Today I’d like to share some of my top tips for decluttering, depersonalizing, and ultimately, maximizing the value of your property, and how these steps are key to helping sellers earn top dollar. There are several aspects of depersonalization to keep in mind – everything from the color of the walls and design choices, to removing pictures and decor which are highly personal (portraits, antiques, heirlooms, etc.). The goal here is to create an alluring yet neutral environment, so that your potential buyers will have an easier time envisioning themselves in that space. You don’t want them to feel like they’re entering someone else’s home (even though they are!)
“You should consider decluttering not just the main rooms, but also closets, garages – even the front/back yards.”
Another crucial step is decluttering. While fairly self-explanatory, there are several factors which are often overlooked in this process. Yes, it is always a good idea to clean the home as thoroughly as possible before listing it, or even photographing it. You should consider decluttering not just the main rooms, but also closets, garages – even the front/back yards. The cleaner the space, the more value you will add.
Wherever possible, it’s always a good idea to create clean lines (right angles, minimal decoration, open surfaces). Basically, if you watch HGTV, you’ll want to imitate the look of those homes. Removing unnecessary kitchen appliances off counters, removing refrigerator magnets, and straightening out any diagonally-placed items are a quick/easy way to create clean lines. I hope this article was helpful in explaining why and how decluttering + depersonalizing can be a valuable asset.
