Staging Your Home For Sale

I try to tell people when I first walk
in the door “Guess what? You’re not going to like me any more than you do right
now because I am going to take your home and turn it into a house for sale and
that might not feel comfortable.” This is your home right now we’re going to
transform it and one of the first things we do is when the buyer walks through
the door they’re going to make a decision really quickly as to whether
they feel that this is going to be a great home for them or not. So what we want to do is make this entryway as inviting as possible. okay now we’re walking into your main living area. And what we want to make sure happens here
is that first of all people feel welcome and the furniture is placed in such a
manner that it’s inviting to people. And that’s why we got rid of the sectional
because the sectional was sitting right here and kind of blocking that entryway. Would you guys mind helping me move this a little bit? No not at all, it makes a
lot of sense. Maybe we can try a few more configurations. Okay great! How do you feel walking into this? This looks a lot more wide open and inviting when you walk in. The other thing I notice in this room is
that you’ve got this entertainment center So what we’re going to try and do
here is make sure that it’s less of a distraction than it is right now because
we’ve got a lot of books, a lot of pictures. What we want people to see when
they first walk in the room is the feature that’s staying and that’s not
the entertainment center but the fireplace. And you’ve got a gorgeous
fireplace and so we want to downplay that to up play this When we live in the home, it’s wonderful
to have our children’s artwork shown off. But when we’re trying to sell a feature, these shelves, we want to take all these distractions away. Now let’s move into the dining room. What
we’re going to do is we’re going to take these arts and crafts and we’re going to
put them someplace else that’s not as obvious and not as distracting. Welcome to your new master bedroom. My
gosh, whose bedroom is this? I don’t know what to say,
honey you’ve got the call mature bedroom that you’ve always been wanting. That’s
what I’ve been wanting, it’s great, it looks terrific. So what we did in your master
bedroom is a couple of things: one is we depersonalized, two is we declutter, and
the final thing is we decorated. I’ve always looked at staging as a return on
investment. Yes it is investment in the front and the accessories, furniture, and
the stagers work but on the back side, I think there’s a huge return in less time
on the market and higher price when you do sell. I really didn’t know how much we
could do with our existing stuff and you know how we could make it blossom and if
just I think it’s fabulous I’m thrilled

Thanks for the great tips – if every seller used these tips buyers would be pretty confused. (I'm sure we don't have to worry about that anytime soon…)

The real estate agent told my sister that it's also good to have something baking in the oven–like an apple pie and this will help sell your house also.

One of the least expensive and most effective home staging technique is to cut down on the clutter. Try to sort through your belongings and open up as much space as possible. Also do you want your space to look bigger? Add a few mirrors!

Andrea is right about changing around the home and owners sometimes not happy about it. It can be challenging dealing with those emotions. Investing in the time and effort to get the home looking ready for sale is very important.

Great ideas. Staging does work wonders. I have listed homes that have been sitting on the market for a long time. After helping homeowners with staging, we usually sell within a month.

Helpful tips. Staging and De-cluttering is so important to getting your house sold. With this de-petting matters a lot. Potential home buyers prefer a pet free home and one of the biggest reasons people will not buy a house is pet odor. Here is a good read: http://bit.ly/1gG8G6n

Well done. If only more sellers were open to the idea of removing their personal affects and show casing the features of the home. Spot on. It works!

Could you tell me why you took the mirror out of the dining area? To tell the power of decluttering and depersonalizing, we sold a home in the peak of the recession (in winter, with four foot of snow outside) to the first showing AND in the first week! We spent two solid weeks taking the clutter and personal things out. This was after our realtor came the first time. When he came back, he told us it was the first time homeowners did as he asked without having a fit about it. lol We also got asking price.

Man, the "before" on their bedroom really sucked. Hopefully the "after" inspires them.
