Selling Your Home

My friend Meagan Miller posted an image (below) on her real estate social media page recently. She added “#1 call me” before “de-clutter.” As a professional organizer, and as someone who has been on the house hunt and seen some g-r-o-s-s and super cluttered homes that somehow were for sale, I’d like to say a resounding “YES” to this. Yes, call your favorite realtor (don’t have one, let me know and I’ll suggest a few). Yes, deep clean. Yes, complete repairs. Yes, boost curb appeal.

And, yes, yes, yes declutter your home! This is not just for the sake of the sale. This is for your sanity. I’m wrapping up a move-in this week that started as a declutter-before-they-move. It has been life-changing for this family. They had moved several times before, cross states even, but hadn’t really thought through what they owned in terms of what the really liked and really found useful.

Taking time to make those decisions which really helped them to get rid of a lot of stuff made the moving-in process so much easier. And doing both parts with me as a professional organizer took even more of a load off!
