Clutter and dirt
One of the best techniques to sell a house is to make buyers imagine living in your home and really enjoy it. How do you suppose they can do that if all they see is clutter and dirt?
If you want to sell your property and get a good price for it, you need to get rid of the unnecessary stuff and things you “might” use that’s only gathering dust. Put aside the things you want to keep (better yet, store them in boxes) in a storage area. Start with something everyone has…. the junk drawer. Then continue with other drawers, cabinets, closets that will surely be inspected by home-buyers.
How much to solve: You’ll need boxes to store or move your stuff, which you can probably get for free from the grocery or liquor store. If not, you can buy cheap moving boxes at your local storage-rental place. If you’ve got the elbow-grease covered, the cleaning supplies should not be that expensive. If you want a professional cleaning team, you might have to shell out $300 to $360 for a 2,000-square-foot house with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, or $430 to $530 for a 3,000-square-foot house with four bedrooms and three bathrooms, as per a Homewyse.com report.
