The task proved to be more daunting than he could ever imagine! We have all heard about removing clutter and de-personalizing the home before placing on the market. His experience included dealing with moving large furniture, fixing all the little things that we all learn to live with over the years, and the dreaded what is behind those walls when the furniture is removed. What his experience really taught us was that you need to plan ahead as the process is generally more time and labor intensive than you think.
