When preparing to put your house on the market, you need to ensure that your home is not cluttered with all of your belongings first. Here are some top tips on what to put in storage when selling your home and where to put your belongings.
What to put in storage
- Personal pictures and souvenirs: It is important to have a few well-placed pictures to make your house a “show home” but avoid having endless family photos and personalised pictures. Remember, prospective buyers are looking for their home, not yours
- Spare items: Anything you don’t use on a daily basis that can help get rid of clutter
- Kitchware: Try to keep the kitchen neutral and have clear work surface for people to view
- Clothes: We all have a lot of clothes in our cupboards that we don’t wear. Take this opportunity to sort out your cupboards and show off some free space in your home
