Staging to Sell

Simply put, staging is the act of setting a “stage” to present your home in the best possible way to future buyers. No, you don’t have to be a designer or have brand-new furniture to create a beautiful presentation that will “WOW!” During our listing presentation, we will make suggestions of re-arranging furniture, de-cluttering and much more!

Before we meet up for a listing consultation…here are some staging basics!

  • Remove 50% of clothing from closets – try to put away/store in bins clothing items that aren’t in-season. This will make your closets appear much larger than they are!
  • Create “ease of flow.” Buyers want to be able to move around freely and not feel closed in. Try to remove anything that encroaches on main walking areas throughout your home or makes rooms feel small. 
  • De-personalize. Take down the majority of your family photos or anything that gives a clue to your personal/professional life. This allows a buyer to “put themselves in the house” and visualize themselves living there.
  • Finally, make an entrance! Put a fresh coat of paint on the front door, add some colorful potted plants by the entry & a welcoming doormat. Little things like this make a house instantly feel like a home!
