Stage Your Home To Sell

Staging your home is a powerful way to sell it faster and at a higher price. Here are some easy, affordable ways you can ensure your property is ready for the spotlight!

 

    • Clean Thouroughly – A clean home is a sign that you’ve taken good care of your property, so ensure yours is spotless.  Give everything a deep clean from floor to ceiling, keeping in mind that homebuyers will look in closets, cabinets and under sinks.
    • Declutter – Not only is clutter an eyesore, but it also makes your home appear smaller.  Now’s the time to get rid of things you no longer need or consider getting a temporary storage unit.  Give extra attention to closets, cabinets and pantries to give the impression of ample storage.
    • Lighten Up – Great lighting can make your home feel more inviting.  Let in as much natural light as possible by opening all curtains and blinds.  Turn on all the lights in every room, including closets – this saves buyers from having to hunt for light switches – and upgrade to high wattage bulbs.
    • Set the Stage – Buyers want to envision themselves living in your home.  Remove items like family photos, framed diplomas, keepsakes, kid’s artwork or toys.  If you have pets, remove their toys, beds and feeding dishes.
