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.

The other reason to de-personalize has to do with safety. Buyers rummaging through your house are strangers and it would be better if they don’t know who lives there, or have access to any other personal data.
Kitchen: fix drawers that jam or sticky. Buyers do open them.
Garage: store toxic items if not out of sight then out of reach from children and pets.
Living Room: dress up the living room in a formal and reserved manner; e.g. tasteful artworks and nice furniture. You want to make this room an attractive place for potential buyers to sit down and rest their legs.
Pets: It may not be to your liking but pets distract in many different ways. They smell for one thing. Some buyers are allergic to them. Others are afraid of them. It’s worse when they are noisy (like barking or meowing) or being overly friendly (like jumping on your buyers). You should never let aggressive pets anywhere near your buyers.
