- Declutter. People fill their homes with stuff all over the place. Practically no surface is blank or bare. And, that’s not a good thing when it comes to selling a home. So, declutter every room, leaving only the essentials.
- Depersonalize. A hard fact home sellers don’t like to face is that buyers are interested in the seller’s’ lives. They are only interested in their own lives. So, depersonalize each and every room.
- Organize. Go room by room and begin to separate out what you will no longer keep. This not only helps you to have less to deal with, but also, cuts down on moving costs.
- Put pets and pet items away. Far away is best, like at a family member’s house, a neighbor, coworker, or even board them. Pets are a big turnoff to buyers, not because they don’t like animals, but because of pet stains and damage.
