If you plan to sell a house, you should allocate time and resources to remove clutter from the attic. By doing so, you can show off the true size of your house and increase the likelihood of a fast, profitable home sale.

Ultimately, there are several best practices to help home sellers declutter an attic, and these practices include:

1. Separate Clutter from Items That You Want to Keep

Your attic may be filled with a wide range of items. As a home seller, you'll want to differentiate attic items that you want to keep from those that need to be removed from your home.

With items that you intend to keep, you should package these items safely. Then, you can store these items neatly in your attic. Or, you can move these items into a storage unit.

For home sellers who encounter a massive collection of attic clutter, there is no need to worry. You may be able to sell or donate excess items that work properly and are in great condition. Furthermore, be sure to dispose of any damaged or broken items immediately.

2. Get Plenty of Help

The temptation to tackle attic cleaning on your own may be overwhelming, but it is important to remember that Rome was not built in a day. Thus, if you try to remove attic clutter on your own, you risk myriad problems along the way.

Attic clutter can range from small and lightweight to big and heavy. If you're operating on a strict timeline, you might struggle to quickly get clutter out of your attic if you work alone. And if you're forced to remove large items on your own, there is a risk of injury as well.

When it comes to decluttering an attic, caution is key. As such, you should enlist the help of family members and friends to ensure you can remove attic clutter quickly and safely.

In addition, if you want to avoid the hassle of decluttering your attic, you may want to hire professional help. With friendly, knowledgeable cleaning professionals at your side, you should have no trouble eliminating clutter from your attic.

3. Consult with a Real Estate Agent

Clutter is a major problem in many attics, and few h

If you are going to keep your infants safe in your home, then it is crucial that you baby proof your home. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention report home accidents as the leading cause of infant deaths around the country. As soon as your baby starts crawling, then the likelihood of getting into an accident just shot up. Let this checklist serve as a guide as you make your home conducive and safe for your little infant.

  • Cover the edges of your furniture and fittings with safety padding.
  • Use childproof latches to secure any cabinets, shelves, drawers, or cupboards that are accessible to the baby; especially the bottom ones.
  • Remember to unplug all unused electrical appliances. The electrical cords can become a strangulation hazard in the hands of an 11-month-old.
  • Remove all poisonous plants and shrubbery out of the reach of your baby. Crawling infants have been known to attempt chewing on potted plants in the living area.
  • Always keep small toys and moving parts out of the reach of the baby, they might end up becoming a choking hazard.
  • Don't place your baby in a freshly painted nursery or crib to avoid exposing them to potentially deadly toxicants in the air. Complete all painting and wallpapering at least two months before the baby's arrival.
  • Use leather straps to hold TVs, bookshelves, mirrors, and dressers in place to avoid your crawling infant crashing into them.
  • Move cleaning supplies, detergents, chemicals from the lower cabinet levels to the higher ones. Also, remember to keep all medicines and drugs safely out of the reach of your infants. Securely lock the liquor cabinet from the baby as alcohol is quite poisonous in infants.
  • Make sure that you have a thick piece of rug in the baby's nursery to cushion the effects of any falls. The baby's high chair should also be sturdy enough to carry the weight of the baby without tipping over.
  • Get a safety gate and mount at the doorways of rooms that are out of bounds to the baby. You could also place them at entrances leading to the staircases or use stair gates where necessary. 

If you want to learn more about baby proofing your home, get an essential childproofing safety kit from the nearest superstore to you. If your home doesn’t have the perfect nursery, reach out to your real estate professional to see if a home near you does.

With lots of homes out there and more foreclosed homes coming to the market, home sellers are always looking out for ways to expedite the home selling process. Statistics show that most homebuyers make their decisions in the first few minutes they get to a home. Consequently, experts advise home sellers to invest cash in remodeling their homes and installing features that appeal to a higher percentage of homebuyers. 

The greatest fear of a home seller is having his property sit on the market forever. Here are a few buy-me-now features for every homebuyer seek.

Top Features to Make Your Home Sell Fast

  • Extra Storage in Garage. Homebuyers have long dropped the trend of using the basement as storage. Instead, they now look for a more convenient place which can double as storage and workshop. Yes, you guessed it – a garage with extra space. Installing features like cabinets, shelving units, and the likes make the home more appealing to potential homebuyers. Convenience is the trend!
  • Inviting Exterior. Your home exterior tells potential buyers all they need to know. You could have a fantastic interior décor and still scare potential buyers off with poor unappealing exterior features. Be sure to pay attention to your door and its hardware, mailbox, and most importantly, the lighting. A well-illuminated home sells faster and better than one with poor lighting.
  • Hardwood Flooring. Wood floors have to be the most desirable feature in a home. Statistics show that homes with hardwood flooring have the propensity to seller faster and at a higher cost compared to other homes in the same neighborhood. Why? It is because hardwood flooring is durable, easy to maintain, and they make the home pop. It immediately creates a statement as visitors walk into your home.What's more? They complement just about any interior design. Who wouldn't want a home with such an amazing feature?
  • Sophisticated Kitchen. The kitchen is the heart of the home. No wonder homebuyers are willing to put out more cash to secure a house with a modern kitchen. As a home seller looking to expedite the buying process, this is an excellent place on which to focus. You also get the opportunity to upsell the property. Be sure to make the kitchen as sophisticated as possible. Homebuyers want a kitchen with ample storage space. Features like modern countertops, pantries with abundant space, hidden storage for utensils are your best shot at closing the deal sooner.

Giving your home a lift – both indoors and outdoors - increases your chances of attracting potential buyers. And the more potential buyers you have, the higher your chances of upselling the home. Invest in your home today!
