Depersonalise your home.
Can You Take ‘You’ Out of Your Home?
It’s one of the most difficult and also critical things to do to prepare your home for sale. So – just for the sale period – you need to pack away things that might create a barrier for the potential buyer as they try to imagine themselves living there.
Target these areas to remove personal items:
- Personal or family photos
- Collections of anything
- Sports memorabilia and trophies
- Awards and certificates
- Personal paperwork and documents
- Personal bathroom items
These items and any furniture that doesn’t support the staging of your home, need to go somewhere.
Property Styling Melbourne Property Stylists have a great deal with a mobile storage provider who will drop a box off at your place and then securely store it for the duration of the sale period.
If you aren’t using a mobile storage provider consider using a commercial storage unit or maybe boxing things up and leaving them in a friend or family member’s garage for a few weeks.
Importantly don’t stash them in the home’s own cupboards and garages, this will only diminish the impact of storing them away in the first place.
