Staging you can do yourself

With many homes, there are small things that you can do yourself to help the seller stage. Here are some of the best staging tips that provide the biggest return on investment, according to real estate agents:

Remove personal items

Ask your seller to remove all of their family’s photos, wall hangings and personal items. You want potential buyers to see themselves in the home, and when there are pictures of the sellers, they sometimes feel like they’re invading someone else’s space. This makes it hard to want to buy a house.


Many real estate agents echoed the same statement: Get a storage unit and start packing up boxes. This will not only will this make moving easier for your client, but it will also free up space for a home to shine.

This might mean asking the seller to remove certain items and put them into storage or simply moving things from top shelves to keep the open and clean look throughout the home. Clearing the floors of a home can make a huge difference. You will add space and a feeling of more space by cutting down what is in closets. Clear off top shelves, too. Leave some space open.

Clean the home

After de-cluttering the home, many agents pay for a deep clean, or help the sellers clean the house themselves. A bar of soap and elbow grease are free, and a clean well-maintained home is the best.

Front entryway

There’s a saying about first impressions, and it has never been more true when it comes to home www. A front entryway and porch are a potential buyer’s first impression of the home, and the most important part of www.

We recommend sweeping up and ensuring there are no overhanging plants as well as making sure the house number is visible from the street.

Remove any ‘no soliciting’ signs as the subconscious will read the word ‘no,’ and highly influence how welcome they feel.
