Declutter and Minimize Staging

Welcome to my personal tips for success when selling your home. I have faith you are doing well! If you’re thinking about selling your home, it’s essential to be prepared and plan ahead. Here are a few first steps to take as you move toward officially listing your house on the market!  

1. Declutter & Clean the Space 

2. Minimize Staging your Rooms

Should you stage your house or leave it empty? It depends. A recent study revealed that homes pre-staged sell 6% higher above the asking price than homes that do not stage. If you are still living in the home during the sales process, you will want to minimize each room’s layout. 

3. Curb Appeal Matters

It’s not just the inside of the house that sells a property. The curb appeal and exterior view is a buyer’s first impression, and the most important! Declutter and store outside items such as patio furniture, recreational toys, and lawn equipment. If you have a flower bed or garden, prune and trim as best as you can. You can even plant new flowers or shrubs to give the exterior more character! This will give your home the best chance to shine in photos as well!  

With your home now ready, your listing process will be that much smoother.
