Organize and clean
Pare down clutter and pack up your least-used items, such as large blenders and other kitchen tools, out-of-season clothes, toys, and exercise equipment. Store items off-site or in boxes neatly arranged in the garage or basement. If there are multiple family photos throughout the home, remove the majority of them until you move into your new home. Clean the windows, carpets, walls, lighting fixtures, and baseboards to make the house shine.
