Decluttering your home is an easy thing to do, but could cost you thousands if you fail to do it properly. It’s the number one mistake home sellers make when listing their home.

In today’s market, 97% of buyers start their home search online. That’s where your first showing is. If your home is cluttered when it’s photographed, buyers will quickly pass by it.

Decluttering your home makes it more appealing to buyers.

The first thing we do when we walk into a seller’s house is have them declutter. Start with clearing off the counters, fridge, and other furniture. Take the knick knacks, books, and all other personal items out of the room to give it a more neutral feel.

You’ll be amazed at how your home looks after a bit of elbow grease and decluttering. It won’t look like your home anymore, but you’re moving anyway, right? Preparing your home in this way will help you fetch the highest offer possible.
