Decluttering Tips That Will Make Your Life Easier
You are told to declutter your home for events such as the professional pictures, open houses and showings. What is decluttering? Decluttering is removing anything from the house that has no important value in daily life. We all have many items around our homes that have not been used in some time. These are the items that should be removed. A great example is electronics. How many are actually in use? Do you have any older electronics that actually aren't even working anymore? If so, remove them!
The process of decluttering may seem very overwhelming. Randi and Tracy's advice to you is to take it one room at a time. One day focus on your kitchen. Remove miscellaneous items from your counter tops, remove magnets off of the refrigerator, and make sure the room looks inviting and clutter-free. Repeat this with each room of your house. Tracy's biggest tip is: when in doubt, take it out! An important thing to realize is that most buyers will be opening up closets, cabinets, pantries and the like to check the space and capacity. If objects are crowded or falling out it appears to lack space. You must make your house look spacious.
As you're decluttering you may decide to have a garage sale, which Randi and Tracy think is a great idea! However, their rule is once an item is moved to the "garage sale pile," it should not be moved back into the house. Items that did not sell in the garage sale can be given away, donated or thrown out.
