The UK estate market has reached a unique point in which homebuyers would save a substantial amount of money now that the stamp duty charge has been temporarily lifted. This type of help has come during the pandemic, but it has definitely encouraged more people to finally go ahead with their plans and buy a new home.
If you are one of those who have decided that now is the time to sell, it is the perfect opportunity to clear your home of unwanted items. This will not only help to sell your home, but also make the moving process so much easier.
Preparing Your Home for Selling
Preparing your home for selling is an extremely lengthy process that, if done well, can considerably increase the value of the property. Many homeowners decide to go ahead with DIY projects that have been waiting to be done for some time and repainting to freshen up their property.
However, decluttering your house is just as important. This includes all of your living spaces, your loft, garage and shed. It’s amazing how much unwanted junk people keep ‘just in case’ and you will no doubt be surprised at the amount that you have kept in and around your home.
Clearing Your Loft, Garage or Storage Room
Among the most important spaces of the house to clear are the loft, garage, and garden shed. These are those areas that we tend to forget about until the day comes when we need to clear them. If you have started in advance and you have enough time before the moving out date, you can start from one zone and then, with time, move onto the next ones.
With this strategy, you can be sure that all the corners of your home are clean and tidy before selling your house.
Give yourself a weekend to clear each area and keep all of your unwanted items in one place. This will make disposing of everything much easier and cost effective. Trying to do everything in one go can be overwhelming.
In each room, start in one corner and work your way around. Decide what you want to keep, give to charity, sell and those things that you want to dispose of.
