It’s important to get a head start on your move before you get an offer from a homebuyer. Here are five tips to help you jumpstart your organizing and simplify your next move.

1. Sort your belongings into these groups: keep, give away, maybe, and trash. Once you have, box up everything in the maybe pile and store those items for six to 12 months. If you don’t have a use for those items in the next year, then you can probably give those away.

2. Give yourself plenty of time. Be patient. The process of getting organized takes time. Sorting through personal paper and memorabilia will take much longer than sorting through other items. Give yourself some extra time for the reminiscing that will occur.

3. Store your items in clear bins. Using plastic bins helps you know what’s inside each bin. If you use colored bins or cardboard boxes, use a pen to clearly label what’s inside and which room it will go in. Use a large piece of paper to write your labels on so that you can use that bin again later for another purpose.

4. Get rid of your paper. Another problem in homes is the paper trail you leave from room to room. It could be magazines, newspapers, documents, advertising, or receipts. Most homeowners keep a lot of paper, which creates a lot of clutter. Go through your files and reduce that paper by shredding or recycling documents that you do not need.

5. Do it now. This is the most valuable tip. As soon as you finish reading this, block some time off on your calendar to start getting organized. Putting it on your calendar should prevent any procrastination. If you start taking care of things right away, it will get simpler over time.

The same is true for your move.

I hope you found these tips helpful. If you have any other questions about buying or selling a home, just give me a call or send me an email. I would be happy to help you!
