Summary:
When putting homes on the market, many people fail to prepare one room in their home. While not
technically a "room" as such, the garage is a part of the home that is often overlooked....by sellers. Chances
are that if you have been in your home for many years, you have collected a fair amount of "stuff." Where
does most of this surplus "stuff" end up? You guessed it, in the garage.

When putting homes on the market, many people fail to prepare one room in their home. While not
technically a "room" as such, the garage is a part of the home that is often overlooked....by sellers. Chances
are that if you have been in your home for many years, you have collected a fair amount of "stuff." Where
does most of this surplus "stuff" end up? You guessed it, in the garage.


For most people the garage is a holding pen for years of accumulated clutter. Now this may not seem like a
big deal, but when selling a home clutter can be a big problem. If you are one of those people that tend to be
a bit of a pack-rat then cleaning out your garage will be a good project to undertake. Don't forget that when
your home is viewed, every room including the garage will be under scrutiny. Maybe its time to sort through
the stuff and decide what is worth keeping.


Another aspect that is commonly overlooked in garages is the general condition of the garage itself. Dingy
walls and stained floors take away from the overall aesthetic quality of the home and buyers will notice this.
Give the garage a coat of paint, or if you are really up to the task there are some amazing garage
organization systems that improve the look and organization of garages a thousand fold. Prospective buyers
will appreciate the added attention to the overall cleanliness of the home.
