Interested in learning about what to do when preparing to sell a house? You’re in the right place. Here are five tips for a pre-move purge.

  1. Clean Out Your Closet

The first thing you are going to want to start with is your closet. Go through all your clothes as you pack and set aside anything you have not worn in a long time. A good rule of thumb is to get rid of anything you have not worn in the last year.

  1. Keep Things Organized

Whether you are packing up your closet or kitchen, it’s important to keep things organized. This is important for packing and for highlighting things you may not need to take with you. This makes it easier for you to keep the things you want to purge aside from the rest of your things.

  1. Donate or Sell Unwanted Furniture

Moving gives you the opportunity to re-imagine what you want your home to look like. Take this into consideration as you pick the furniture that you want to take with you. If you have anything that you don’t plan on incorporating into your new home, consider selling or donating it.

  1. Sell Outdated Appliances

Selling your outdated appliances can help you save money on moving costs and contribute toward buying new ones for your new home. This is a great way to modernize your home at the same time.

  1. Consider Having a Yard Sale

Selling household items can sometimes take a while. However, a yard sale is one of the most effective ways to get rid of many items in a single weekend. This can help you raise some funds so that you can furnish your new home exactly how you want to.

Partner With an Experienced Real Estate Title Company

Moving to a new home can be a challenging task. However, this does provide you with an opportunity to purge your home of unnecessary items that you may have collected over the years. This is why you should take some time to look through your home and get rid of whatever you may not need.

This, along with partnering with an experienced real estate title company, can make the entire process quick and easy.
