Do you have traumatic memories of your parents telling you to clean your room? Most of us do. What we do with that parental training often shows up in the way we keep our house as adults. Whether you’re a messy person or a neat person, we’re happy to help you out. However, there are significant benefits to keeping your home free from clutter throughout the listing period.
A big part of attracting prospective buyers is to get them to imagine themselves living in the house. It can be difficult for them to do that if they’re not seeing the whole picture. They may see clutter and imagine that there isn’t enough storage space for all of their stuff. Or, they might even assume that the clutter could be hiding significant issues that they’d have to repair. And, clutter can make your home appear smaller than it actually is. For these and other reasons, it may be a good idea to keep the place clutter-free when you’re trying to sell it.
