Steps to Making Your Home Look Great for Potential Buyers


Top 5 Rules to Staging Your Home to Sell

  1. De-Personalize: Buyers need to picture themselves in the house, not you.  Pack up your collections. It says clutter bug to a buyer and while you may have it artfully displayed, you do not want to detract the buyer from the main attraction – your home.
  2. Maximize: Declutter and maximize the space in your home.  Closets packed tight with all your clothes makes a place look like it lacks closet space.  Consider temporarily storing the overflow offsite.
  3. Sanitize: This is the easiest and cheapest way to clean your home – just clean it.  It is well worth the elbow grease in cleaning floors, walls, ceiling fans and windows.
  4. Modernize: Almost all homes can benefit from updating.  If someone feels the home is dated, they will reflect that feeling in a lower offer.  Consider simple changes like swapping out gold fixtures for nickel or chrome.  
  5. Neutralize: Color can make or break a buyers interest in your home.  You may love that bright red wall, but all the buyer sees is a great deal of painting in their future. Painting is one of the most inexpensive ways to change a look of a home.
