FAQ's Friday! What Do You Mean, "Closets Are Money" When Selling My House?

Yes! Yes! Yes!  Buyers covet spacious storage.  Closets are money in your pocket when selling your house.
Buyers are literally buying into a lifestyle.  Buyers have dreams that when they move into your house their lives will be dramatically different. They fantasize that they will finally become organized.  Buyers yearn for a place for everything and everything in its place. "In the new house..."  buyers want to believe, their lives will be Martha Stewart-perfect.

Closets are money because buyers love spacious storage.  There never is, and never will be, too much storage space.  We are a society of accumulators.  Buyers assume that if there is not enough space for your stuff; there is not going to be enough space for theirs.
It doesn't cost anything to clear, organize and stage your closets.  Smart money, I say.

Have a great weekend y'all!
