As we previously discussed, spring market is just around the corner. If you are planning on putting your Fishers, IN home on the market or already have your home on the market then you know how necessary it is to have your home in tip top shape. One of the most important tasks for getting ready to sell your Fishers, IN home is to completely de-clutter your home. The problem is you still need to be able to live in it until it sells. The biggest clutter-trap of the home is the kitchen counters. Here are four tips to keep the clutter at bay and help you keep your Fishers, IN home properly prepped for open houses and showings.
- Clear as You Cook: Don’t wait until the end of meal prep to put away ingredients and supplies, do it as you go and finish what you start. This will make for a much quicker after-dinner clean up so you can get on with the rest of your evening relaxing or spending time with the family.
- Create a Landing Strip: Is your counter continually covered with mail, keys, and other non-kitchen related items? You likely don’t have a proper landing strip – a place where when you walk through the door you can drop essentials such as your keys and phone. Don’t rely on your kitchen space to accommodate overflow and clear some clutter in the process.
- Nightly Clutter Blitz: Every night do a clutter blitz. Clutter breeds more clutter, so reset your counter space and floor space every night before bed so you can start fresh in the morning. You may wake up to a last minute showing in the morning so it’s best to be prepared daily. The last thing you have time for in the morning is cleaning before heading out the door for the day.
- Store Unused Items Out of Sight: Store those crock pots, food blenders, and other bulky appliances off the kitchen counter until you need them. Your counters will be clear and create the illusion of more kitchen space for your Fishers, IN homebuyers.
