The thought of moving can be overwhelming for many people. There’s a lot of things to do and so many matters to attend to, that a lot of people wind up just staying in the same place even if they don’t like it. Fortunately, there are things you can do to make the move possible and stress-free. Here are some tips from professional organizers that you might find useful.
Declutter Your Home
Pair down the furniture, décor, clutter as well as family pictures you have displayed to a certain amount that makes the place feel more inviting and open. Declutter closets and cabinets of excess items so you can make a more spacious feeling. Be sure that the entry way is free of clutter and can be navigated easily.
Create A Timeline
Check your home records and come up with a list of major home remodels or repairs that you have done to your house that you could leave on the table for those who wish to see the house. Make sure to include the dates the upgrades and work were accomplished. Having a summary like this will tell potential home buyers right away that you took great care of your house.
Show Seasonal Pictures
In case you are selling your house during the winter, make sure to leave photos of the house as to how it looks during fall, summer, or spring so that potential homebuyers can see how the house looks when everything is in bloom.
Corral Clutter Using A Laundry Basket
It is also a good idea to have a laundry basket by the door so that you can easily get whatever clutter is strewn about for any last minute showings. You could simply toss the laundry basket in your car’s trunk once you leave.
Prepack Your Excess
You should also invest in moving boxes so you could pack things that you seldom use or have too much of well before you even list the house. Some good examples are toys, excess décor, or decorations.
A professional organizer said that it’s a good idea to get rid of all unnecessary things rather than just pay to move things that you never use. However, if you are holding on to excess things, you can put it in a box, keep it in the basement or other storage place that you may have.
Deal With Home Improvement Projects
Create a list of things that has to be repaired or improved so your house will look better. This could mean painting and patching nail holes, trimming the back bushes, or replacing a piece of cracked file. The, allot some time to get these projects done or hire a general contractor to take care of them for you.
