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.

M.C. Dwyer hi M.C,,,, thanks ever so much for the reblog. I consider this an important topic... I've never had a really well staged home languish on the market so it's a fundamental step in selling a home quickly and for top dollar.

Sally K. & David L. Hanson Buyers' lack of spatial / visualization ability came as a surprise to me initially, but I've seen it so predominantly now that I believe rooms should not be left empty, and that staging highlights each room's best features.     Thanks for stopping by!
