Have you decided to sell your Miami house and move somewhere different? Perhaps, you’re looking to upgrade to a bigger property or just fancy a change of scene. Whatever the reason relocating and moving house can be a challenge, especially if you have a big family with multiple generations living under the same roof.
More people living in the house means more stuff to box away, more messes to clean up, and more people you will have to coordinate with when setting up property showings. It can be very stressful getting everybody on the same page when trying to sell your house and move at the same time in Miami. That’s why today’s article will offer some tips to make the whole process much easier!
Have The House Professionally Cleaned
If you choose to list your house with many occupants, it’s a good idea to have the property cleaned by a professional.
The more people under one roof, the more mess, clutter, and general chaos you have to deal with. Eliminate the frustration of organizing everyone to do a massive deep clean by hiring a professional company to do it for you. A cleaning company will also set the standard for which you need to keep the property clean and tidy.
Purge Old Items
When selling a house with a Miami real estate agent, it’s a good idea to get everyone to purge their out-dated and unwanted items. Go through old toys, clothes, books, and other items that can tend to pile up under beds and at the backs of cupboards.
Consider donating or selling anything you haven’t used in a while. If you don’t know where to start just think, “The more you get rid of, the less you have to pack and unpack when you move!”
If you decide to list your house in Miami, buyers are bound to be a little bit nosy and open the drawers and peek in the cupboards. You don’t want your family members to hide all the clutter every time someone requests a viewing.
Clutter (even akwardly hidden) can make buyers feel uncomfortable. In some cases, it may incorrectly give the impresssion that the house is small.
Tackle this by tidying up and bringing organization to your home as much as you can! Buy drawer organizers, clean out cupboards, and limit the number of items being kept in the bathroom. Plus, by organizing these spaces, it will be easier to keep your house clean as a whole.
Consolidate The Property Showings
If you decide to work with a real estate agent in Miami to help sell your house, try to have them schedule showings on certain days. Of course, you don’t want to make things awkward for potential buyers. But organizing a large family around random viewings is a recipe for disaster.
See if your agent can schedule the majority of showings on Wednesdays and Saturdays. That way, your family will only have to worry about cleaning up on Tuesday and Friday nights. They won’t feel pressure to keep the house immaculate every day of the week, which can be quite difficult for large families to handle.
Give Everyone Something To Do
When lots of people live in a home, keeping it clean when trying to sell can be overwhelming. While you can ask everyone to clean up after themselves, you will also benefit by designating one person to oversee a specific part of the house. It won’t be their responsibility to physically clean that part of the home, instead it will be their job to make sure that everyone is tidying up after themselves for that particular room.
Pack Up Your Personal Items Now
A great way to get a head start on moving and make the selling process easier is to pack away non-essential items now. Don’t wait until the sale has been finalized, pack up everything you don’t need in advance. It’ll make everything that much easier when moving days.
Keep in mind that if you are listing your house with a real estate agent in Miami, these items may be packed up for a while, so make sure they are safe.
