Yes, along with everything else in your home you really do have to stage your closets when you sell your home.
Why do I have to stage my closets?
- Buyers will look in them and behind every other closed door
- Packed closets tell buyers that there is not enough storage space in your home
- Everything in your home makes an impression
How do I stage my closet to sell my house?
Basically give it some room, meaning don’t have it crammed full. Take out clothes that are out of season and put them in storage. Use baskets to bring some organization to the chaos. If there is anything you don’t need now garage sale it or donate it! You will have to move it eventually anyway.
I need help!
You may have seen online that there is a real trend toward almost decorating every space in your home. Check out this really great looking closet from IHeartOrganizing.

You have to help the buyer see the potential.
