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.

Do your rooms have identity crises? In making your house a home, you may have overloaded a room to suit a purpose it wasn’t intended for; for example, your family room also serves as a music room; the living room is doubling up as an exercise room; perhaps your dining room has been transformed into an office. Instead of shuffling furniture from one area of the house to another, you should consider putting these items away until your house is sold. When this isn’t realistic, perhaps your basement can be partitioned to host some of the secondary functions such as sewing, exercising, playing music, etc.
Service your furnace if it has been more than two years. Replace the furnace filter.
Kitchen: clean small appliances and make room for them in your cabinets under the counter. This is where they’ll go during a house showing.
Dining Room: add real or silk flowers as your centerpiece on the table.
Mistake #5: Focusing too much on expensive remodeling as opposed to making small improvements to help sell your house. You can save thousands by focusing on the little things.
