What does a garage organizer have to do with selling your home? Well, it is a tough market right now, so anything you can do to make your home more appealing can make a difference between whether someone chooses your home or another one. When selling a home, a seller naturally looks at what they can do to increase outside curb appeal, and do small things inside to make the home look larger and more airy. But one area that is often overlooked is the garage. A garage is used for a lot of things in a home, so it is important to make it as appealing as the rest of the house. Many realtors give you a basic check list for getting your house ready to sell, but not much in the way of garage organizer tips to help present this part of your in the best light possible. Here are 3 tips I learned to prepare the garage for a home sale.Now, in the first home we sold, there was no garage, so I didn't give it any thought. But the home we sold this summer we had a 2 car garage. Our first impulse was to use the garage for storage. Not very bright, tons of boxes stacked in the garage does not help it to look bigger! It is amazing how small a cluttered garage can look, it makes a buyer ask, can I really get two cars in here? You are probably packing up a lot of your extra stuff to help make your house look roomier, but don't store all that stuff in your garage, get a storage unit. It is only short term, and is well worth the money if it keeps your garage from getting cluttered.Get a basic garage organizer.
