Selling Your Home? Decluttering helps sell homes faster and for a better price.
One of the top reasons for a home not selling is clutter. Buyers want to visualize themselves in the home. If there is too much clutter, personal items, knick knacks, or mess, buyers will have a hard time seeing themselves living there.
I specialize in decluttering homes, organizing, cleaning and packing to prepare your home for sale.
How Can This Benefit You?
A decluttered house is more appealing to your buyers. Fewer personal items and a clean, organized house allows the buyer to envision what they would do with the space to make it their own.
Most buyers are looking for a home with lots of space. If your listing is crammed full of “stuff”, the buyers perceive a very limited amount of space for themselves. Space Sells!
An organized home makes for much better photos for your realtor to post, thereby drawing in more potential buyers.
A clean and organized home allows you to get the maximum sales price and will sell more quickly.
Decluttering helps you to sort through and eliminate any items you no longer need/want
Decluttering is also the beginning of the packing process. By clearing all the items that are rarely used, we start you on the road to packing up your home prior to your move.
As we begin going through your home: sorting, eliminating and packing, the emotional attachment you feel for your current home changes and you will begin to get more excited by the prospect of moving into your new home.
A beautifully organized pantry, closet, bathroom, living room, etc…excites your potential buyers as they begin to see themselves putting their belongings there.
Clearing off kitchen and bathroom counters showcases all the use-able work space available.
Pack up all those never or rarely used appliances, pots and pans, extra dishes, utensils etc.
Pack up all off season clothes to show how big those closets really are.
Pack excessive linen, towels, sheets, etc to maximize the effect of a large linen closet.
Family photos should be limited to just a few. The rest plus photo albums can be packed in advance of your move.
Tons of books, DVDs, albums, CDs? Keep a few of each, your favorites, but the rest should be packed and stored for later.
Too much artwork on the walls or around the house. Keep it simple. Less is more.
If the refrigerator in covered with kids homework and art work, it is time to take the majority down. We can create files for later.
Accent pillows, knick knacks, collections should be packed. Leave only a few items for décor.
Kids? Limit the number of toys in view. Keep their favorite, but make sure you have a designated space to put them away. If not, keep a bin or basket handy so you can easily collect them before a potential buyer arrives.
