How to Stage Your Home so it will Sell Quickly and for the Best Price Possible!

When staging your home – you want to create a mood.  You want your home to have that “HOMEY Feeling” as the buyer enters the front door.  You want the home to look well cared for, clean, bright, large and open, warm.  You want the buyer visualizing themselves moving in the minute they start walking through it.  Their agent should see “BUYING signs” as soon as they show your home. 

There is a lot that must be done before you are ready to stage your home.  First you must do a thorough cleaning, de-cluttering, painting, touching up, repairing, freshening the look of each room.  Staging is what you do after you’ve done all that.  It’s all about dressing the house for sale.

It’s about the final touches and little details.  Think of it as if you’re getting ready to put your home on the runway for everyone to see it in the best fashion show.  After all, photos will be all over the internet, buyers and agents will be coming to see it.  You want every detail to look its best.  You want to shine and you want to sell quickly.  Homes usually get most activity in the first 6-8 weeks.  So get ready and show your best.
