Tips for a quick declutter of your house before selling

Selling a home requires a lot of papyrology and care, which means that you have to spend some time and energy. One of the things you have to do with your house before selling it is to declutter it. However, since you have already spent a lot of time and energy on other things, you might not have enough time to declutter your home properly. So, how to do a quick declutter of your home before you have to hand your keys over to your buyer? Let’s find out!

Make a system if you want to do a quick declutter of your home

Before you start decluttering your home, you have to decide how you are going to do just that. Different people have different systems of decluttering, and not one is more effective than the other. However, it is important to have a system.

If you want to successfully do a quick declutter of your house, make sure to have a system.

Some people go room by room. That way you’ll know what goes where when you transport your stuff to another location. However, if you don’t have the time to declutter your home, you don’t have to do it yourself! There is always an option to hire professionals to do that for you. They will follow your instructions, and almost certainly they’ll do a better job than you would. No offense.

Also, you can separate your useless belongings into three groups. Why is that important we are going to see in our next tip!

Sell, donate or throw away

There is a way to get some extra money for your relocation. You can sell some of your stuff. Unfortunately, a backyard sale is a thing of the past in 2020 because of the COVID pandemic, and your only option is to sell your stuff online.

But if you don’t want to sell your stuff, you can always donate them. Donation is a very humane act of giving, and there is probably at least one donation center near you. With this, you may not increase the value of your property, but you’ll increase the value of you as a human.

If you are left with some stuff that you can neither sell nor donate, you can always throw away some of your stuff. Just be careful of how you are disposing of your stuff. Make sure to follow your local government’s instructions on how to dispose of trash.

Make sure to hire a moving company and a storage unit

You probably won’t have enough space in your vehicle to move all of your stuff at once. This is exactly the reason why moving companies exist. Make sure to hire a good moving company for your clutter. You’ll especially need them if you decide to sell your house during the winter.

Also, if you don’t have enough room in your new home, it might not be a bad idea to rent a storage unit. The best option is to hire a moving company that has storage capabilities too.
