Investment Return is High on De-Cluttering Project

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Options - Oh My!

 

I was researching topics and ran across this; spending money to clean and de-clutter your home can bring a return of 578% on your investment. This statistic supports what I teach my clients. Many people hesitate to invest their time and money in cleaning and de -cluttering. A high percentage of Real Estate Agents recommend their clients invest in this type of project. Out of all the home repair projects you can invest your time, energy and money in, you can get the highest percentage return with this project.

So, let's run some figures. You spend $400.00 on this project; at the 578% return mark you could get an increase in the price of your home of a nice $2,312.00. Not a bad investment of your time, energy and money.

An absolute no brainer you would think but it is not. Not everyone thinks this way. An awesome idea. Thanks, Keith

Beth:  This is such a great point!  In this market, if a seller refuses to be realistic on price AND de-cluttering/staging, we will not take the listing.  I hate to be so hard-shelled, but have learned the hard way that if we are not, everyone ends up unhappy and the home is never sold.  Then they drop the price, stage the home and re-list with another REALTOR(R) and it sells.  And who gets blamed?  REALTOR(R) number one of course.  Just won't do that any more...
