Selling your house is considered one of the most stressful events of a person's life. Whatever you put it on the market because it is time to upgrade to something larger and nice, or whatever you are starting your life over again and you need a new place to live, it can create havoc in your life. Not only are you trying to get rid of the old house, you are shopping for a new place to live. Add to that having to keep your space constantly ready for visitors, financial issues, and fitting in everyday life, and you have the ingredients for being overwhelmed. Instead of letting this hectic time get the best of you, relax and try to get organized. Whether you are selling your home or you are shopping for homes for sale, it does not have to be a frustrating, stressful time. Get your ducks in order and do your best to enjoy the experience.
The first thing you need to do is get your curren residence in order. If you have lived there for any amount of time, you have no doubt built up a collection of things that may have worn out their welcome. Take a few weekends to go through closets, pantries, cabinets, and hidden nooks. Purge everything from them you no longer need. If you are in doubt, consider what you will want in your new house. If something has bad memories attached to it, it is better to toss it. If you think your style will change or you will want a replacement item, pitch the current one. However, if the budget is tight, it may be better to hold on to as much as possible of the necessary items. At least that way, you will have what you need once you have moved. If you choose to replace it once the move is done, no big deal.
Once the purging is done, decide what needs fixing. If there are little projects like burnt out lightbulbs or uncoated outlet covers, spend one weekend getting these things taken care of. Then determine what rooms need freshening up. You probably will not want to invest in too many brand new items that you will leave behind. However, investing a few thousand dollars into giving your house a new look could bring big returns. Add a fresh, neutral coat of paint to the rooms and the exterior. Clean the carpets, add some shrubbery or plants outdoors, and keep everything in spotless condition during the sales process.
Finally, before putting your house on the market, remove as many personal items as possible. While cut photos of the kids may appeal to some people, others will view the space as your house. You need potential buyers to be able to envision themselves in the space. Make sure the environment is warm and inviting, but not specifically designed with your family in mind. Once you have made a few changes and spruced things up, you will be ready to sell your house.
