The Trilogy – Part III

Now that you have packed away your worldly possessions, the next step is to De-clutter. Think of this process as a head-start or “pre-packing”, which you will eventually need to do anyway.

This is the time to re-evaluate what to keep and not to keep. Many of us are in the habit of collecting an astonishing quantity of “stuff” over the years. There are several types of items to remove when preparing to stage and sell your house.

  • Items we haven’t used in a long time like that piece of excersize equipment sitting in the corner of the room or the violin that you told yourself you wanted to learn to play… 12 years ago.
  • Items we have forgotten we even had, like the banana protector sitting at the back of a kitchen cupboard or that box of pens with your old office address on them that you can’t use anymore.
  • Items we no longer need like excess pieces of furniture, clothing that hasn’t fit for 4 years, kid’s toys, or pet toys that no longer resemble what they actually are.

Disassociating yourself from your home, depersonalize your property, and de-cluttering your belongings are combined to create the 3D Staging Effect – the 3 important tasks that will ensure a successful sale of your home.

At House Coach we specialize in having that objective professional eye that will provide you with our recommendations, a detailed plan that will alleviate the stress, and a creative flare that will ensure your house will shine above the competition.  Call us today at 647-618-9845 for a consultation and we will guarantee to leave you and your house with a SMILE!

Our Tips

De-Clutter is the number one priority when selling your home. Consider this: if you haven’t used it in over a year, you probably don’t need it.  If you don’t need it, why not donate it or throw it away?


Getting rid of clutter eliminates 40% of housework in the average home.
