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!

Clean – a clean house is a must when it is on the market. I am not just talking about the illusion of being clean; top to bottom, inside and out, your house needs to have a deep, detailed cleaning. It may be worthwhile to hire a professional cleaning service for this very important task. A clean home not only looks and smells better, but it shows potential buyers that the house has been well cared for.

Repair – we all have those nuisance home repairs we never seem to get to. When you are trying to sell your house, you must fix them! If you think potential buyers won’t notice what you have grown accustomed to, you are wrong.

Broken tiles need to be repaired; burnt out light bulbs need be replaced; cracks in cement need to be filled. If you neglect these items, buyers will tally up the necessary repairs along with the cost and time involved and check your home right off their list. I promise that the effort and investment to fix every repair will be worthwhile.

Neutralize – proper home staging aims to make a house appealing to a mass market and shows buyers the features and possibilities a home has. This means that a seller’s personalization within the home needs to be removed. And that doesn’t mean that everything needs to be gray, white or beige. In fact, neutrals can be quite boring if not done right with layers and textures. Color is good, but they need to be the right colors, applied strategically in the right places.

Update – today’s buyers have extremely high expectations. Most still expect granite countertops and stainless appliances in the kitchen. Depending on the value of your house, you may need to make higher cost investments so that your house is competitive in the market. Low cost updates include a paint change or refresh, updated light fixtures, updated hardware on doors, closets, cabinets and drawers and fresh mulch in the yard’s landscaped areas.
