Raise your hand if you've been binge watching The Home Edit?
No need to be ashamed! We all have! Who doesn't want to be more organized?! (Or at least pretend that we have big plans to be!)
Buyers definitely want to see an organized home when they are on the house hunt, so today we are sharing the top 3 spaces to organize first if you are planning on selling. Let's get started!
From lack of storage to spacious laundry areas, the goal is to make this space functional! Simply adding a combination of shelves, baskets, and trays for storage can help organize utility items, extra towels, and cleaning products. If you have the space, incorporate a shoe rack, coat rack and basket for extra accessories. Selling a family home? Showing a space to keep backpacks and lunch boxes will definitely score you some bonus points! Store rarely used items on higher shelves or upper cabinets.
The Home Office
With the massive increase in work from home setups, the home office space is becoming top priority for home buyers (and homeowners living and working in sanity)! Invest in acrylic boxes and file folders for office storage. Create a docking station for electronics, a command center for keeping things that need to get done and add compartments to drawers for maximizing your space while also staying organized.
Goal when selling: You want buyers to see how much SPACE you have vs how much STUFF you have. Goal when living: Letting go = Freedom. Remove overwhelm and mental clutter through an organized home. Pro Tip: Remove half of what is in your closet and then organize. Start with items you haven't worn in over 1 year - create a pile. Then move on to shoes. Sort by color, style (sleeve length) and shoe type. Designate spaces for bags, purses and accessories.
