Declutter Your Home.
Ensuring that your home is free of clutter is a key factor in making your home more saleable. You should break this down to each room and follow a decluttering strategy. Firstly make sure you have storage boxes, bin bags, and a duster and polish. Start at one corner of the room, and work your way round. If you have something you do not use or need, then either bin it in the bag, or put it in the storage box, keep your ornaments to a minimum, and as you go round, dust and polish everything. The key is to reduce the amount of clutter in the room as well as deep clean at the same time. Be brutal, having a clutter free home not only makes it more saleable but also more pleasant to live in.
