Having a well staged home is an important step in the buying/selling process as it influences how quickly your home is sold and also the price it fetches. A successful home staging process requires a good plan. Here are some of the steps that would give you excellent results.
Home Staging Basics:
Remove all family photos to create space and cut down on clutter. Potential buyers will want to imagine their own things in your home and by eliminating personal mementos you give them the ability to place themselves into those spaces.
Create a welcoming smell in your home by using light scents to remove bad odors which may discourage potential buyers. Place candles around in strategic places like by the garbage in the kitchen, in bathrooms and entry ways. Lighting them before a showing can create an enticing environment when entering the home.
Repair all broken items. Take the time to make the small repairs around your home that you have been lagging on. Look around your home and try to imagine it from the buyers perspective. Taking the time to repair holes in the wall, replace broken windows, put some WD-40 on squeaky doors and make any necessary general repairs.
