Once you have made the decision to sell your home, it’s a good idea to begin packing away some items. In particular, personal items such as photographs, certificates, medicine and jewellery. Take a look at your home from your buyers perspective.
Here are some ways to depersonalize your space yet keep the feeling of it being your home.
- Remove family photos from frames and take scrapboooking paper, wrapping paper or fabric and place the swatches in the frames. This gives you colour and makes you unique.
- Remove school certificates from your office walls. If you would like to keep something in it’s place, replace it with a map of the area or a fantastic article featuring where you live.
Once you have removed your personal items, now is the time to have your Realtor or ‘critical’ eyed friend stop in and take a tour and give you any more suggestions. It is not easy to remove personal items but it’s a good step to getting your house sold and the sooner you will be in your new home!
