Three Pre-Selling Purging Tips for Charlotte Home Sellers
Are you thinking about selling your Charlotte home? While the prospect of moving is undoubtedly exciting, you may be dreading the thought of having to pack everything. Let’s explore three tips for purging old, unwanted or forgotten items before listing your home.
Sort, Sort, Sort
The first step you will want to take is to sort everything in your home. Many sellers go through the house, room-by-room, separating the must-have items from everything else. At first, this process is quick & painless as there are many items just sitting around screaming to be discarded. However, once you dig a little deeper, you will find some older keepsakes that are much harder to let go. Keep those items that are important to you and let the rest go!
Virtual Yard Sales and Consignment
Now that you have everything in your home sorted, it's time to host a yard sale - virtually! You can run online yard sale ads through web and app-based classifieds; there are a ton of ‘yard sale’ Facebook pages and if you search, you’ll likely find one in your area.
You may also want to consider checking with local consignment shops to see if they'll take some of your unwanted items. A consignment store will sell your items for you and keep a portion of the sale price as a fee. This can be a useful option if you have antiques or other goods that are in demand with consignment store shoppers.
Donate the Rest
Now it's time to hand over this last bit of unwanted clothing, furniture, or appliances to your local charities. Many charitable organizations will come to you to pick up your unwanted items, saving you from having to drop it off. Call your charity of choice and see if they accept donations. If not, they will be able to refer you to other local organizations who do as many of them work together.
Purging your older or unwanted items is a surefire way to make your move easier. If you're in the market to list your Charlotte home, or for more information about the local real estate market, we're here for you.
