Are you unable to park your car in your garage because there is too much stuff in there?
Is your attic no longer accessible because of all the items sitting all over the place?
You are not alone. There are millions of people in the same situation, but if you are planning on selling your house, it might be a good idea to get to work clearing out that clutter and making your home more organized. Why is that?
The truth is that a cluttered home could turn away a potential buyer since it can seem smaller, as well as, raise concerns about pests nesting in the clutter.
Clutter can also pose a fire hazard. Garage fires usually go unnoticed for a long time, and might grow too large to contain if there are a lot of items that can serve as fuel. The fire can easily spread to your residence after that, endangering the lives of you and your family.
The most common reason for a build up of clutter is saving unnecessary items. If you are still holding on to things that you haven’t used for years, consider if you really need to keep them.
