Moving can be stressful. But the process can be a lot easier than you think. Here are some tips to help you relax:
#1 Get Started
For most people, their home is their largest asset. Maximizing the selling price is very important. You can’t control the market or the interest rates, but you can control how ready your house is to go on the market. The best thing to do is start now, even if you’re not planning to move right away.
#2 Make Minor Repairs
You may not want to invest in a new kitchen or bathroom. But you can easily make simple, inexpensive fixes that can address issues that look more serious than they really are. Replace broken glass, change outdated light fixtures, fix leaky faucets, and remove or repair peeling paint and wallpaper.
#3 Declutter Room-by-Room
You didn’t build up the clutter in your home in a day — and you can’t remove it that quickly, either. Working room-by-room will help you make progress without feeling overwhelmed. Only keep items you love and use!
#4 Make Decisions
What should you keep, give away, discard or sell? To make the decision easier, ask yourself these questions: What is in the way? What is most useful? What holds the most meaning for me?
