One of the biggest decisions you make in life is to sell a home. It can be a bit scary, but I will be guiding you through the entire journey. I will be sending you some tips on how to get your home ready for showing. If I can answer any questions, please let me know.
Tip #1: Declutter
When a potential homebuyer walks into your home, you want them to feel at home. Start by clearing the clutter.
Go room by room and pack up items you don’t use regularly. Take unused or no longer needed items to a donation center or throw them away. Keep in mind, if you haven’t used something in over a year, you probably no longer need it.
For items you will need, but not on a daily basis, ensure they are stored and organized in a hidden location such as a pantry, cabinet, closet or drawers. Store the items you packed for later somewhere off-site or arrange them in an orderly manner in the garage. Do your best to clear off countertops, tabletops, and shelves.
Removing the clutter will make it easier for prospective buyers to envision themselves in your home and also give you a head start for packing for your next move.
