5 Places People Peek

Sunday, January 6th, 2013
  1. Your Shower/Tub. Regardless of whether you have a clear plastic door, a colorful shower curtain or nothing at all, people will open it up, pull it back or step in to take a look.
  2. Your Cabinets. People want to see the space they offer. How many shelves do they have? What are they made of? How deep are they?
  3. Your Drawers. More than for the space they offer, people want to know how they work. Do your drawers open and close easily? Do they have a soft close feature? Do they have any built-in organizers?
  4. Your Closets. This is a big one for prospective buyers. Closets = storage for most people.
  5. Your Attic. Go up and look to see the condition of your attic as well as what is up there before putting your house on the market. Your stored items have to go so better to know!

Tackle any of these and it will make you feel better and your house show better.

  1. Linens.  If they’re torn or shredding, time to trash.
  2. Shoes.  Let them go if they are too small, too painful or just too “what was I thinking?”
  3. Tupperware. They will never get organized if you keep throwing them in the cabinet.
  4. Games. As your children grow the games they play change.  This is a great one to pass on to someone else.
  5. Sweaters. Assess the ones you wear versus the ones that your never do.
  6. CD’s and DVD’s. I had a friend give a donation of all her VHS tapes to a non-profit organization. It was a benefit all around!
  7. Jewelry. Classic never goes out of style.  It’s the “today’s fashion” that you have to be honest about.
  8. Coats.  It’s worth going through it at least once a year.
  9. Handbags.  Not your style anymore?  Donate. Sell. Exchange. Give away…and the list goes on.
  10. Decorations. Some of us have a room full and some of us have a box full. Either way, know what you have so you can enjoy it when the holiday is here. (more…)
