Three Reasons to Declutter Your Home Before You Sell
Declutter Your House to Sell It Faster
If you are thinking of selling your home, the first thing you should do is unclutter your space.
1. Buyers Want to Imagine Their Lives in Your House
If they walk into your house and are bombarded by walls of photos and collections of items from your travels, they won't be able to visualize themselves in your house. You don't want them to get distracted by items you've collected over the years- you want them to see the features of the house they'll fall in love with.
2. Creating the Illusion of Space Makes Your Home Feel Bigger
Whether you're selling a one bedroom condo or a five bedroom estate, pairing down extra furniture and personal effects makes your space seem bigger. Remember, empty rooms always feel more spacious and allow potential buyers to envision their possessions in the room.
3. First Impressions Matter
Considering most buyers will likely view your home online before they come to see it, you'll want to present a well-staged, clutter free house for them to look at. Do yourself a favor and start packing up the items you don't use every day, this will create more space for your house to shine when buyers come through for showings.
