Benefits of De-Cluttering

Home Stager with Parker House Designs

When you are selling a home, it is important to do all that you can to help your property stand out among the competition.  The adage that "you never get a second chance to make a first impression" most certainly applies to the Real Estate market.

It may surprise you to know that only 10% of all potential buyers that walk through your home can see beyond your personal effects and clutter.  In fact, these distractions could be enough for the buyer to pass on making an offer. 

Packing up rarely used items, personal collections and pictures can make a big difference in how the home "shows".   The benefits of de-cluttering include reducing your amount of packing when it is time to move and that you create a clutter-free, welcoming environment that will allows buyers to envision themselves living in the space.

Keep in mind that a buyer will make a decision about your home within the first 15 seconds of a showing so make sure that the first impression is a memorable one.

I agree. You can never have a house too clean for a showing. Plus a clean house shows you are a motivated seller! I think everyone always hears about "curb appeal" but often overlook cleaning the interior.
