Clearing The Clutter
As you prepare your house for sale, think of it as a product. It may take some de-personalization and de-cluttering of your home to make it “buyer ready”. In order to market your home in such a way that it appeals to the largest possible number of potential buyers, clearing the clutter will be crucial. Potential buyers want to picture themselves in your house when they walk in. De-cluttering means going through every room and removing personal items and any unorganized mess from view of buyers. Taking the time to do this step will be well worth the effort when your home sells.
