Storage space within a home is a huge selling point. It’s something that many buyers value and most will want to see before making a serious offer. Before you’re ready to start showing your home, there are a few changes that will make these key areas more appealing.
Closets and cabinets are prone to collect clutter over the years. As people walk through, they’ll likely open doors and cupboards to imagine how their belongings will fit into the space. Make sure that, before you bring prospective buyers into your home, you’ve cleaned out these areas.
Closets Full of Clothes
If you’re not completely packed and moved out of your home, you probably have clothes hanging in the closets. This isn’t a bad thing as prospective buyers will benefit from seeing how storage spaces work practically. However, make sure that the clothes are hanging nicely and that there are no piles of shoes or other accessories on the floor.
Cabinets Free of Clutter
Like the closets, cabinets can easily become cluttered and messy. Don’t be afraid to leave a set of dishes in the cupboard or some saline solution in the medicine cabinet. These items make the space appear welcoming and livable.
If you do choose to leave a few small items in the cabinets and cupboards, make sure that they look nice. Get rid of the globby toothpaste, and pack away chipped, mismatched dishes.
Make sure you walk through your home with a buyer’s eye. Imagine opening the cabinets and peeking into the closets for the first time. Staging a home doesn’t always mean buying new decorations or prop electronics. You already have many of the things that make any home livable. Now, you just need to be selective and arrange them in a clean, careful manner.
