De-Clutter De-Personalize to SHOWCASE your home

A home filled with clutter or too much furniture distracts buyers from seeing how they can utilize the space your home offers.  If you have limited storage space, you may want to consider renting a temporary storage unit to place items you wish to keep. The best ways to declutter your home include:

>>>>Garage Sale:  Prepare for your move, getting rid of unnecessary items

<<<<Remove Clutter:  Books, magazines, toys, tools supplies and unused items from counter tops, open shelves, storage closets, garage and basements. *** DONATE reading materials to your local library ***

>>>>De-Season your closet.  Storing out-of-season clothing and showed out of sight to make bedroom closets seem roomier (consider under-the-bed sweater storage boxes)

>>>>Remove visibly damaged furniture.  May be perfect for a garage sale!
<<<<Organize. Organize. Organize:  Bookshelves, closets, cabinets and pantries.  Buyers will inspect EVERYTHING! Organize to look LARGER 

>>>>De-personalize: Pack personal photographs, unless they showcase the home. Let the buyers 'see' themselves in your home.  A good 'rule-of-thumb' is ONE personal/family photo per room.
