Sell Your Home Faster! 4 Key Staging Tips

Put yourself in the buyer's shoes – Remember all of the things that you loved about the home and the neighborhood when you purchased the property. If you live near the beach, highlight this in the decor of your home so that it reflects everything that this lifestyle offers to buyers. Emphasize your finished basement, eat-in kitchen and family room if you would like your home to appeal to families. Make it easy for buyers to envision themselves living happily in the home.

Use your nose – Identify any sources of odor in your home and figure out a remedy. Ask a friend to come over to help you, as a someone who doesn't live in your home may be able to pick up on smells that you don't notice. Be sure to keep any pet areas spotless and odor-free.

Hire a cleaning company – An in depth cleaning of your home will allow it to show at its best. It will also free up some of your time for other tasks and help to alleviate stress.

Declutter – Take a tour of your home with an aim to create more space. Rooms will appear larger and "less is more" appeals to buyers. Arrange furniture to make everything look as open as possible and organize furniture to create a clean line of focus, especially in the living room. Creating open, walkable spaces helps buyers visualize their own furniture in each room. Put bulky, damaged, or mismatched furniture into storage. Aim for a neutral colors which will serve as a clean slate for a wide array of buyer decorating ideas.

Light it up – Walking into a dark home does not make a good first impression. Take down heavy window hangings to allow more natural light to come in and invest in additional lighting fixtures if needed. This can help make the home feel more welcoming and appear larger.
