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.

After you've packed, try to store them offsite. But when this isn't possible, choose a corner in the basement or crawlspace and stack packed items away neatly. Do not use the garage or the spare bedroom as a storage area. They provide more value when you exhibit them as living space.
Landscaping: patch retaining walls if cracks have developed. Call a mason if necessary.
Light fixtures: remove the light cover (when practical) and bulbs. Clean, dry and replace. Put in new bulbs if necessary.
Laundry Room: store dirty clothes and linens in a closed hamper. This keeps dirty laundry in one place and not all over your house.
Mistake #5: Focusing too much on expensive remodeling as opposed to making small improvements to help sell your house. You can save thousands by focusing on the little things.
