Spring is here, and your mind turns to spring cleaning. If you’re planning to sell your home in the next few months, spring cleaning is more important than ever.
Begin by clearing out the clutter. Throw out old magazines, newspapers and junk mail that may have become stacked up in a corner. After you’ve accomplished decluttering, look around to see if your home looks appealing to a potential buyer. Remember, your collections of glassware, dolls or stuffed animals are taking up space, and space is what everyone is looking for. Prospective buyers want to see how their things will fit into your house.
Do you have too much furniture? Can you see the walls and the floor? If not, consider moving some pieces out to a storage unit.
Don’t forget to check out your closets. If they’re filled with clothes and shoes you no longer need or wear, donate to a charity that can use them.
When these tasks have been accomplished, clean, clean, clean. You want your place to sparkle and catch the eye of a buyer right away. Think how happy you’ll be when your house has sold for the right price, and you can move on to your next location.
