Clean Out Your Closets

Posted by

When selling your home, it’s often the small things that make a huge difference. Storage can be a critical factor for buyers so here are two simple tips that will make your home seem larger:

  • Remove at least half of all items from closets, shelves and cupboards so they appear larger and get rid of anything on the floor. Use the same matching hangers (no wire!) throughout.

  • Organize the remaining items so your closets and cupboards look tidier. Make sure to neatly fold up towels and linens and use attractive bins and boxes to organize any loose items.

The points above may seem obvious but they’re often overlooked. Remember that storage space sells and if buyers see your closets bursting at the seams, they’ll assume your home isn’t big enough for you or for them.
