Top Tips for Staging Your Home

Why stage when selling your home?

A recent survey from the National Association of Realtors® revealed that 77 percent of buyers’ agents said staging a home makes it easier for potential buyers to visual it as their own.

There for, it can be argued that staging is not something to be overlooked! Here are the top tips.

Top 5 tips for staging your home.

  1. Dress up your yard.

First impressions count, and the first one your home gives comes from the exterior.

Mow the lawn, clean up shrubbery, rake any leaves, clean the walkway and driveway, plant in-season flowers, and pull up any unsightly weeds.

2. Reduce personal items.

Make it easier for buyers to imagine themselves making your house their home by removing personal photos and knick-knacks from shelves, walls, and counters.

Instead replace them with clean, simple décor, such as abstract paintings, nature images, vases, plants, and more.

3. Organize your storage areas.

Storage is a huge selling point.

Tidy up and clear out the accessible closets and cupboards in the home and make sure to point them out during an open house or showing.

4. Appeal to the senses.

Consider ways you can appeal to potential homebuyers’ other senses.

During a viewing or open house, bake some fresh cookies or burn delicious smelling candles and play light, relaxing music in the background.

5. Consider turning to an expert.

With their knowledge of current trends and great eye for design, professionally certified stagers can transform a home in a variety of ways and have a keen sense of what homebuyers want and expect in a home.

Investing in hiring a pro may pay off in dividends.


It might seem like an unnecessary chore, but staging doesn’t have to be difficult.

Taking a few extra hours preparing your home can save you days in getting it sold; not to mention more buck for that extra visual bang.

A little can go a long way.
