Homes that have been staged sell 3-10% higher and 60% faster than other homes. Stage your home before you list your home for sale.
1. Make a great first impression
Make your home memorable. Home buying is an emotional purchase, with buyers deciding in the first 30 seconds of seeing the home if this is the one. The front entrance should be warm and welcoming. Does your home look great from the street (i.e., does it have great curb appeal)? Your home should be the one buyers want to see the rest of when they enter.
2. Clean, Clean, Clean
This is something most sellers overlook but the buyer will not. Buyers will look at the kitchen and bathrooms with a critical eye. So, if the grout around the sink or the shower needs to be recaulked, do it! Clean the carpets and rugs (this might eliminate any weird odors, too). If buyers see evidence that they will have to clean and fix things, they will offer less money for the home. A clean home looks like it has been taken care of and loved. If you need help, enlist a friend or hire a professional cleaning service. More
