How To Stage Your Home for Sale

If you've ever watched those real estate TV shows, you've seen homes "staged" for sale.

Professional home staging is a technique utilized to sell a home here in Chittenden County. Some advantages to home staging MAY include fewer days on the market and higher offers. BUT before you try out professional home staging for a quicker home sale, I suggest starting wih the basics.

First, pack up whatever you can and declutter.  Then look at your closets. Do they look roomy? Closets with little in them make a great impression. Then, look at your entryway. That's a really great place to make a good first impression.                              Your mudroom/entryway can really set the scene for a good showing.

Use these home staging pointers to get started:

Curb Appeal

First, look at the outside of your house, or your curb appeal. Take a fresh look at the outside of your home from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What wonderful characteristics seem to fade into the background? Knowing this helps us to decide what actions we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your home's exterior isn't up to par with retouched paint and colorful garden plants it's time to get those things done. Refer to the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your house's final selling price.

Welcome Home

Could a buyer see themselves enjoying game night in your living space, reading a good book in your spa tub or hosting a dinner in your eat-in kitchen? I want your home to pleasantly accept buyers and give them a sense of comfort. I'll help you do this by recommending small improvements that enhance the features of your house. I'll tell you put in storage anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Tabletops should be clutter-free. Arts and crafts, sentimental items, family photos, and play time drawings should get moved out of sight. I can help you simplify the decor of house. Unattractive or messy spots make your home look smaller and buyers have a harder time imagining themselves living there.

I'll look over each room of your home. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need a fresh coat of paint, carpet needing to be changed, fixtures that could use brightening, and any other improvement that can quickly be made to help produce and offer on your home.

I'll make sure that your home is likable and that it's welcoming, steering clear of "offensive" or "personalized" colors on the walls and furniture. And if you've already moved out, you can try temporary furnishings. You want your house to look inviting as opposed to deserted.
