When listing your home it is critical to the sales process for your home to be staged effectively. Staging de-personalizes a home and helps showcase the different rooms to best capture the imagination of a prospective buyer. Remember you are not selling your personal style, you are selling your home.

Here are some things to remember:

    • Remove or minimize family photos
    • Remove any religious items or references
    • Paint rooms a neutral colour
    • Fix any obvious damage like holes in walls and tears in door screens
    • Replace any bulky furniture with pieces that best maximize a room's space
    • Make sure the kitchen is spotless and simply decorated
    • Make sure all visible linens are clean and fresh
    • Make sure all bathrooms are super clean with simple decorative accents and no overpowering scents
    • Minimize clutter
    • Fix up the master bedroom so it feels warm and inviting
    • The exterior of the home should be clean and tidy

You can stage your home yourself or let me recommend a home staging professional. Please feel free to discuss this with me.
