The worst part of moving is always packing and unpacking. An action plan can save you time and frustration at both the current and new home.
A packing plan for your Chicagoland Home
Before you put your Chicagoland home on the market, you’ll probably need to do a little packing. Generally speaking almost all sellers have too much stuff. Closets will need to be pared down and organized. Bookcases will need to be edited and excess furniture will need to be removed.
Some basic moving tips for your Chicagoland home
If you have more than one dresser, two night stands, and a bed in your room, you may have too much furniture. It’s not uncommon to find multiple dressers in a large master bedroom. Still, more than one may be an indication to buyers that there isn’t enough closet space. Be prepared to reduce your large furniture pieces so that it will feel more spacious to potential buyers.
Get an outside storage unit or pod
Once you’ve got everything packed, be sure to store your belongings off site. An over packed garage isn’t much better than an over stuffed closet.
