Home Staging Prepare Your House For Sale

House Staging

For many people, preparing their house for sale means only dusting, vacuuming and mopping. In other words, they are selling their house as-is. A couple of things will almost certainly happen:

  • The house languishes on the market for months and eventually the seller cuts the listing price, or worse, it never gets sold.
  • The offers, if any, reflect the as-is condition of the house, which is usually a lot lower than the listing price.
  • The sellers get frustrated because they are getting calls from bargain hunters who are looking for a cheap house to fix them up themselves.

You don't want this to happen to you. Your goal is to sell your house as quickly and as profitably as possible. To do that you'll need to stage your house.

Prepare Your House For Sale is a four-step plan designed to maximize the value of your house. We examine the importance of decluttering, repairing, cleaning and revitalizing. Each step builds on the other to turn your home into the kind of desirable sanctuary that buyers look for in any market condition.

Some people keep lots of plants in their house. They add colour and a sense of comfort but too many plants cause clutter like everything else. Besides taking up valuable space, plants collect more dust than does furniture because they don’t get cleaned as frequently and their growth is often kept unchecked. Limit the number of healthy plants to one or two per area. Give the rest to your friends to plant-sit.
Landscaping: service the water sprinkler system if required.
Laundry Room: line up the washing detergent, bleach, fabric softener and any other products neatly on the shelf.
Buyers want a spacious and organized laundry area, but don’t expect them to linger in this area for too long. If they do, it’s because they eye the appliances. The laundry room is not a deal breaker. You do, however, have to remove the slightest trace of sweating and old socks. This room should have good ventilation.
Mistake #8: Downplaying the importance of cleaning. Buyers are about to spend a lot of money to buy a house. They deserve a clean house. We think they’re right.
