When your home is on the market, what’s in your closet can be as important as the condition of your yard and the size of your kitchen. Some buyers will even check your closets for key clues as to who you are and how you live. Here are some easy ways for you to spruce up your closet and send the best message to potential buyers.
A Unisex Closet May Make the Best Impression
If the closet of your master bedroom has only one gender’s clothing, you might not think anything of it, but an intuitive buyer might take this as a sign of a troubled marriage. This might make them suspect that you are going through a divorce and need to sell quickly, so they will offer lower than normal. As such, it’s best to keep men’s and women’s clothing in the same closet space and not fuel anyone’s imagination.
Take a Minimalist Approach
Because cluttered closets look smaller, only store what you absolutely need, and leave as much room as you can. Even if you have a large closet and are just messy by nature, the homebuyer will not give you the benefit of the doubt as they take a look at the closet space for themselves. In their mind, if your stuff barely fits, how can theirs?
Don’t Give Away Your Income Bracket
Keep all of your personal paperwork out of the closet, including tax returns, utility bills, and credit card statements. Don’t try to impress homebuyers by displaying only your fanciest clothing as you may give them the wrong impression that the house is out their price range. At the same time, be sure to keep any “junk clothes” out of sight.
