A cluttered room can be a major turnoff to potential homebuyers so if you’re thinking about selling then it’s time to start clearing out your excess junk.
There’s no denying that de-cluttering isn’t the most fun thing to do, but it will help improve a property’s appearance and make things easier for sellers when they eventually move.
Ultimately, de-cluttering can also help maximise a property’s selling price so start shedding all those layers and get started on de-cluttering as soon as possible.
Take it a room at a time
De-cluttering a lifetime’s worth of items can be daunting, so start small. Choose a small room in the house and simply make a start. Once you start you might find yourself on a roll and ready to face larger rooms.
Go through every nook and cranny
Clutter tends to accumulate in all sorts of spaces so make the effort to look in every corner, cupboard and drawer to find hidden treasures you’d forgotten about. Don’t leave any stone unturned because there is a chance that buyers will look in these areas at property inspections.
Throw away items you won’t need
Get rid of anything you don’t intend taking with you when you move. There’s no point holding onto things you won’t be keeping anyway. It’s also a good idea to start packing away personal items and anything else that you won’t be using until you move to your next home.
Store things away from the home
If you can’t bring yourself to throw anything away then consider storing excess items away from the home. Hiring a storage unit can be a great solution and best of all you will be packed up and ready for when you move.
