When preparing your house for sale, your ultimate goal will be to have potential buyers fall in love with your house and to have this happen, your home needs to be appealing and free of clutter.
Organize, clean, and de-clutter your property to prepare it for potential buyers. A cluttered home isn’t one that’s going to attract buyers. When potential buyers show up, you want them to admire your home rather than the things in your home. Disorganization is distracting and will have their eyes wandering to all the wrong places.
A clean house can show potential buyers the value of your property. There’s nothing that says a property is worth its asking price more than the care that went into the property. Show potential buyers that your property is worth every penny by cleaning thoroughly, organizing efficiently, and reducing clutter.
Help prospective buyers envision themselves living in your house. Clutter can make your home appear small so make sure you tidy up and make your property appealing to prospective buyers. Remember, one of the main things that prospective buyers will be looking out for is square footage. They won’t show up with a tape measure ready to accurately go through each inch of your house, but instead, they’ll let their eyes do the calculating. With furniture in place and appealing decorations, you can help prospective buyers get a sense of what it’ll be like to live there.
What items should you keep, toss, and donate? Of course, you will want to get things organized and reduce the amount of items you have in your home, however, this doesn’t mean that everything needs to make its way to the dumpster. Instead, you can use accents such as mirrors and flower pots as well as lamps and plants to spruce up the appearance of your room. However, in the process of cleaning up, you want to rid your home of all the things that haven’t made their way out of your closet, cupboards, or attic for longer than a couple years. Make a separate pile for items that you want to keep, toss, and donate.
