Staging your house can drastically increase your chances of a fast sale and may also give you a nice boost in your selling price. It takes some effort upfront but its well worth the effort. In this article, we’ll go over the basics of staging your home. In just a few minutes, you’ll know exactly how to stage your home for the fastest and most profitable sale.
Step #1 – Clean Out Your House
The first and often most difficult step is cleaning out your house. All your personal belongings apart from furniture that you’re using to stage your house must go.
If you haven’t moved in to your new house yet, a great strategy is to rent a storage unit. A storage unit is usually very cheap and you can store all your belongings until you’re ready to move.
Step #2 – Arrange Your Furniture
Arrange your furniture in a way that really showcases the house. When in doubt, an empty room is better than furniture that doesn’t look good.
Make sure that there’s enough light coming into the rooms. Pull back your curtains and bring in lights if the lighting is dim.
One thing that’s often neglected with home staging is the smell or scent in the rooms. Make sure your house smells nice. Candles or air refreshers can make a big difference.
Step #3 – Have Your House Critiqued
Have your real estate agent look over your staging and give you a good critique. A good real estate agent will know exactly what to look for in staging a house.
Once you’ve had your real estate agent look over your house, make the changes that he/she recommended. This review process can often take a bit of time, so get started as early as you can.
