So You're Selling Your Home - Now What? Advice from a Morris County Stager

You’ve decided to sell, your home is now a commodity and must be looked at like one. You want the highest dollar amount on your biggest single investment. Here are some advice and tips from a Morris County Stager to help you with the process.

The #1 thing when selling is to listen to your Realtor when they tell you what your home is worth. The biggest mistake you can make is setting the price too high. Your property will sit on the market, become stale and you’ll start receiving low-ball offers, if any at all!

Address any and all issues before you put your home on the market – they are going to turn up in the home inspection anyway. Fix that running toilette, leaky sink, torn screen, old doorbell and dated, rundown mailbox.  

Clean every square inch of your home – you’re going to have to do this when you move, so why not do it now so buyers see a clean, well maintained, fresh smelling home. Nothing sends buyers away quicker than a dirty, smelly home! And, it’s free!

Look at your home through a buyer’s eyes as if you were buying your home (photos can help – you’ll see things you never noticed like chipped paint, clutter, dirty carpet and walls along with other flaws you’re so used to looking you don’t see any more.  

Don’t neglect closets and storage spaces. Buyers do look inside your cabinets and closets to see if their stuff will fit. Organize and store what you don’t need and open up these spaces to show how much room they have.

Walk through your home making sure there is plenty of space to move freely about within rooms, and throughout the home. Think about storing big furniture you don’t absolutely need to  open up the room so buyers can see the space and its architectural features.  

Pack up all valuables, collections and family photos – we want potential buyers to connect with your home and see themselves living in it, not you.

Research home stagers in the area and call for a consultation – they are the experts on preparing homes to sell. A good home stager will re-purpose what you already have, give the most important jobs to tackle for the biggest bang for your buck.

Home Stagers understand furniture placement, highlighting your home's architectural features and creating important emotional connection points. Moreover, they know how to update your home using accessories and art for as little money as possible – they are pros at this!
