Decluttering your home for selling? - knowing when to stop is the key

When styling your home for sale, decluttering is one of the easiest things you can do to improve the look, feel and flow of the property. Decluttering can be achieved for little or no cost and will immediately improve the property’s appeal to buyers. Knowing when to stop, however, sometimes gets lost in the process. Removing too much from the home will result in a property that lacks personality and life.

The aim is to market a home that feels spacious and welcoming, not empty and clinical. Here’s some tips to help you find the balance:

The ‘no brainer’ items

These items can be boxed up and safely removed to off-site storage.

Cricket Stumps

The ‘consider carefully’ items

These items should enhance the space and are used to highlight the home’s features. If you are unsure about what to keep and what to remove, you may like to get some advice from a professional Home Stager.

*A special note about books and Accessories

Pile of Books

An overcrowded book shelf is the most common thing I see during consultations. Overcrowded shelves and cupboards give buyers the impression that there is not enough storage space. Select display items carefully to create the impression of space while keeping a lived in, homely feel.
