Declutter! Consider it pre-packing for your move. Box up books, clothes, and personal items and place them (neatly!) in the garage or — better yet — a rented storage unit.

Don’t forget to include memorabilia in those decluttering bins. Family photos, diplomas, and the kids’ artwork should all go.

Keep closets, basements, and attics as empty as possible to maximize the appearance of storage space.

Transform underused areas of the house — the alcove under the stairs or the end of a hallway — into functional spots. Add a desk to create a mini office, or a chair and small bookshelf for a reading nook.

Swap dim lights for high-wattage bulbs.

Check every door, drawer, and cabinet to ensure they open and close easily. Swap out any faulty — or dingy — hardware.

Damaged or aging hardwood floors? Replace damaged boards with new wood, sand down the entire floor, and re-stain.

Do a deep (deep, deep) clean. Hire a professional cleaning service to clean your home from top to bottom — including carpets — before viewings.

Until next time….
