Staging Your Home For Sale

People don't buy houses, they buy homes. Make your home look like a model suite by creating lots of open space. This means sorting through all the clutter--give it away, hold a yard sale or throw it. Make as much space as possible in the closets.

Help potential buyers envisage themselves living in your home. Prepare your house for home staging by cleaning it thoroughly. Have the carpets and drapes steam-cleaned. Scrub the kitchen, bathrooms, laundry room, hallways, and all tiling. Wash the walls, trim, ceilings and floors.

Arrange furniture to make each room look like a spacious model home. However, with vacant home staging, too much empty space can work against you. Large empty rooms look like caverns and small rooms look smaller when empty. Home stage empty rooms with comfy furniture and accessories to give a sense of proportion.

Detach your emotions from your home and remove personal items such as photos, medications, and mementos. The potential buyer needs to picture their own possessions in your home.

The potential buyer's first impression of your home is critical. Staging your home starts at the curb. Give your home curb appeal. Mow the lawn, sweep the yard, weed the beds, and plant some colourful flowers. Brighten up the doors and windows with fresh paint. Like a wrapped gift, the more enticing the wrapping is, the more excited people are to see what's inside.
