Home Sellers Staging Guide to a Faster, More Profitable Sale

Click here to find out your homes value in TODAY'S market!
  • A sparkling home! Bathrooms, kitchens, carpets/flooring, windows and exterior should appear fresh and new with surfaces that appear to be germ free and smell fresh.
  • Create a cohesive, well balanced and upscale environment buyers aspire to own. Furniture should be positioned to create a warm and inviting conversation area buyers can envision spending time with family and friends in. Draw attention to views and features through the use of line and color. Accessories per surface should generally range from 1-3 decorative items and no more than 5. Functional and everyday items should be put away for showings.
  • Outdated areas may deter a sale. Inexpensive solutions include updating light fixtures and switch plates, cabinetry knobs, faucets. Studies show most updates actually have 100% or higher return on investment.
  • Paint should appear fresh. If walls are dinged or marked up, a paint job is in order. A neutral tone balanced with white trim and ceilings feels custom and upscale.
  • Pets should be put away during showings.
  • Carpeting should be stain free. If large visible stains and the shape of the carpeting is not good, consider replacing it
  • Window treatments should be clean, attractive and frame the window. If there is an undesirable view, add an attractive sheer to maintain the room’s brightness.
  • Rooms should be shown for their intended purpose.
  • Curb appeal that has appeal! Fill in dirt areas with ground cover or inexpensive bark for a neater appearance. Trash cans and yard equipment should be stowed out of sight. Showcase views by trimming back any plantings or overgrowth.
