It's a Seller's Market - Why Stage?
Staging helps buyers see themselves living in your home. Remember,
first impressions count!
It is easy to de-clutter and de-personal your home. Picture the rooms from your favorite home show or magazine. Here are three tips, followed by a few examples, to easily stage your home
1. Thoroughly clean your entire home.
Scrub dirt, grime, and stains from walls, cabinets, and
backsplashes. Top to bottom, every nook and cranny. Repair cracks and holes in
the walls and touch up the paint. Make every single area neat, organized and
2. Remove all personal items.
photos, personal treasures, and all pet paraphernalia. Buyers are
understandably curious and will focus more attention on your personal items
than picturing themselves comfortably in your home.
3. Consider renting a storage unit
to remove excess and oversized furniture.
Make each room look open. Clean out your closets and consider storing out of
season clothes to make them look spacious. If you have a two-car garage, make
sure you can fit two cars in it now.
Finally, make your home inviting. Set the table. Have a bottle of
wine with a loaf of fresh bread about to be cut. Or, a bottle of sparkling
water with a bowl of fresh limes and lemons. Contact us for your Complete Staging Checklist.
Here are a few examples from 2017 Coastal Living IdeaHouse.

It looks like there is plenty of room in this closet for any buyer. Note the open spaces on the shoe shelves, there is room for a chair, and there is plenty of space for hanging clothes.
