Staging Do’s and Don'ts

Staging Do’s:

Do Maximize Curb Appeal 

First impressions are everything. Your frontyard and entryway should be in tip top shape, creating a warm and inviting feeling that captivates potential buyers before they step foot into your home. Maximize curb appeal by cleaning up your lawn, making sure the grass is freshly cut, repainting your front door or even adding subtle decor to the entryway. 

Do De-Personalize Your Home 

Remove all personal items such as family photos, custom decor, or unique artwork. De-personalizing a home can help buyers envision the space as their own. While it’s hard to predict people’s taste, sticking to a less personalized, neutral aesthetic can make all the difference in allowing buyers to create their own vision. 

Do Focus on the Main Rooms

We know that staging every corner of your home can be overwhelming. Focus your attention on the main areas such as the living room, kitchen, and master bedroom. These are the most impactful spaces in a home that can really win over potential buyers.

Staging Don’ts:

Don’t Store Excess Clutter

A cluttered home can make a potential buyer think there is not enough space in the home to live comfortably. Avoid piling clutter in the garage or closets, and consider off-site storage space. The last thing you want is for your house to seem too small or not spacious enough.

Don’t Over-stage

Over-staging a home defeats the purpose of staging itself. Buyers love to envision how they can work with the layout of a home – make this easy for them by leaving as much open space as possible. The goal is to make the spaces look easily transformable, and over-staging does the complete opposite.

Don’t Ignore the Little Things

Some examples of the little things include lingering odors, pet-related problems, or small fixes such as updating fixtures or fixing a leaking faucet. Buyers notice the little things, and it’s the little things that can really put them off of a home. There’s no need for a full renovation, but tackling the little things will take you very far.
