should I sell my home occupied or vacant?

should I sell my home occupied or vacant?

If you’re selling your home, you’re probably wondering whether you should move out now or wait until you have found a buyer. There isn’t an easy answer to this – whether you should move before you sell is dependent on many factors.

Do you have a lot of stuff in your home? Does the home feel cluttered? If the answer is yes, you have two options: one, thin out the furniture or, two, completely move out so the home can be shown in its entirety. If a home has too much stuff in it, it will feel cluttered.

It might be better to move out so that the home is clear and clean once buyers arrive

Another thing to consider is whether you can keep your home in show-ready condition at all times. Depending on your situation, it might be better to move out so that the home is clear and clean once buyers arrive. On the other hand, if you’re a clean person who doesn’t have to clean up after kids, staying in the home while selling might be a more convenient option.

When selling, you should ask yourself whether your furniture is in showing condition. If it is old and ragged, you should either replace it or move out and have your home professionally staged!
