Often people wanting to sell their homes just don't know where to start. They know they have a lot of work to do, but are looking for advice on how to get started. Because sellers are used to seeing their clutter and volumes of trinkets and trash on a daily basis, they often just don't get the need to eliminate these items. I call it the "wallpaper effect" - it's such a part of their daily lives that they don't notice it anymore. I often suggest that sellers take a really good look at each room in the house from the perspective of the doorway of each room. This is the first impression each prospective buyer will get. Even better, take a photograph. It will speak volumes. It;s a great way to get a new perspective and to see where to begin to get the house ready to sell.
