As a homeowner, you need a simple step-by-step process for staging your house
A five-step sequence that can be done for each room of your house
Step 1: De-Cluttering
This is the single most important action you can take in preparing the home for sale. Your goal is to remove as much visible clutter as possible and turn disorder into order.
Step 2: De-personalize
It’s important to remove everything that provides any information about anyone who lives in the house. These items only act as distractions for the house hunter.
Step 3: Repairs
A home that is in a good state of repair indicates to potential buyers that the house has been well maintained.
Step 4: Clean
The rule here is clean, clean and then clean some more! This is without a doubt most critical to your success. Dirt puts buyers off faster than anything!
Step 5: Decorating
Decorating can simply be accomplished by repositioning the existing furniture, perhaps removing or replacing certain pieces, adding accent pillows, replacing or adding art and maybe incorporating other effective accessories.
Follow these five steps for every room in your house to prepare your house for sale.
