You probably know the type of people whose homes or offices look like a tornado went through them, but they say they know exactly where everything is. Or, you know the type of people who keep their homes spotlessly clean, emphatic about the importance of cleanliness. Whether you identify with one of those scenarios or somewhere in between, we have some advice when it comes to the level of clutter in a home for sale.
While it’s true that an extremely sanitized home may make it difficult for potential buyers to see themselves living there, the opposite is much more true.

Or, perhaps worse yet, they may feel like the clutter is hiding some significant issue. These examples highlight how important it is to keep your home clutter-free while it’s on the market.
