The Secrets Of Staging Your
Home To Sell
By Sam Erickson
There’s only one chance to make a
first impression. You’ve got to put
your best foot forward. These are
both clichés, but they absolutely
apply when you are trying to sell your
home, particularly in a challenging
market. There are a few secrets to
staging a home that will allow you to
make a great first impression on
potential buyers.
One thing you can do is add extra
light to your home, particularly if you
live in a traditionally dreary part of
the country. Consider adding bulbs
with extra wattage to the fixtures or
more lamps to your home. Clean
windows inside and out and consider
changing out window fixtures for
lighter, more transparent ones.
Of course, if some of the lights don’t
work, you’ll want to get them fixed,
and that should really be the first step
in prepping your home for salefixing anything that’s broken.
Whether it is a leaky faucet or a door
that doesn’t close all the way, making
a cosmetic change to the house will
send the subtle signal that it has been
well cared for in the time that you
were there.
your existence as clean as possible.
Many people decide to hire a cleaning
company. You can do this for the initial
clean or have a service come in every
week to tidy things up for you, depending on what your budget will allow.
Remove the clutter. If there’s one thing a
homebuyer wants, it is space to put their
things. If the house is full of your stuff, it
can be more difficult for buyers to
envision themselves in the home. If you
can move large pieces of furniture,
perhaps ones you will be discarding
anyway, you’ll create more space for
buyers. In particular, you will want to
remove items that might alienate large
groups of buyers, including items of a
political or religious nature. Buyers often
connect emotionally with a home, and
items like these might stop that
emotional connection from happening.
While you are removing the clutter,
you’ll also want to get the right props.
Mirrors can make rooms seem larger
and increase the amount of available
light. Plants can make a home seem
warm and inviting. Professional stagers
often use large bowls of fruit, colorfully
arranged cookbooks in the kitchen and
eye-catching wall sconces to add a
touch of elegance and panache, making
