Maximizing Your Listing's Potential: The Importance of Decluttering and Organizing (Part 2)



This is part 2 of a two part series aimed at getting homes ready before selling through decluttering and organization. This series is a collaboration with Balanced Chaos, a local, women-owned business that's focused on restoring the balance and creating clarity within your chaos.


"Once you have minimized the clutter in your home and removed the items that no longer serve you, it's time to clean up for pictures." says Celeste LaRochelle at Balanced Chaos. "You will find that being organized and having less clutter will make the cleaning process much easier."


Getting your home ready for real estate photos is crucial when it comes to selling your home for the maximum value. The way your home is presented in photos can make a big impact on potential buyers and can ultimately determine whether or not they decide to view your property in person.





Having a clean and tidy home will ensure that you have beautiful pictures for your listing. If you are tackling this on your own, here are some helpful tips...





Tip 1.
Room By Room.

Don't overwhelm yourself! Cleaning a whole house can be a large task. Make a plan and set yourself up to accomplish things at a comfortable pace. Making a goal to complete a room or two a day, or maybe three!


Tip 2.
Top To Bottom.

You want to start at the top first, dusting fans, light fixtures and molding. As you do this, dust is going to fall and you don't want to create extra work for yourself.


Tip 3.
Attention To Detail.

A clean home always gives a feeling of comfort. Don't forget to clean the baseboards, walls, windows, the vents and to get the floor sparkling.


In today's real estate market, it can be difficult to make your listing (and your brand!) stand out. One of the most effective ways to do this is by having high-quality real estate photos. These photos can help showcase your home in the best light and grab the attention of potential buyers. They can also help your home stand out from the competition and make it more appealing to buyers. Investing in professional photography or taking the time to stage and photograph your home yourself can make a significant impact on the success of your home sale.
