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.

The other reason to de-personalize has to do with safety. Buyers rummaging through your house are strangers and it would be better if they don’t know who lives there, or have access to any other personal data.
Kitchen: add missing aerators to your faucets. You don’t want the buyer to get accidently soaked when they test them.
When you have a smell that refuses to go away, consider renting an ozone machine. It’s best to hire a professional as you need to be out of the house for a few days. In the worst case scenario you will need to repaint your walls and replace the underlay and the carpet.
Revitalizing: replace the 1L moisturizing cream dispensers, 500-sheets tissue paper boxes, 1.5L mouthwash bottles, etc. with smaller editions. Don’t let buyers form a negative opinion about who lives in the house.
Mistake #10: Not paying attention to your house’s curb appeal. You’ve been living inside the box. Go outside and observe your house critically. When the exterior paint is peeling or the yard is left unkempt your buyers will develop a bad after-taste. Once you’ve made a bad impression, it’s hard to recover.
