How to De-Clutter your home, Ready for Selling!

How to get organised.

If you are planning to sell your property it is really important to de-clutter before putting it on the market, this attracts more buyers and interested parties to your property.

No-one likes a cluttered house. It turns buyers off, this makes your house look smaller than what it really is and will not give it that WOW feeling. Buyers want to imagine themselves living in this space and making it their own.

You need to have a plan in place so that you don't feel overwhelmed. I would suggest working your way, room by room through your house this process will make you feel more in control.

Steps to De-Clutter.

I have compiled some tips and tricks you can use to de-clutter your home.

  • Start from one end of the house and make your way to the other.

  • Compile different boxes and label them for example; Keep, Donate, Bin etc.

  • If you have not used an item for 12 months or more get rid of it.

  • Invest in a labeling machine so you can name your items, containers etc

  • Place items in baskets or storage containers and label them so they are easy to find.

  • Organise your linen cupboard by placing all sheets together, placing pillow cases in a basket and so on, this will make things much easier when to go to find an item.
