Are you ready to sell your home? If so, there’s a good chance you don’t want to wait months to find a buyer.

Unfortunately, this is a reality for many sellers.

When you look around your home, everything may seem perfect. However, if you leave the space styled based on your tastes and with personal effects everywhere, it will be hard for potential buyers to see themselves living there.

This is where smart home staging comes in.

Home staging tips that work

As mentioned above, when someone tours your home, they want to visualize their family and life in the space. Some tips to help ensure this is possible can be found here.

  • Eliminate clutter. Clothes, nick-knacks, pet toys, kid’s toys – the list goes on and on. If you have “stuff” everywhere, clean it up and put it away. Clutter can reduce your home’s appeal.
  • Remove personal items. You love your family and want to show it off in your home – this is natural. However, you need to get rid of personal items when trying to sell. The home should feel like a blank slate to potential buyers.
  • Clean up. A dirty home is going to cause buyers to pass quickly. Clean up everywhere before you show your home to interested buyers.
  • Freshen the space. Odors can be a huge turn-off for potential buyers. Try removing bad smells and adding some live plants to make your home smell and feel fresher.
