TOP 10 MOST IMPORTANT STAGING TIPS TO SELL YOUR HOME
As an Interior Designer / Real Estate Agent, the first question I am asked by fellow agents and prospective clients is "How do I sell this home to buyers "?
Staging is not a new concept, just a new word to describe what I have done for years in Real Estate design.
After 20 years "staging" and decorating homes to sell, I have the put together my top 10 quick tip list.
The countdown starts now.....
Staging tip #10
Approach your house as if you were the buyer. I constantly tell my clients we are selling SPACE, not STUFF. If your buyer does not visually see the open airy space when they walk in the front door then you just lost your "15 second" first impression.
"How do I stage"? That is the question
Allow your traffic to flow as you enter the home. Remove or move furniture that is blocking the open flow. An example: walking into the room and coming face to face with the back of a sofa will block the invitation to the home. Remind your client about the importance of 1st impression. Stage the rooms to invite buyers in, not to stop them at the door
Staging is not about personalizing your home......it is about selling your home
YOU ARE SELLING THE SPACE NOT THE STUFF. Sellers will see all stuff in their new home....BUT ONLY AFTER YOU SELL THE CURRENT HOUSE
LESS IS ALWAYS MORE WHEN SELLING A HOME
Stay tuned for #9......."Where do I put the STUFF"?
