A walk-in closet could be a selling point, but it’s hard for buyers to get a good feel for a cluttered space. “Crammed closets and cabinets make spaces look smaller than they really are, which can be a huge deterrent to potential buyers,” says Annie Draddy, co-founder of organization company Henry & Higby in Brooklyn, New York. In addition to clearing out clutter, she recommends adding organizational systems, should space and budget permit. Purging unneeded items also helps make the move to a new home easier. Alternatively, store belongings in a storage unit until the sale is completed.
