De-clutter Your House First If You Are Planning To Sell It In 2017

Are you planning to move to some other place this year? Well, it is a great idea indeed if you have been living in this locality for quite some time. The world has changed tremendously in the recent past, and you also need a change.  The idea of getting relocated to some other part of London (or outskirts) fascinates you, isn’t it?

Property market showed quite volatility in the year 2016. However, 2017 started in an assuring manner. In such scenario, it is the best time to give a buzz to your property agent and show him the house you want to sell out.

Are you ready for selling the house? Be prepared!

The question may sound absurd if you have decided to go with the idea of selling your property. It is not an illogical question either. In fact, the majority of people who give a classified in the newspapers or social media do not get their property ready for selling.

They start getting calls from potential buyers. Sometimes, buyers step in without even informing. You need to welcome them with a pile of used plats in the sink or a mountain of clothes in the washing area. The whole bedroom is cluttered with toys, books and old newspapers. You show the home to the guests with a sheepish smile. The outcome is very obvious; buyers don’t find it impressive at all!

Don’t let yourself caught in such a shameful situation. Here are some tips to handle the things smartly.

Declutter the house; it is the first and foremost step

By de-cluttering we mean removing all unwanted stuff from the house. Find out the things that you haven’t used in last one year (except those which you need once in a year, e.g. decorative stuff for Christmas).  Have a close look and get rid of them. The more lightweight your house is, the easier it is to keep tidy.

Remember, it is not an easy thing to make the home clutter free. You need to tackle it bit-by-bit. Take a small area first. Dispose of everything that is not needed. Once you are satisfied with it, and then move to another area.

You are selling a home, not a house

What does it mean really? It means the property you are selling should give a homely feeling to the buyers. They should feel that they have discovered the perfect place to live happily. You should create a space that the buyers fall in love with.  Make it lively, warm and incredibly charming. They will surely buy it.

A house is just a structure made from brick and mortar. A home is full of warmth and belongingness. You get positive vibrations as soon as you step in.

Let the year 2017 bring a good fortune to you. Sell out your property at good price and get shifted to a new location. Get ready for new excitement, new experiences and new expectations. The world is full of happiness. Explore and enjoy!
