Resale: Tips for Preparing and Staging Your Home for Sale
Staging your home for sale simply means making it look as inviting as possible to potential buyers. A little bit of preparation will help to sell your home faster and bring top dollar.
1. The first thing to do is let go of your emotional attachment to the house. It won't be easy, but it will free you to do what's needed to make it attractive to buyers.
2. De-personalize your home. When you remove personal items such as family photographs and keepsakes, buyers can more easily imagine themselves living there.
3. Clean and de-clutter. Remove items that inevitably accumulate on shelves and countertops. Straighten up the contents of cabinets and cupboards. Make everything sparkle! Wash the windows and polish metal surfaces. Dust the furniture and vacuum the floors. Pay special attention to making bathrooms and kitchens look immaculately clean.
4. Remove furniture, but leave enough so that the room's purpose is still apparent. Reducing the amount of furniture in rooms will make them look bigger. Rent a storage unit if you need temporary space to store excess furniture, clothing and family artifacts.
5. Make sure your home has curb appeal. Stand outside, look at your home and ask yourself if you'd like to go inside. Make sure the lawn and shrubbery is neatly trimmed. Paint the front door and window trim if necessary. Purchase yellow flowers (they stimulate a buying emotion) and place them in pots that are visible to buyers coming to the front door.
