Staging Tips

The difference between “just okay” and homes that WOW! When you’re ready to sell, staging puts your home’s best foot forward. De-cluttering and de-personalizing common rooms is important to the process, but don’t overlook these factors that will leave lasting impressions on buyers:

When it comes to listing your home, there’s no single set of black-and-white rules that apply to every property and every seller. But check out these things to think about as you walk through your home with an agent or stager.

Store Personal Items

As your real estate team, our goal is to make sure your house appeals to the largest segment of likely buyers in order to secure the best possible price. In order to do this, it’s important to make sure the buyer can picture themselves in your house, so that means safely storing any personal items.

Minimize Furniture

Rearranging and even storing furniture will allow your house to appear more spacious as well as show off its charm and unique details.

Go Easy on Scents

One buyer might love the smell of a candle or freshly baked cookies, another might not. It’s best to keep scents neutral and minimal in order to boost appeal.

Curb Appeal

The first impression is often the most important. We will help you identify landscaping that complements your house’s distinctive style.

Create a Hotel-like Space

Some of the best hotels invite guests to feel at home – and that is precisely what a buyer should feel when viewing your house.

Show off Storage

Clearing out closets and other storage areas will show off their size and capacity.
