Selling Your Home Tasks To Complete

Contrary to popular belief, it doesn't involve expenses brought on by pricey staging involving new floors and even taking down a wall. That's a misconception that plenty of DIY shows out there today have propagated. 

In truth, there are many affordable ways to help a home along before it's sold. Staging a home doesn't have to take a lot of time or cost an arm and a leg. Some ideas cost pretty much nothing and can be accomplished in a few hours or so.

Read on for some of the many tasks you should accomplish before your home is up for sale:

Before You Put Your Home up for Sale, Clean Doors and Windows!

Light in a space means a lot for potential buyers across multiple levels. So keeping both doors and windows clean is best for the space. Don't miss out on the windowsills, either, since dust and dirt can collect. The back door often has a lot of high traffic; don't miss out on those, too!

Before You Put Your Home up for Sale, Organise the Pantry!

Pantries are one of the most important spaces in a home. Having made a comeback in recent years pantries are now a desirable kitchen feature. Make sure similar items are grouped and organised nicely; canned sauces, for example. 

Check on the shelves and make sure they are clean as well as the floor. Pantries are prime areas for crumbs and spills.

Before You Put Your Home up for Sale, You Should Declutter!

Here's why: People having too much stuff is probably a default setting for everyone at this point, one way or another. Aside from closets being stuffed to the brim, surfaces are typically cluttered, and even beds with space underneath have items stored there. Make sure you go through every single item you own. In order not to be fully overwhelmed, going by room is your best bet. 

If you have a walk-in closet, take it by section! Create three piles or have three boxes prepared: Donate/Give Away, Keep, Recycle/Bin. Make sure you keep an eye out for valuables, keepsakes, memorabilia and photos. This will assist in creating a spacious area. If you are struggling or you still have lots of items look into storage unit rental.


One of the most stressful events in a homeowner's life is when the house needs to be put up for sale. Contrary to popular belief, it doesn't actually require lots of time or large amounts of money. Before you put your home up for sale, declutter, clean doors and windows and get organised.
