Are you thinking of selling your home here in North Myrtle Beach soon? It’s always exciting when it comes to selling a first home or downsizing homes, but packing isn’t exciting. As you prepare your home for North Beach Realty to help sell your home, it may be time to start getting rid of things. We have the top 4 things to eliminate before listing your house below.
Items You Haven’t Used in Over a Year
We’ve all heard from our parents growing up that if you haven’t used or worn it, it may be time to get rid of it. Well, believe it or not, your parents were right on that exact theory. We all may have that sentimental items or items we may want to keep, but what about that ironing board you meant to use but didn’t? Or what about those clothes you saved thinking you’d wear them, but they are still hanging in your closet untouched? Instead of packing these unused items, why not just get rid of them? Sell them online, give them away to friends, or donate.
Yes, we have all taken things home that may have been free because we thought, why not. But instead of lugging them to your new home, just get rid of them. That includes the toiletries you got from your honeymoon ten years ago or your free swag bag when you went to a festival. These items are replaceable; you do not need to hang on to them. Just toss them in the trash or donate them.
Do you have a junk drawer in your kitchen or bathroom that keeps collecting junk? Most people with busy lives have at least one if not multiple, junk drawers. And for the most part, the drawers are random odds and ends that may not go to anything. Of course, the junk drawer may have important things, but to get your home ready to list, just trash most of that junk.
If It’s Broken, Just Throw it Away
Over the years, we often hang on to things we think we can fix, but in most cases, we can’t. If a chair is missing a spindle or that stool looks broken, throw it out. Go through the house while cleaning and organizing and see what you can keep vs. what is trash. This includes your garage because we are all guilty of owning something we say we’ll fix, but we never make time to do so. Take all your broken things to the dump, where you can put them where it belongs.
There are so many other things you can eliminate in your home to prepare you to list your home, but we wanted to share these with you. When you’re ready to start the selling process of your North Myrtle Beach home, give us a call! We are here, ready for you when you are!
