Declutter your home and your stress may lower. You might also enjoy greater mental clarity. Reduced financial waste, greater personal savings and less time spent searching for keys, gadgets and other misplaced items are additional advantages that you could receive after you declutter your home. Get Rid of Excess and Gain More Space Even if your home is overloaded with furniture, it's possible to declutter your home in 30 days. It's also trouble free, especially if you really want to simplify your life. To start, get large moving boxes to place needless items inside. Other steps that you can take to declutter your home are:
  1. Identify items that you don't need. As a tip, if you haven't used an item in three months or longer, there's a good chance that you don't need it.
  2. Place three to five items in a box each day.
  3. Go through your closet and place clothes that are either too big or too small for you in a box.
  4. Remove packaged dry food from countertops and place them in cupboards. Keep sauce pans and skillets beneath the kitchen sink.
  5. Donate old books to your local library.
  6. Store folding chairs in the garage or a storage closet.
  7. Install brighter lights in dimly lit rooms and remove heavy drapes from windows to allow more natural light inside your home. Not only can this step help to declutter your home, it could also keep your home cooler in spring and summer, potentially lowering your utility bill.
  8. Install a ceiling fan and get rid of floor fans or store floor fans in a closet or the garage until they are needed.
  9. Build decorative shelves in one or more rooms of your home. Place family pictures, knick knacks and books in the shelves. Remove empty bookcases from your home.
  10. Clean the attic, garage and storage closets at the start of each new season.
For large items like sofas, chairs and dressers that you are ready to let go of, consider calling a charity and asking them if they will pick up the furniture free of charge. Also, declutter your home office if you telecommute.  You could store paper files electronically and set a date for when you will get rid of old files. As an example, you might decide to get rid of files that are 10 years or older. Consumerism drives us to spend, buying furniture, gadgets, clothes and jewelry that we don't need and might only use once. A decluttered home can make your home more spacious and help you recognize what's most important, behaviors like spending quality time with your family, getting outdoors more, participating in your favorite hobbies and setting aside time each day to relax.

As a home seller, you likely want to get rid of your residence as quickly as possible. However, there is no reason to underprice your residence to speed up the home selling process.

Ultimately, underpricing a home may create a number of problems. If you fail to consider how much your house is worth, you risk receiving offers for far less than your residence's actual value. As a result, you may fail to maximize the value of your home.

So what does it take to ensure you can establish the right price for your residence? Here are three tips to help home sellers do just that.

1. Employ a Real Estate Agent.

A real estate agent possesses the skills and know-how to help you navigate any real estate market. He or she will be able to offer a wide assortment of housing market data and insights, and as such, provide recommendations to ensure you can set a fair price for your house.

Furthermore, a real estate agent will be able to help you establish the right price for your residence in a buyer's or seller's market – even if you are trying to move out of your home soon. This real estate professional will learn about your needs and explore a variety of options to guarantee you won't have to underprice your home to sell it quickly.

2. Become Familiar with Comparable Homes in Your Area.

Many homes are available in cities and towns across the United States, and home sellers who assess the prices of comparable homes nearby should have no trouble establishing the right price for a residence.

Review real estate listings for houses that currently are available, along with listings for homes that sold recently in your city or town. This will help you understand how your house stacks up against other residences in your area so you can price your home based on the current real estate market.

3. Set Realistic Expectations Throughout the Home Selling Process.

There is no need to panic if your home does not receive multiple offers after the first open house. Instead, try to remain calm, cool and collected, and you can avoid the temptation to lower the price of your house to stir up interest among homebuyers.

Before you add your home to the real estate market, set realistic expectations for how much you would like to receive for your residence and how quickly you need to sell your property. This will enable you to have a home selling plan in place and ensure you are prepared for any challenges that come your way.

A real estate agent can help you establish realistic expectations for the home selling process as well. This professional will allow you to stay up to date about home offers, respond to your home selling concerns and questions and streamline the process of maximizing the value of your residence.

Use the aforementioned tips, and you can speed up the home selling process without sacrificing the value of your house.
