Home Staging

At the same time you think about all changes needed outside your front door, try to observe the interior of your home from the buyer's point of view. A good real estate agent can advise you of possible improvements that will attract more potential buyers.

Cleaning
Make sure your house is as clean as possible.
A clean home look more cared.

  • Clean each room thoroughly
  • Keep kitchen spotless
  • Thoroughly clean range/oven, refrigerator and other appliances
  • Clean and freshen bathrooms
  • Replace old toilet seats and shower curtains
  • Keep laundry items in closed basket
  • Clean or replace carpets, drapes and window blinds
  • Replace old bedspreads
  • Make sure to remove odors caused by pets, smoking and cooking

Space
Making your house more spacious is a key factor
when selling your home.

  • Consider holding a garage sale prior to showing your home
  • Remove unnecessary furniture to help make each room appear more spacious
  • Clear halls and stairs of clutter
  • Remove empty boxes and containers
  • Clear out accumulated items from closets, cabinets and under counters
  • Clean out the garage
  • Remove all clutter (garden tools, toys, etc.)

Maintenance
Little problems can leave a wrong image to potential buyers about
maintenance of larger items such as air conditioner, pluming, etc.

During Showings

Leave the house
Home buyers feel uncomfortable about opening closet doors and remaining for a really good look at the house if the seller is home.

Take your pets with you
Pets can scare some people and irritate others.

  • Repair dripping faucets and leaking toilets
  • Replace faulty wall switches and outlets
  • Touch up paint
  • Clean and repair windows
  • Repair seals around tubs and sinks
  • Replace burned-out light bulbs
  • Oil squeaking doors
  • Tighten loose cabinet knobs
  • Fasten loose tread plates
  • Make repairs where needed
Make a list of objectives and choose what needs to be done first.

Consult with an experienced real estate agent to learn what improvements will make your home more marketable in comparison to similar properties on the market in your area.
