Thinking about moving this year?
There are several things you can do to prepare your house now to sell in the spring ranging in price from a little elbow grease to a full kitchen renovation.
Elbow Grease Ideas:
- De-clutter: There’s no better time than the New Year to start going through your closets and cupboards. Get rid of the clothes you won’t wear, the canned goods you won’t eat and anything else you won’t use.
- Pack up seasonal things: Start boxing up Christmas decorations, or anything you won’t need for the next four months or more. If you are thinking about moving in the spring, then you won’t need your summer clothes until you move anyway.
- Organize: After you’ve decided what you are keeping in your cupboards, don’t just throw them back in there. Put things back in a tidy organized fashion.
- Deep clean: While you have everything pulled out dust the corners, wipe the edges and vacuum, you might need a fresh coat of paint in rooms, if so – this would be the time to do it.
