Tips To Sell Your Home
6 Ideas to help you get organized not!
1.) Remove the clutter and stop adding to it. If your routine is to purchase multiples of sale items, stop! Or, if these are items you use all the tim, reduce the number of multiple items to no more than you will use in a month or so. The more room you have on your shelves and in your closets the less cluttered your home will look.
2.) You need to have a plan where things are going to go or be stored during the listing period. Set aside boxes or bags to handle items you plan to give to charity, family members or sell at a garage sale.
3.) Baby steps; take small steps and choose one manageable task at a time. With smaller tasks you will have a greater success rate of completion and not be overwhelmed by larger daunting tasks such as cleaning out an attic or garage. Pick a drawer, closet, medicine cabinet, shelving or boxes that have been packed and not seen the light of day for years. Just complete one task a day or every other day.
4.) You'll need to create piles or groups of things for charity, keeping or disposal...deal with those items and don't look back.
5.) We all tend to collect lots of paperwork, find a way to organize or eliminate it. There are important papers that we need such as: birth and marriage certificates, contracts, etc., however, some things can be kept digitally in much less space. Consider an organizing scanner that can scan receipts, bills, business cards, etc.
6.) If you have things that you no longer use then get rid of them. I know people who keep things for years without use just because a family member gave it to them. If you're still storing that Wok given to you by an Aunt or Uncle years ago and you never use it then donate it to charity or have a garage sale. You can always create a virtual scrapbook of things that have a sentimental value that were received as a gift and who gifted them...write a special memory about the giver and let go...you need the space!
Organizing is just the first step toward preparing to sell your home.
