Sharing three ways you can use staging to unlock your home’s potential.
How do you stage your home to boost its final sales price? Ultimately, know that first impressions matter when it comes to selling your home. When going through the selling process, you need to work hard to get all the money you can. To shift buyers’ perceptions in your favor and get the most for your sale, you need to stage your home correctly. Here are three important tips for staging your home:
1. Highlight the key features. Showcase the standout parts of your home, especially outdoor spaces like patios. Consider adding attractive elements such as a nice rug, good-looking planters, and party lights to create a welcoming ambiance for potential buyers.

2. Declutter and depersonalize. Remove personal items like family photos since they can be distracting and make it harder for buyers to envision themselves in the space. Clear countertops and surfaces create a clean and spacious feel.
3. Eliminate unpleasant odors. Address any bad smells, especially if you have pets. Seek the opinion of a trusted friend or professional to determine if your home has any lingering pet smells or cigarette odors, for example. Also, avoid overwhelming the space with strong fragrances, as this may be off-putting for buyers too.
By following these steps, you’ll stand out among other homeowners and make a great impression on potential buyers. If you need help getting your home ready for sale, our team can provide a free consultation with a skilled stager. Call or email us anytime and we’d be happy to assist you.
