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.

Excess: pack overstocked and off-season items. If you’re selling your house in the summer then put away winter wear and sporting gear. Try to return excess to the store you bought it from; they might take it back.
Bathrooms: replace chipped or cracked mirrors. Large hardware stores usually carry a good selection of mirrors you can choose from.
Bathrooms: replace the toilet seats for hygiene reasons.
Linen Closet: group similar items together, towels on one shelf, sheets and pillowcases on another. Stuff fitted sheets inside a pillowcase for a clean look.
Pets: one option is to find someone to pet-sit them during a showing. Otherwise, keep them in a kennel and let the buyers know you have pets. Keep your fingers crossed that the buyers won’t mind.
