How to Declutter Your Home Before the Sale

Are you planning to sell your home fast? If so, taking time to declutter the house will help it sell faster. It might seem tedious, especially when you are still living in the house. But it is the most ignored pre-sale activity. A neat and clean house looks impressive to a potential buyer and helps organize your move to the new home. If you are looking to sell a house fast, use these tips to declutter your home before putting it up for sale.

1. The Entrance

First impressions are lasting impressions, and this truth goes for selling your home too. Clean the front porch by scrubbing the tiles, removing extra furniture, and discarding additional decorations. Look at placing low-maintenance plants to give it a homely feel. The hallway by the entrance door is usually a dumping zone for jackets, hats, shoes, bags, and other personal items. Use a closet to store these handy belongings to keep the corridor from looking cluttered.

2. Living Room

In many homes, the living room is the heart of the house. You might want to put away the extra chairs or large furniture to showcase the space available. Children’s toys or pet items should be stored in the closet or decorative box. Personal photos should also be packed away. You are looking at showcasing the house, and personal decorations can limit the understanding of the house to a buyer.

3. Bedroom

Bedrooms are probably the hardest to declutter because they often contain many personal belongings. Pack seasonal clothes and outfits you don’t often wear into boxes. Clothes should be neatly hung in the closet. Tidy up the dresser, side tables, and any other furniture you may have to make the room look spacious. Kids’ rooms are more hard to clean up. Sort their toys, books, and other non-essential items into boxes and store them in the garage.

4. Kitchen

If you are thinking, “I need to sell my house fast and move into my new house”, get working on the kitchen. A messy or cluttered kitchen can be a big turn-off. Keep the kitchen counter free of appliances other than essential ones like a coffee maker. Clean out the cabinets and stock them with daily-use items only. Give all the surface areas a good scrub to make them look shiny and clean.

5. Garage

The garage also needs to go through decluttering as a potential buyer will be looking for storage space. Be practical in keeping things you need and donate or discard what you don’t want to keep. Showing enough space for storage in the garage can influence the sale!
