a complete clean of your home to ready it for listing.

When possible, we make this combine your preferences with your realtor's input for maximum effectiveness.

The cleaning includes everything from ceiling fans to baseboards.* If something is found that we missed in the first 24 hours after the cleaning, we will come back and fix it.

Phase two is the fun part! We take all the worry out making sure your home is ready for each showing. When you call, we will come in and perform a customized "Show Clean" with as little as 20 hours notice.**

There will be a pre-approved plan that the housewife we send out follows to ensure that everything is cleaned and picked up the way you want it done, without you lifting a finger.

Sound good? It gets BETTER...

The best part of this service is that after the first payment, you don't have to pay us each time we come out. In fact, if your house sells in the first six months of using our service, the amount not prepaid isn't due until you close on the sale of your house.

We're not just helping keep your house clean, we are helping you invest in a faster, more profitable sale!

We can also schedule someone to come in between you moving out and someone new moving in, so there is no more worry about how you are leaving the house for the new owner.

Our services could actually be a selling point on your home... potential buyers know that you are keeping the home maintained and that they will be able to move in without needing to do cleaning.

Below is our pricing schedule. The different categories make our program flexible to fix your needs.

Big Changes for Hire A Housewife

I am excited to announce that over the next few months, Hire A Housewife will be rolling out new programs and packages designed to meet the needs of our customers and improve your overall experience. 

We are going to start with rate changes for today and will make other announcements in the coming days and weeks... so keep reading and stay tuned for what is coming in the future!

New Rates and Expectations

We love our clients and employees.

It is important to us that HAH has only the hardest-working, most reliable, and professional housewives representing our company. While we offer many benefits to our employees as a company, if we are not competitive with pay, we will continue to lose our best employees to higher paying jobs that are less physically demanding. 

Besides that, many of our housewives are relying on tips to make ends meet... and we don't believe it is fair to them or you.

We want to make sure tips are over and above what they do on a regular basis. If someone tips, it is because you appreciate their hard work.

You will see many positive changes in your service as well.
We'll announce those in coming weeks.

The first wave of new rates goes into effect December 15th for clients who book a one-time or recurring appointment that takes place after that date.

Clients who are already set up with recurring appointments (weekly, bi-weekly, etc.) by that date will continue at our current rate until January 15th.

Clients who are already set up with recurring appointments by Dec 15th and who pay in advance via PayPal will continue at their current rate until January 31st.

Starting Dec. 15th our regular rate is $35/hr.
The rate for >10hr blocks of time is $32/hr when prepaid through PayPal.  

If you are a new customer, lock in the old rate for an extra month by signing up for regular service now (a month and a half if you prepay through PayPal.)
Also, gift certificates are good for one year. If you buy them at the current rate of $25/hr... they are still good for the same number of hours next year!

We also have some great new packages coming to better serve our clients.
Stay tuned for a post about our Ready to Show Ready to Sell program
for clients who are trying to sell their homes.
