We’ve all seen enough Phil & Kirsty to know that decluttering is a must when selling. Clean lines, clear spaces and a sense of purpose to each and every room is a must when gearing up to sell. Buyers need to be able to imagine themselves living at the property and be able to picture their own belongings there. This doesn’t mean taking the soul out of a property – first and foremost it needs to be a home – but if an item doesn’t serve a purpose seriously consider whether it belongs. We stumbles across this useful guide to decluttering, read it here and let us know your thoughts.
