For home sellers, you'll want to spend some time organizing your residence's garage. By doing so, you can show homebuyers just how much space your garage has to offer. Plus, you might even be able to eliminate clutter and get rid of unwanted items before you move.

What does it take to transform an ordinary garage into an exceptional one? Here are three garage organization tips that every home seller needs to know.

1. Use All of the Space at Your Disposal.

Although your garage may seem small at first, it is important to keep in mind that you can use assorted shelving and storage units to optimize the amount of space at your disposal.

Try to use as much vertical space as you can to store items in your garage. For instance, you can hang brooms, mops and rakes on your garage walls, and this may allow you to free up horizontal space for other garage items. In addition, you can set up cabinets to store various tools in your garage.

Ideally, you'll want to maintain sufficient space to fit your car in your garage. And if you focus on maximizing the horizontal and vertical space that is available, you should have no trouble parking your car in your garage any time you choose.

2. Separate Your Must-Have Items from the Clutter.

Clutter is an eyesore, and as such, you'll want to do everything possible to eliminate it from your garage immediately.

Dedicate the necessary time and resources to go through all of the belongings in your garage. This will enable you to separate must-have items from garage clutter.

If you find an excess amount of garage clutter, you have a few options as well. You can throw away items, donate them to charity or sell them during a garage sale. Regardless of which options you choose, you'll be able to eliminate clutter and improve your garage's appearance at the same time.

3. Label Your Belongings.

Now that you know which items you're going to keep, you should label and store them accordingly.

Typically, sorting items into groups is a good idea, particularly when it comes to organizing your garage. This will help you stay organized as well as save time when you need to find garage items in the future.

If you're struggling to organize your garage, you may want to consider professional assistance. Lucky for you, cleaning companies are available that can help you revamp your garage and ensure it looks clean and neat for an extended period of time.

Furthermore, your real estate agent may be able to help you enhance your garage's appearance. He or she will be able to offer garage organization and cleaning recommendations, guaranteeing you can take the right steps to improve your garage.

When it comes to organizing your home's garage, there is no need to leave anything to chance. Instead, use the aforementioned tips, and you can organize your garage items and bolster your garage's appearance.

Many sellers rely on agents to help them to deal with the task of selling their home. If youíre looking to buy or sell a home, a real estate agent isnít required. There are many advantages and disadvantages to selling your home as a ďFor Sale By OwnerĒ (FSBO). Read on to discover the good and bad of selling your home on your own. 


The Pros


Avoid Paying Commission


Real estate commission is the main reason that many sellers choose to go it alone. Youíll pay about 6% commission on the sale of your home between buyers and sellers agents. When figuring out the asking price for your property, this number that youíll pay for a commission is included. This sale price also should be enough to pay off the remaining balance on the property. If you donít have a lot of equity in your home, an FSBO may be your only option if you canít afford the commission. Another option is to wait to sell your home until you have built up enough equity for the transaction to make sense for you. 


You Can Find Other Resources To Help You Sell The Property


There are so many resources available to FSBOs in todayís market. Yards signs arenít the only thing that sellers can use to get people interested in their property. Many websites and resources assist people taking the FSBO approach. You still may not be able to get your property listed everywhere if youíre not a real estate agent. 


Cons


You Wonít Be Able To List The Property Fully


Only licensed real estate agents have access to the MLS, where buyers' agents and other websites pull available properties.  Not having access to this can be a deterrent to the marketing of your home. You could miss out on getting many home showings that you otherwise would if your house was listed on the MLS. 


Thereís No One To Help You With Paperwork And Negotiations


Real estate agents certainly earn their commission. There is a lot of work in both selling and buying a home. If you hire an agent, heíll be taking phone calls, sending off forms, and dealing with the negotiations on the property. An agent will also coordinate home showings and have the ability to show your property when youíre unavailable. If you go it alone, you wonít have that assistance and may be a bit overwhelmed during the selling process.


A real estate agent also understands the lingo better than someone who has been outside of the business. There are many advantages to paying his fee if you decide to hire him for the sale of your home.
