5 Things NOT to do When Staging

Staging a home for sale is the most misunderstood process in home selling.

Creating the right atmosphere in the home, one which invites potential buyers
to linger is much more than this. When creating the right scene, it’s just as
important to know what NOT to when staging the home.

1. Neglecting the Deep Clean
A clean and fresh home is the very first step. If the home smells like last night’s dinner and there is cat hair
in the corners, regardless of what else you do, it’s not going to sell.

2. Leaving the Clutter –
Of course you’re still living in the home, but it shouldn’t necessarily look like it.

3. Keeping Personal Photos In View
Again, the goals is to create a blank canvass on which the buyers can imagine their own belongings.

4. Bright Colors –
You might enjoy the purple wall and orange carpet, but your buyers will find them distracting.

Neutral accents are always better.

5. Over Accessorizing
Too much of a good thing is a bad thing. Too many candles, throw pillows or furniture
will just distract attention.

If you need to sell your home for top dollar in the shortest amount of time, you should consider investing
in a professional  home stager who can help make your home shine.
