It’s hard to believe that is Christmas only a month away, which also means that the busiest time for real estate is just around the corner. Will your home ready to sell when the New Year comes along?
Before the bustling holiday season gets underway, now is the perfect time to take a walk around your home. Take an honest look. Do you really need the dried flower arrangement your kids made for you in 1995? Has the paint seen better days? Have knick-knacks and kitchenware taken over your countertops?
The old saying, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression,” is never more true than when you decide to put your home on the market. Did you know that a cluttered home makes your home appear smaller? Not only does that leave a negative effect on buyers, it will probably have a negative impact on OFFERS!
Don’t try to do it all at once, take it step-by-step, and room-by-room. The upside is knowing you won’t have to pack, store or move the things that don’t fit with your new home. Let your digital camera be your friend – take a picture of the things you can’t seem to let go; it lasts longer and takes up less space.
Still can’t part with those “seen better days” mementos? Overwhelmed? There are people who can help you and I know where they are!
