Top 3 Tips for Staging Your Home to Sell


So you are looking to sell your home.  Here are the top three tips to make sure your home looks good, above and beyond cleaning.

1. Let there be Light! – Open all shades and blinds.  Turn on every single light that exists in your house.  The more light the better.

2. De-Clutter – Anything and everything.  If it can be moved and put away, do so.  You want every room to feel like there is as much space as possible.  I have had clients rent storage space for a month or two just to clear out their space.

3. De-Personalize – Pictures, collectibles, crazy colors.  You want to take yourself out of the house as much as possible, so that the buyer can put themselves in it. Neutral colors and generic art are the best.

For number two and three, realize that you are moving.  Start packing now, and pack any of these thing that you can.  These three simple recommendations will make your house more salable.
