Staging Your Home to Sell!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty
If you are considering selling your home, now is the perfect time to turn up your AC and begin the process. We live in a home one way, and when we get ready to sell our home, we 'stage' the home for showing in another! The process begins with clearing out the 'clutter' and 'organizing' your home / counters / closets / vanities/ drawers!  The rule is to 'REMOVE' 2/3rds of the clutter!  YES, you are reading this correctly. Go in every room and prioritize... make piles, of the items you want, don't want and those you are donating or giving away.  Then make the calls to donate etc. and pack everything else. Clearly label the cartons so if you need access to something it will be easier. Nowis also a good time to rent public storage. This will make your chore much easier later on.  Step back, I bet the room looks different already! It might not look perfect to you, but to a buyer it is going to look wonderful!  For additional tips feel free to visit my website or give me a call. http://www.RocklandHouses.com or 845-638-1081  Stay cool!

Nice post Sheryl!

You are so right about the clutter... all it does is distract buyers.

Good advice Sheryl.  Have found that taking pictures of family and friends off the wall also removes a great distraction.

Good advice for sellers.

It's a continual source of amazement to me how many listing agents do not advise their clients on the importance of both decluttering their homes BEFORE putting them on the market but simple to give them a good cleaning both inside and out.
