A Growing Trend - Home Staging

by Samia S. Morgan

It's not much of a secret anymore, but home staging is a growing trend that can expedite the sale of your home and attract potential buyers.

To prepare, or "stage" your home it is a good idea to start with your front yard. This is where first impressions are formed. Ideally you want your yard to be tidy and well groomed.

Some things you can do to spruce up your yard could be:

  • A thorough wash of the siding or fresh stain
  • Lawns, shrubs and tress should be trimmed
  • Flower beds and pots should be weed free

Once you have created an inviting and clean front yard, potential buyers will want to enter the home for a closer look. There are a few basic home staging techniques that you can follow for the interior of your home that may help seal the deal.

  • All rooms and hallways should be clutter free
  • Try to rid your home of any strong odors that may turn off potential buyers (i.e. pet odors, cigarette smells, or strong candle scents)
  • Keep you "personal" knick knacks, collections and family photos to a bare minimum
  • You may have some smaller rooms in your home. To have these rooms appear bigger, try removing some of the unnecessary or extra furniture

First impressions can make or break the sale of your home, so don't miss out. A little clean up can go a long way.
