Staging your home for sale is not decorating or interior design. It’s preparing your home for sale by de-cluttering, depersonalizing, cleaning and making your home appeal to as many buyers as possible.
If your Realtor has suggested that you stage the home the first thing you need to do is take yourself out of the picture. Although many elements of staging can be done on your own, making your house appeal to as many buyers as possible may require additional furniture, accessories and paint colors to help potential buyers envision themselves using the space and give your home what we like to call the ‘wow’ factor. If you’re having problems pulling it all together or seeing past the way you live in the home you may need to consider hiring a professional stager.
A professional stager will work with you to put together a plan and decide what you can do and what they can do for you. They have the knowledge and the resources to help you get your home ready for sale in the quickest amount of time and as stress free as possible. Staging should be fun and ultimately sell your house at top dollar in the quickest amount of time.
