According to the National Association of Realtors 2022 Remodeling Impact Report, demand for contracting in remodeling work steeply increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. When consumers remodel, it is to upgrade worn-out surfaces, finishes, and materials, to add features and improve livability, and because it is time for a change.

It's critical because when potential buyers tour the property during a showing, they want to visualize moving in their own stuff. If your stuff fills up the space, that leaves little room for imagination!
Even if you're not planning to move soon, decluttering can improve your quality of life inside your home. Things are easier to find. Fewer items to keep clean. Plus, a decluttered space improves your mental clarity.
Decluttering is understandably a big project, especially if you have lived in the home for a long time. "Stuff" always finds its way into every corner, cupboard, and closet. Follow the below steps to start decluttering.
