If you're getting ready to put your home on the market, the thought of organizing, cleaning, and arranging it may seem like an overwhelming project!

Knowing where to begin and how much money to spend on home staging and decorating are among the many questions that may be flooding your mind, right now.

The key to success is to make as much of an impact as possible, without spending more money than necessary.

One way to avoid "spinning your wheels" when it comes to maximizing the appearance of your home is to work with an experienced real estate agent. A good agent will quickly notice aspects of your home that need attention and advise you on the most cost-effective ways to improve its marketability. If they've shown dozens (or more) houses in their career, they'll be very familiar with all the things that attract buyers, as well as what repels them.

Although everyone has different tastes and expectations, many house hunters are attracted to gleaming hardwood floors, energy efficient windows, and stainless steel appliances. While it may not be cost effective to have new floors, appliances, and windows installed to sell your house faster, you can make the best possible impression by making sure the windows are crystal clear, hardwood floors are polished, and appliances are clean and shiny.

Since many house hunters pay close attention to the kitchen, it's especially important to win their approval on appearance and cleanliness. Because food is prepared and often consumed in the kitchen, it's going to be one of the more challenging rooms to keep clean -- especially if you have children. However, if a prospective buyer is wavering between two houses for sale, you can be reasonably sure that the one with the clean kitchen and bathrooms will be their preferred choice.

There are a lot of other ways you can make your kitchen appealing to buyers, too. By minimizing clutter on counter tops and displaying fresh flowers and a colorful bowl of fruit, you can make your kitchen look much more inviting. Prospective buyers will also respond favorably to appealing fragrances, such as freshly baked bread, cookies, cinnamon buns, or coffee. Clean windows, attractive curtains, and plenty of natural light will also add to the ambiance of your kitchen.

The ideal reaction from potential buyers touring your home would be something to the effect of "I can imagine us preparing dinner, entertaining guests, and sitting around the breakfast table in this house!" Setting the table so that it looks like the family is just about to sit down for a meal together is one way to help convey that image. The encouraging news is that when someone expresses sincere appreciation for the comforts and features of your home, there's a good chance they'll find a place for it on their short list of possibilities!

Moving can be fun, exciting, and stressful all at the same time. With so many things happening and so much to keep track of, it can be easy to get overwhelmed.

 When you’re stressed and trying to multitask, there’s also an increased risk of personal injury and damaged belongings.

 While it may seem worth it to overlook safety in order to save time or money on moving day, it’s important to remember that you and your family’s health and well-being is much more important than saving a few minutes or dollars.

 In this article, we’re going to give you a few simple moving day tips that will help keep you and your belongings safe so you can rest easy on the first night in your new home.

 Ask for help

Many moving day injuries result from one person attempting to lift, carry, or move items that really require more hands. It’s easy to see how this mistake is made. Everyone is busy with their own tasks, whether they’re packing boxes or cleaning.

To avoid injury when lifting items, know your limits and always ask for help. If you don’t feel comfortable moving heavy items, now is no time to push yourself--you’ll be needed throughout the day, so depend on your family or hired movers.

Plan your route

Many damages and injuries occur when we haven’t properly prepared. Know the terrain of the place you’ll be carrying your items to. Plan ahead for the size of staircases, dangerous hills, or ruts in the ground. Put safety cones down in dangerous areas so no one is hurt or drops fragile items.

Load your truck wisely

Whether you’re moving far away or just a few blocks, a lot can go wrong once the truck starts moving. However, even if you don’t have many fragile items inside, there’s the risk of boxes toppling on you and your family when unloading the truck if the boxes haven’t been stacked wisely.

First, try to keep boxes lighter than what you’re comfortable carrying. It’s easier to move more boxes than to struggle with one particularly heavy one.

For heavier items, utilize equipment like dollies, hand trucks, and furniture sliders to protect you and your belongings.

Finally, practice smart loading and unloading techniques in your moving truck. Load the heaviest items (like appliances) first, and put lighter boxes on top of them. Think of loading like a game of Tetris--always aim for a strong foundation to stack on top of to avoid boxes falling on you or each other.

Take breaks

On moving day you may be on various deadlines, whether it’s moving trucks or getting things unloaded before sunset. However, it’s important that you take several breaks while loading and unloading, especially if you’re moving on a hot day.

First aid

Sometimes, even if you do everything right, mistakes can happen. It’s important to be prepared for when they do. Make sure you have a first aid kit in your moving truck that contains unexpired first aid supplies.

Be sure to have your cell phone handy and know the location of the nearest hospital in case of an emergency.

If you follow these tips, you should be on your way to having a successful, injury-free moving day.
