Selling Your Home? Staging Matters. Stage Your Home For Success! {Infographic}

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

 

Why Staging Matters

Staging your home for success means having your home appeal to the greatest number of prospective buyers by highlighting your home's strengths and downplaying its weaknesses. Staging matters when you're selling your home. And the good news is that staging your home does not need to cost a lot of money. However, taking the time to stage will reduce the amount of time your home is on the market and more than likely sell for a higher amount.... lots of return for the investment of time and minimal dollars.

 

 

Staging Tips For Success

In addition to the staging tips in the infographic below which covers staging tips we've all heard many times and include depersonalizing your home, freeing up closet space, neutralizing with paint, don't forget to:

  • Declutter and remove furniture to make rooms feel more spacious.
  • Enhance the lighting in your home and swap out the low wattage bulbs for higher wattage. Let the light in and open curtains/drapes/blinds.
  • Go for symmetry when placing lamps, artwork, accessories.
  • Don't forget your pantry... clean it up, "stage" the items on the shelves.
  • Put trash cans and cleaning supplies out of sight.
  • Neutralize the master suite... make it gender neutral and use soothing colors.
  • Clean, clean, clean... kitchens, bathrooms, floors, windows. Use professional cleaners for carpets. Everything should sparkle.
  • Stage your front porch and your patio. Freshen up the front porch and front door with paint if needed; pressure wash.
  • Clean up your mailbox... often it's the first thing prospective buyers see. Replace it if necessary.
  • Freshen up your front door and make sure doorbells and locks look fresh and actually work.
  • If you have pets, remove litter boxes from view, eliminate odors, put away food dishes, remove furniture that's been damaged by pets.
  • Don't forget your garage. If you use it for storage, make it neat and not looking as if it's taking over all the parking space.

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 hi Sheila... the problem that arises is when a home seller believes how their home is "done" has universal appeal and can't be improved upon!

Will Hamm thanks, Will. When I have prospective clients who refuse to take my advice and I really believe it will hinder my ability to sell their home, I've been known to walk away from that listing.

Roy Kelley hi Roy... I see so many houses that have not had the most basic staging preparation when they're listed and I watch my buyers react very negatively to what they are seeing. And there's no excuse for it... so much can be done for little to no money and some elbow grease.

Nina,

 Now you know that I love this great post and it's so wonderful when Homeowners are 'on board' with having a Professional Stager come in and do their 'staging magic' even by rearranging, repurposing and removing items and furniture!  The Owner Occupied ones need it the most!

Staging is an INVESTMENT with a great return! . . . Brings in more commission for the Realtor . . . more for the Seller!!  It has always been a treat for me to come do the Staging Consultations for your clients, Nina! I look forward to helping you again soon.  We make a great team!  Every Realtor should have an excellent Professional Home Stager and, of course, a Professional Photographer that they can depend on!  YOU ROCK!!

Hello Nina - presentation matters.  Whether it be ourselves while "out and about" or a home for sale when attempting to make the right impression.  Your well-staged post proves that importance.
