I should have stated that it doesn't have a "direct impact" on the value of your home. They base the value on comparable sales. If your neighbors houses are in pristine condition, clutter will hurt the "value" because the buyer will expect to pay less for your house verses the competition down the street. So, my previous post was about the ability to sell if the house is priced correctly based off of others in the area. If you live in a very desirable area you probably don't have to do anything to sell it. If you live in a suburb that is not as desirable you will need to make it attractive. Hope this helps.
It seemed to help me because I just sold a house. So, thanks!
