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.

Put away heirlooms that your buyers may mistake as permanent fixtures; for example, the nice ceiling chandelier or the wall sconce that have been in your family for generations. Swap it for something else that goes well with the other fixtures in the house. This will prevent any haggling later.
Bathrooms: replace chipped or cracked mirrors. Large hardware stores usually carry a good selection of mirrors you can choose from.
Clean the area around your fireplace and then the fireplace itself.
Lighting: use higher wattage bulbs without exceeding the fixture’s capacity. It’s labeled either on the side of the light socket or on the inside.
Showing: you’ve decluttered, repaired, cleaned, revitalized, and your house looks fabulous. Now you want to keep it that way while you’re trying to sell it. This is another challenge onto itself: to prevent the house from drifting back to ‘clutter-land’ after all your hard work. Create three to-do lists: weekly, daily, and showing.
