Real estate agents everywhere suggest that home sellers could benefit from and get a larger return on investment by doing little do-it-yourself projects around the house. There are many little things you can do to spruce up your home and make it more appealing. You can do things like updating lighting, home staging, shampooing carpets, and cleaning and decluttering!
Based on a nationwide survey, the #1 home improvement recommendation is to clean and declutter your home. You can even donate all those bags and boxes of miscellaneous items to the local Salvation Army or Goodwill. Not only will the organizing and cleaning help your home look more attractive to potential buyers, but you will even save money on the transition out of your home when it sells.
If you hire a moving company to move you out of the home, then they will literally be moving less ‘stuff.’ Since you will have already sorted through the items you don’t want, you won’t be paying anyone to move possessions that you had meant to get rid of beforehand (or had forgotten about). Regardless of the moving company’s method of calculating your move – weight, time or a per-item charge – you will benefit greatly and save money on the cost of your move. It is definitely a win-win situation.
Have a GREAT DAY cleaning, de-cluttering, and MOVING!
