Staging your home to sell

If you want your home to sell fast. decorating and decluttering to “set the stage” for potential buyers should be at the top of your to-do list. Staging your home showcases its best features and helps buyers visualize their families in the space. Here are 10 tips to get you started.

  • Apply a fresh coat of paint in neutral
    colors. It’s also a good idea to remove
    outdated wallpaper as potential buyers may not
    share your design taste.
  • Open blinds and drapes to let in natural
    light. Replace or remove old blinds and clear
    your light fixtures of dust and cobwebs.
  • Make repairs where needed. Fix running
    toilets, squeaky doors, chipped paint, broken
    fixtures and anything else that will distract from the
    desirability of your home.
  • Remove all personal items and photos. You
    want a buyer to picture his or her family in the
    space, not yours. Store the kids’ toys away, too.
  • Clean inside and out. Mop, dust, vacuum,
    repeat. No one wants to move into a house
    with a moldy shower or sticky refrigerator. If you
    can’t handle the cleaning yourself, hire a company
    to do it for you.
  • Spruce up landscaping. Plant flowers, trim
    bushes, weed the garden, mow the lawn
    and fix any unsightly cracks in your driveway
    or sidewalk.colorful-garden-and-beautiful-landscape-staging-home-for-sale
  • Deel utter your space. Clean up rooms,
    closets, cabinets, drawers and bathrooms,
    especially bathrooms. Stow away your personal
    hygiene items and medications as well.
  • Remove odors. Clean and deodorize, paying
    special attention to bathrooms and places
    where pets and kids congregate. Use baking
    soda and lemon to remove sink and garbage
    disposal odors.
  • Replace worn out furniture and carpet.
    Remove any furniture that is too big for
    your space, as large pieces can make a room
    look smaller.
  • Update lighting. Dark homes can appear
    dreary. Insta lling new pendant lights and
    ceiling fan fixtures can make a big difference when
    it comes to selling your home.light fixture install
