De-cluttering your Portland home is an important part of preparing it for sale. Buyers want to be able to imagine themselves and their belongings inside your home. However, this idea isn’t limited to the inside of your home. It also applies to your garage.

Cluttered, over-crowded garages turn buyers away. Fortunately, sprucing up your garage is easier than you think. Here are some tips to get you started.

Group related items

It just makes sense to store items together. If all your camping supplies are stored in one place, you won’t waste time anymore looking for them. Place each item on your list in a group, like painting supplies, home repairs, winter blankets, etc.

Create zones

Decide what you want to do with your garage.  If you want to park a car inside, designate a parking zone and don’t let anything but your car in that zone. Choose a work area where you can place a workbench or household projects.  Garage storage zones should be at different heights throughout the garage.

Give it some personality

Once your garage is organized and clean, make it more attractive with some decorative touches.  Paint the garage floor. Decorate it with an automotive theme.  Upgrade to an automatic garage door.
