Spring is right around the corner and now is the time to think about putting your home on the market. Home sales in the West Chicago Suburbs are up 21% from last year and prices up as much as 10% in some areas. What do you think of when we think of Spring? Flowers and Real Estate!
Now is the time to get the inside ready for the Spring Market. If I could give one one thing for a seller to do before putting there house on the market is to DECLUTTER. Yes! You are moving and the first you need to do is eliminate the clutter. This takes time and energy. It also sounds easier than it is as there are so many memories that can be associated with each object in your home.
Clutter can make a home look and feel disorganized, messy, and stressful. Clutter can also make it difficult to keep your home clean and it tends to snowball as piles of paperwork and other ongoing projects are moved from room to room to make space for, well, more clutter. The desk seems to be the place where much of your clutter piles up.
Reducing clutter is a way for your home and life to feel cleaner, better organized, and more manageable. Do not wait until you are getting ready to sell to reduce the clutter. Start now and get a jump on it and enjoy a clutter free home!
