Sellers: Dumping your junk


By Cindy-lou Schmidt, REALTOR®

Hello and welcome back real estate champions!

If you are selling your home for the first time, or you’ve done it a few times already, there are things you can do to make the transition easy and seamless so you can move on with your life.

When it comes to moving you’re often thinking about where you’re going and not so much about what you’re leaving behind other than the house. But that’s an important part of moving so you can help the buyers of your home have a nice fresh start.

Selling your home should mean that you’re leaving your home in clean condition both inside and outside— removing your garbage and your old belongings especially if you decide you don’t want large furniture such as a sofa or mattress.

Planning your move and taking the time to get rid of things early also avoids the last-minute ditching of a mountain of trash when you leave—and makes things much more calm. 😌

This week’s video is about leaving your home in clean, swept condition and that includes the outside—take your junk with you or away to the dump.

When it comes to getting rid of your junk, the courteous thing to do is to not leave it piled up on the curb. This is especially true for large items such as mattresses which have monthly pick up.

Dumping can result in a fine of $300 as well as make our Region not so nice to look at!

I encourage you instead to consider bringing your junk to the Region of Waterloo waste facilities on 925 Erb Street West, Waterloo. Read more about their drop off program here.
