When listing your home it is critical to the sales process for your home to be staged effectively. Staging de-personalizes a home and helps showcase the different rooms to best capture the imagination of a prospective buyer. Remember you are not selling your personal style, you are selling your home.

Here are some things to remember:

  • Remove or minimize family photos
  • Remove any religious items or references
  • Paint rooms a neutral colour
  • Fix any obvious damage like holes in walls and tears in door screens
  • Replace any bulky furniture with pieces that best maximize a room's space
  • Make sure the kitchen is spotless and simply decorated
  • Make sure all visible linens are clean and fresh
  • Make sure all bathrooms are super clean with simple decorative accents and no overpowering scents
  • Minimize clutter
  • Fix up the master bedroom so it feels warm and inviting
  • The exterior of the home should be clean and tidy
  • You can stage your home yourself or let me recommend a home staging professional. Please feel free to discuss this with me.
