Your home may be in good condition and well built, yet simple clutter will create a perception of chaos, confusion, and disorder.  The purchase decision is an emotional and intellectual response, based on a level of trust in your home.  When buyers see clutter, they assume that the home has been neglected, with more to fix than meets the eye.  This perception undermines your home's market value.
De-cluttering is an essential part of your preparation, and is virtually cost free. This activity is goes hand in hand with moving.  Before you put your home on the market, have a garage sale, throw some things out, and box stuff up.  Your move will be easier, and you will create an open, spacious, simplified look that buyers love.  If you need support, a local home staging service can work with your furniture and create a whole new look.  When it comes to selling your home, less is truly more.
