So if you’re intending to sell your home it’s time to invest some time into de-cluttering. Mess, chaos and clutter are some of the biggest turn offs for buyers when looking to purchase their next home or investment property.
Below are some of our top tips to consider when you are looking to shed some layers and de-clutter your property.
Sort your belonging in to three categories – TAKE, DONTATE & TOSS. Charities are extremely appreciative of all donations made. Garage sales are also another great way to get rid of things that you no longer need and get some extra spending money as well. As the saying goes – ‘one man’s trash is another mans treasure’.
Clear surfaces, empty cupboards de-clutter shelves. Let the buyers see your bench tops, walls and cupboard space. A big pet hate of myself and Sarah’s is fridge and freezer clutter. Remove all magnets and paperwork to leave magnetic surfaces clear. Don’t just shove items into another cupboard or space. Apply the same three rules; take, donate and toss. Overflowing cupboards and draws give the impression that your house lacks storage space.
Family and friends can make this chore enjoyable and save you a lot of time as well. But if you are really struggling and need some professional advice there are local experts within this field that will give you a road map to set you on the right track.
