Home Staging - Should You Hire A Professional

Home staging is the latest trend in real estate, and if you are selling your home you are likely at least aware of what this growing practice involves.  Home staging is a marketing strategy that encourages you to make your home as presentable as it can be to buyers by dressing the interior and exterior of your house so that it looks more like a model home.  While there are a number of interior designers, experts, and even REALTORS® who can offer you advice on staging your home for sale, for most sellers a few simple tips can save you the expense of hiring a home stager.

Clean Is Key

The most important tip to remember when preparing your home for resale is to make it clean, clean, clean.  The last thing a potential buyer will want to see is a sink full of dishes or a grimy tub.  This may seem like a simple task, but the cleaner it looks the more interest it will receive.

Clear The Clutter

Another important tip when staging your home is to lose the clutter.  Keeping rooms simple, modern, and tasteful is key.  Also be sure that each room has a clear purpose and that everything in the room fits that purpose.  This is also a good time to depersonalize your home.  Remove family photos, personal collections, and anything else that may not appeal to potential buyers or that may detract from the features of your home.

Curb Appeal

When staging your home, don’t forget to consider the appeal of the property itself.  Be sure your front lawn is mowed and free of weeds, you have a tidy and presentable yard, and that the features of both the front and back yards are highlighted.  You also want the potential of your property to be apparent to buyers who may want to make improvements.

There are some cases when you may also want to consider renting furniture or adding additional touches, but in most cases these simple steps can really make a big difference in getting the most for your home.  A REALTOR® can give you all the advice you need to prepare your home for a quick sale.
