Think of staging your home as creating an "image" for your property similar to what a manager would do for a well-known entertainer. Just like creating a style draws the spotlight to a public figure, staging makes your house a more desirable listing on the market.

Start with the outside of your house, or your curb appeal. Look at the outside of your home from a quick glance from the street. What jumps out at you? What dollar-earning characteristics seem hidden?Understanding this assists us in deciding what steps we can take to entice buyers from the street and into your home. If your house isn't pretty on the outside with retouched paint and colorful garden plants we'll need to address those as well. Follow the Curb Appeal Checklist and boost your home's final selling price.
Does your house seem to say, "This is Your Next House" to a buyer? Examining your home from a buyer's perspective, I'll advise you of changes that enhance Open House appeal.
I'll suggest that you take away pieces that give the look of clutter. Counter tops should be neatly arranged. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and kids' drawings should get stored away too. You need to "generalize" the house so buyers can imagine it as their new home.
Every room gets a once-over. I'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be rearranged, rooms that need new paint, carpet needing to get changed, fixtures that need polishing, and any other improvement that can easily be made to positively impact the sale.
Buyers like a home that draws them in with charm. Personal items that could be uninviting should be put away in order for your property to garner mass appeal during any visit.
