Stagging tips to get your home ready to hit the market

Stagging tips to get your home ready to hit the market

1. Boost curb appeal. It is just the first impression. Many people thinking of touring your home will do a quick drive-by first, often deciding on the spot if it is even worth a look inside.

2. Welcome visitors with a charming porch. Even if you have only a tiny stoop, make it say “welcome home” with a clean doormat, potted plants in bloom and — if you have room — use pieces of neat porch furniture.

3. Get your house sparkling clean. From shining floors and gleaming windows to clean counters and scrubbed grout, every surface should sparkle. 

4. Choose sophisticated neutral colors. It is not the time to experiment with fun different colors....just keep neutral.

5. Clear away all clutter. If you are serious about staging your home, all clutter must go!

6. Stage the outdoors too. Even if it is a teensy postage stamp–size balcony, or bigger backyard, people need to think, "charming space to entertain".

 7. Rearrange your furniture. In the living room, use pairs of sofas, chairs, lamps to create an inviting conversation area.

8. Style your dining room table. This is a blind spot in decorating the home.

9. Take a good look at your floors. At the minimum, give all floors a thorough cleaning (and steam clean carpets), and consider having wood floors refinished.

10. Entice people to explore the whole house. By placing something that draws the eye at the top of the stairs, in hallways or in corners, you pique curiosity and keep potential buyers interested throughout the whole home tour.
