Chosen to be caretakers of priceless antiques. “Keep these pieces in our family,” they said. I’m constantly saying to my clients and to myself, “Stuff is only (monetarily) worth what someone is willing to pay for it.”
The minute you decide to sell your home it becomes a house–a product to market to the public. Your goal is to make your house irresistible to buyers; to cause them to fall in love when they first lay eyes on it.
Being “organized” isn’t an end in itself. It’s a foundation to the life we want to live in our homes and lives.
If you think getting organized is expensive, please consider the costs of being disorganized.
