Declutter to Prepare to Sell Your Home
November 21, 2019 at 5:00pm | Kelly Fischer
I am delighted to introduce Katie Wold to you. Katie is an extremely successful stager and someone who can help get your home into pristine condition for
selling. For this video, we are in Katie’s home and being in her house proves the talent she truly has. Not every house needs to be remodeled or requires the seller to spend a ton of money to get it ready for the market. However, there are a few
things that must happen, and as an agent who's been in the business for 25 years, I will say that the most important factors when selling a home are cleanliness
The most difficult thing for people when decluttering is letting go of personal items. Many people think that their children or grandchildren are going to want them, when in truth, they may not. That’s a difficult facet of the process, to go through the emotional aspects of letting go. These items can sometimes be emotional support in older stages of life. Many older people have a lifetime of accumulation and now have to dispose of it. The memories you associate with an item are still there even when that item is removed. Many
people place emotional attachments onto items.
Katie enjoys helping people figure out what’s right to keep and okay to get rid of; it’s something she’s passionate about. She loves to help people.
Katie’s process begins with a free consultation to ensure her skills fit your needs. Those meetings are 30 minutes to an hour. She’ll discuss what she thinks will work best in the home to prepare it for sale. Then she’ll suggest which items should
be temporarily removed, donated, or sold. “I do that myself. I remove and donate the items, I help sell things. My service is all-inclusive, including spending the time to shop if items need to be brought in, for example. We want to help support the client in this process,” Katie says.
