Make Living in Your For-Sale Home Easier With These 5 Tips
May 29, 2019 at 12:05pm | Angie Cody
Living in your home while it’s for sale will be a much more feasible endeavor with these five tips.
You’re selling your home and you’d like to stay until you find a buyer. How can you pull this off, though? Today I’ll give you five pointers for doing so without any difficulty:
1. Start packing now. If the item is going unused and is only taking up precious space, you’ll be much better off just packing it up before an offer comes in on
2. Declutter. Speaking of precious space, take the opportunity while you’re still in the home to donate items you no longer have any use for. The fewer belongings
you have in the home, the better. Rather than the possessions within it, we want the buyer’s focus to be drawn to the home itself. That way, they can visualize their items in the space.
3. Ensure that your home is squeaky clean. In almost all cases, a spruced-up and well-kept home will sell much faster. In the buyer’s mind, a clean home speaks
for itself in how well it’s been cared for.

4. Hide or remove any of your valuables before showings. Especially with open houses, you don’t know who’s coming in and out of your home. Make sure any prized valuables
you have aren’t in plain sight for a potential thief to snatch.
5. Get your kids involved in the process. You can incentivize their involvement by rewards or by making a game out of it. Keep in mind that this time isn’t just
stressful for you. Your kids are likely going through some stress of their own, so try bringing a sense of fun to the selling process.
