Quick Clutter Fixes For Unexpected Showings

Quick Clutter Fixes For Unexpected Showings

When you continue living in a home at the same time you are trying to sell it, keeping it ready for a showing at any time can be a challenge.  This challenge is doubled when you have children in your home.  You want to be able to accommodate a showing whenever possible so your home will quickly. But when asked to let people in unexpectedly, getting things in order fast can be a challenge.  Here are a few simple tips to get ready for a showing in a hurry!

Keep Some Drawer Space Free

Keep a drawer in your kitchen as empty as possible so that it can be a catch-all for the clutter that is hanging around, including unopened mail, pens and pencils, and general kitchen clutter.  When you need to pick up in a hurry, simply open the drawer and toss in whatever will fit.  This can clear off your countertops in a hurry and make your kitchen ready for showing.

A Few Smart Hiding Places

Pick up a few storage ottomans and place them strategically around the house-in the entry, at the end of the hall, in the living or family room.  When you need to clean up quickly, simply lift the lid and hide your clutter inside.  People coming to see the house aren't going to open them, so you don't have to worry about filling them with all of the random clutter that can accumulate during the day.  You can simply fit them into your home décor and they won't be noticed at all.

Under bed storage bins are another quick and easy place to hide clutter fast.  Slide them out and fill them with anything from that load of laundry you haven't had time to put away to the kids' toys in their bedrooms.  Then slip them under the bed and no one will be the wiser.

Clutter has a way of building up in any home, but when you are trying to sell and need to clean it up fast, it's a little more than a nuisance.  Be prepared ahead of time by keeping your clutter hiding places ready to go, and you won't ever have to stress about an unexpected showing again.
