Realtor’s Top 10 Tips for Staging your Home 

  • Remove Personal Photos:  Don’t distract potential buyers from key selling points of your home by displaying family photos.
  • Accentuate the Positive:  Whether it’s a staircase, a great view, stunning built-ins or a three-car garage, do something to make buyers linger in that magic space!
  • Hide Your Opinions:  Remove that wild boar mount, the talking fish lamp, and any politically charged material that expresses strong opinions.
  • Clean up Your Act:  Clutter is a killer! Get organized and a head start on your packing. Clean off that mantel, bedside table, and bookshelf. Less is more!!!
  • Embrace the Quietude:  Keep the TV off, and music low.
  • Smells Like Home:  Fresh baked cookies or a fresh scent air freshener in the laundry creates an inviting atmosphere
  • Add Paint: A fresh coat of paint is always a good investment and neutral is always best!
  • Pet Proof the Pad: Ask a good friend (or your real estate agent) to come by and give your home the “sniff” test.
  • Show off the Goods: Consider tagging items that will stay with the home to bring attention to selling features. Don’t overdo it though; no more than 5-10 items.
  • Go Away:  No buyer wants to discuss your home while you are standing there. Let the home speak for itself !  Give buyers a chance to browse and picture themselves living in your home.
