Home Staging Basics

There are five basic areas that need to be addressed with preparing your house to sell:

Declutter – many people hate this word, but it is a home staging basic! To put it bluntly, if you don’t take the time to pack up excess décor and knick-knacks, family photos and your collections, it may very well cost you an offer from a potential buyer. I promise, people will get caught up in looking at your “stuff” rather than the features of the house. Embrace decluttering – it can be very freeing! Read the rest of this entry »


If I could change one thing in my house, it would be to have a large, beautiful closet complete with built-in dressers and shoe organizers, jewelry storage, bench or chaise lounge and changing area. Since that isn’t the case, we make do with what we have.  It is decent sized, but not large enough to hold both of mine and my husband’s clothes for all seasons.  Every summer and winter my husband and I swap out our clothes and store off season items in a spare bedroom closet.

I recently went on vacation in Arizona. In order to pack, I had to drag my off-season summer clothes out from the other closet.  The result when I got home was a jam packed closet mixed with all of my winter and most of my summer clothes.  And here it sat for the next couple of weeks.

What is Occupied Home Staging?

For almost six years, I have been working with sellers to guide and help them in getting their house ready to sell. On occasion, I still meet a seller who is unfamiliar with what home staging is exactly.  In a nutshell, home staging is preparing a house (both the interior and exterior) to sell; its visual marketing of a house – and, it is much more than just decorating and making it look pretty.  The goal in staging a house to sell is to showcase it so that it appeals to a majority of buyers, which often times will result in a quicker sale for more money.

During the initial home staging consultation with a seller, the house is assessed as to what steps should be taken in order to get it ready to show its best on the market. These steps include deep cleaning, de-cluttering, addressing all repair work, neutralizing the house and possibly updating in key areas.

I sometimes get asked the question “How much time should I plan for to prepare my house for selling?”  My answer is always “As much time as you can”.  The moment you know that your house is going to be put on the market for sale, you need to start the process of marketing it to sell.

I cannot tell you how many phone calls and emails I have gotten where the homeowner wants to list the house “next week”.  I just silently cringe to myself, because I know that 99.9% of the time, that is simply not enough time to do all that should be done.

It’s incredible how easily we all accumulate “stuff”.  Especially if you have lived in your house for a while, chances are you have a lot of “stuff”.  This “stuff” is shoved in closets, utility rooms, cabinets, storage rooms, piled up in the garage and so on.  I get it, I really do – I am the queen of “stuff”.
