The number one way you can sell your house for the max asking price will surprise you.
Are you leaving money behind?
Being a professional organizer and coach brings me into contact with many people who are selling their homes. While I am not a real estate agent, I have bought two homes, sold 2 homes, been a landlord, and I’ve helped countless family members and clients sell homes. So, I have a ton of personal and professional experience when it comes to leaving the closing with as much money as possible. And…, I’ve seen some rookie mistakes, which you do not need to repeat.
Once the family realized they were not getting any offers and the list price was dropping every week, they got serious about selling. They contracted new agents, who advised them to declutter immediately. Personal items got packed quickly and dated décor was removed. They had a week to get the rooms into shape before holding another open house at a further reduced list price.
They received an offer right after the open house. Decluttering was the key to getting this house sold. So how do you avoid all this drama and more importantly, make as much profit as possible when selling your home?
When a house is disorganized & has piles of stuff, it creates the impression that bigger problems are lurking. That’s an impression no seller wants to give a buyer. Instead, a decluttered home gives the impression the house is spacious with plenty of storage. It makes a home appear more upscale. Buyers will see the strongest features of the space and imagine living there with all their belongings neatly stored away.
Decluttered homes sell faster, too, since they are appealing. Plus, decluttering what you won’t be taking with you is a major savings on moving costs. It will cut down the amount of supplies needed and the time it will take movers to transport everything. Getting rid of all the extra stuff in your home has so many benefits when preparing to sell and move.
