How to Prepare for a Home Staging

Posted by: | Comments Off |

Do you know how to stage your home for interested prospects? I have been staging homes for many years and I can tell you that the number one thing people don’t know about staging is how little it can cost. Seriously, staging your home can cost next to nothing and can lessen the time your house on the market.

Here are some tips by the trusty HGTV

  • Set your listing price by utilizing area comparables, not based upon what you need to buy that ostrich farm.
  • Put personal collections away someplace safe, like a bank vault in Zurich.
  • Invest in a fresh coat of paint and get 150 percent green back on your investment.
  • Disclose everything, especially the stuff you are tempted not to.
  • Fix all running toilets, or risk flushing profits down the drain.
  • Remember that “outside” is the new “inside.” Show off all of your living spaces.
  • Visit model homes to see how neutrality and spaciousness are made to feel so inviting.
  • Grind a lemon in the garbage disposal – it smells great and it’s such great exercise.
  • Display the kind of plants that aren’t injection-molded and painted in a factory somewhere overseas.
  • Keep your day job. Hire an agent and assist them in doing what they do best
