IT'S TIME TO STAGE YOUR HOME!

GETTING READY TO LIST YOUR HOME? HAS YOUR REALTOR DISCUSSED STAGING? IF HE OR SHE IS AN ACCREDITED STAGER, THAT REALTOR IS FULL OF SOME GREAT, PROVED ADVICE TO GET YOUR HOME SOLD QUICKLY PROVIDING OF COURSE THAT THE PRICE IS RIGHT!

BEGIN WITH DE-CLUTTERING. HARD TO SEE A HOME FROM THE OUTSIDE OR INSIDE THAT IS OVERGROWN WITH TREES OR SHRUBS OR FULL OF YOUR PERSONAL ITEMS. SPACE AND LIGHT ATTRACT BUYERS. CHOOSE A NICE NEUTRAL PAINT AND ASK YOUR STAGER FOR SUGGESTIONS. WAITING FOR THE NEW BUYER TO PAINT? MOST NEW BUYERS WILL WAIT TWO YEARS BEFORE THEY BEGIN TO MAKE CHANGES. THEY WILL PASS BY YOUR HOME AND SELECT ONE MORE UP TO DATE SO, PAINT GOES A LONG WAY TO UPDATE A HOME. MAKE YOUR WINDOWS SPARKLE. REPLACE DATED LIGHT FIXTURES AND IF POSSIBLE, OLD CARPETING AND REFINISH HARDWOOD FLOORS.

NOTHING LOOKS MORE INVITING THAN A NICELY MADE BED. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU INVESTED IN A COMFORTER AND SOME FLUFFY PILLOWS? WHITE IS ALWAYS IN AND NETRAL SHEETS AND TOWELS DRAW THE BUYER TO THOSE AREAS. HAVE YOUR HOME PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED BEFORE IT GOES ON THE MARKET INCLUDING YOUR CARPETING. A FRESHLY SMELLING HOME WILL INVITE A BUYER TO STAY AND BROWSE.

AT YOUR SHOWINGS, KEEP YOUR LIGHTS ON. REMOVE ALL PET BOWLS. KEEP CLOSETS ORGANIZED AND COUNTERS CLEAR. MOW YOUR LAWN OR REMOVE SNOW IF SHOWING IN WINTER. IF AN EVENING SHOWING, LEAVE OUTSIDE LIGHTS ON. THE MORE WELCOMING, THE BETTER. FRESH FLOWERS LIKE TULIPS OR CARNATIONS ON THE TABLE LET THE BUYER KNOW YOU MADE AN EFFORT TO PREPARE THE HOME FOR THE SHOWING.

PRICE AND LOCATION ARE CRUCIAL TO A SALE BUT A CLEAN, DE-CLUTTERING, WELL LIT HOME WITH SOME NICE UPDATES ARE EQUALLY IMPORTANT.
