Home Staging Prepare Your House For Sale

House Staging

For many people, preparing their house for sale means only dusting, vacuuming and mopping. In other words, they are selling their house as-is. A couple of things will almost certainly happen:

  • The house languishes on the market for months and eventually the seller cuts the listing price, or worse, it never gets sold.
  • The offers, if any, reflect the as-is condition of the house, which is usually a lot lower than the listing price.
  • The sellers get frustrated because they are getting calls from bargain hunters who are looking for a cheap house to fix them up themselves.

You don't want this to happen to you. Your goal is to sell your house as quickly and as profitably as possible. To do that you'll need to stage your house.

Prepare Your House For Sale is a four-step plan designed to maximize the value of your house. We examine the importance of decluttering, repairing, cleaning and revitalizing. Each step builds on the other to turn your home into the kind of desirable sanctuary that buyers look for in any market condition.

Items you should consider tossing: broken stuff that you’ve never had the time to fix (and you never will).
Replace cracked light switch plates and outlet covers.
Garage: store toxic items if not out of sight then out of reach from children and pets.
Lighting: replace the solid door of your study room with a French door so light can permeate to the rest of the house. To upgrade inexpensively, buy a French glass insert and install it yourself.
Every room should have a clutter bin. This is where you stow away your everyday-use items. You can purchase these plastic containers just about anywhere. Encourage your family to use the bins as much as possible. Put them away in a convenient place (underneath the bed, in the pantry, etc.) before a showing. Buyers are curious people but they won’t open containers.
