DIY Staging Tips!

Staging your home – even in a seller’s market – is 𝘢𝘭𝘸𝘢𝘺𝘴 recommended! Although it is a HOT market, staging your house will make it stand out from the others in your price range, and you won’t waste a single opportunity to create a great impression. If you want to sell your home quickly and for the best possible price, staging is one of the easiest ways to make it happen.

  • Just to drop a few stats, according to the 2021 Profile of Home Staging from the National Association of Realtors:

  • 23% of sellers’ agents reported an increase of 1-5% of the dollar value offered by buyers, in comparison to unstaged homes (which means more money in your pocket)

  • 82% of buyers’ agents said staging a home made it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as a future home

  • According to the Real Estate Staging Association, staged homes sell 73% faster, on average, than their non-staged counterparts

Here’s what else — staging doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated! I’ve listed below a few non-negotiable staging homework items I give to all of my sellers: ✓ Declutter and depersonalize everything! Small objects don’t photo well so remove any knick-knacks and any personal items. When it comes to getting your home ready for the market, less is ALWAYS more ✓ Deep clean the entire home top-to-bottom like you’ve never cleaned before ✓ Focus on Curb appeal – fresh mulch, power washing, new wreaths, and front door mat with a pop of color ✓ Add fluffy white towels to the bathrooms, remove bathmats, and add white comforters to all of the beds – this will make the rooms feel larger, and the bathrooms look inviting (and clean) ✓ Remove area rugs and curtains ✓ Eliminate pet presence (and smells) and get rid of air fresheners! The best scent a home can have is CLEAN

✓ If your home is vacant, consider virtually staging your dining room, family/living room, and primary bedroom!
