Getting Ready to Move? Get Organized First
If you are selling your Decatur GA home or plan to move within a year, get organized. It matters because the less you have to move, the better. Most of us have more stuff than we'll ever need.
First things first, if you haven't finished unpacking from the last time you moved, you really need to think about why you're taking that box with you again. Clear it out, sell it, donate it, just don't move it to your new home if you never use it or even bothered to unpack it. I was talking … (9 comments)

decatur ga real estate: What was this Builder Thinking? - 09/11/09 01:40 PM
Yesterday I was showing homes in Atlanta GA and we pulled up to this one that was for sale. At first glance it looked odd to me, something was off.

Clutter, it's what makes real estate agents and home buyers shudder... Clutter is distracting to home buyers and they tend to notice that more than the house itself.

If you have a lot of clothes, try thinning out your closet by removing your winter stuff in summer and summer stuff in winter. If the season has passed and you didn't wear something, try getting rid of it. (This rule … (4 comments)
