5 Step for Staging your Home to Sell

Origin…..Steve and Chris CBC website May 9, 2015staging

1. Remove All Personality

Once you’ve made the decision to sell your home, it’s time to mentally detach yourself from it. You should operate under the mindset that the home is no longer yours. Therefore, remove all traces of yourself (e.g. family photos, personal collections) from the space and create a neutral palette that will be more universally appealing.

2. Declutter

A home for sale should be clean and clutter-free. Remove all visual traffic so that the home has a nice, light feeling to it. If prospective buyers see that everything in your home has its place, they will assume their things will fit as well and hopefully be more inclined to buy it!

3. Don’t Overdo it with Fragrance

Air fresheners are nice, but don’t go overboard! The last thing you want is for someone to have a negative reaction to your scent of choice and run out of the house gasping for air.

4. Sell it with Flowers

Fresh flowers instantly brighten any space. A few tasteful blooms in unexpected places, such as the powder room or on a console table, are always a nice touch.

5. Find Sitters for Your Pet

Many people have allergies to and/or a fear of animals. Do yourself — and your beloved pets — a favour and temporarily relocate them to a new home with a trusted friend or family member. If your home is priced properly and staged well, chances are it won’t be on the market for long, and you’ll be reunited with your furry friends in no time!
