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.

Holding a garage sale is another good way to get rid of things quickly. Just remember these tips: 1. Price everything to sell. 2. Provide a freebee bin to attract customers. A freebee bin is great for hard-to-get-rid items. 3. Look to lower the price further if the stuff isn’t selling. Remember, you don’t want it crawling back into your house.
Replace cracked light switch plates and outlet covers.
Kitchen: remove hard water build-up around the faucet base. Shine chrome and brass faucets.
Family/Living Room: create space by losing some furniture; for example, an ottoman and end tables are often not needed. Removing the loveseat also frees up the end tables that go with it. Remember, you’re selling space. Anything you do should complement the space, not rob it.
Pets: one option is to find someone to pet-sit them during a showing. Otherwise, keep them in a kennel and let the buyers know you have pets. Keep your fingers crossed that the buyers won’t mind.
