A clutter-free home without moving boxes stacked in the bedrooms, halls, garage, and basement makes for an ideal listing. You can easily show off a prepared home where all the extras have been removed. Your listing photos look great and you typically attract a buyer quickly.
Of any of the tasks a homeowner can tackle to ready their home, de-cluttering and cleaning have the biggest impact for the smallest investment according to the HomeGain Blog.
Here are the benefits of packing now, leading to the ultimate benefit; a sold home!
- You've already made the decision to move so packing is inevitable. A de-cluttered house is easier to sell, so why wait to pack as much as possible?
- Early packing can save time and the stress of having to pack everything right before the moving truck arrives.
- The cost of off-site storage can be offset by the shorter period of time that it takes a clutter-free home to sell.
- If paying for off-site storage isn't in your budget, ask a friend or relative for storage space so packed boxes can be removed from the house.
