Whether you are selling your home or staying put, de-cluttering your space opens your home to unlimited possibilities.

First off – if you are selling your home, one of the most important things to do is de-clutter and visually create more space. Potential buyer’s are unable to see past your things, no matter how cute or adorable you may think your collections are, they have to go! It’s a fact that buyer’s will pay more attention to what you own and have on display rather than appreciate the beauty and unique characteristics of your home. They won’t even begin to imagine themselves living there nor put an offer on your house because all they remember is your collection of ______ (fill in the blank). Clutter increases the feeling of restriction and confusion, plus it limits openness, creativity, ideas and the potential for a sale. Are you ready to enhance the features of your home or limit it?

If you’re staying put, de-cluttering your house will not only open up the floor plan but you’ll find you have more space to enjoy it, both mentally and physically. According to Feng Shui principles clutter can create stagnation, struggle, and confusion. Clearing your space not only frees up your time and energy, but can promote new and unlimited possibilities.
