Organizing Your Home for Staging
The real estate website Trulia lays out some of the basics of home staging. They cite statistics that show that 49 percent of buyers’ agents believe staging affects their clients’ view of a home, while 77 percent of buyers’ agents say staging makes it easier for potential buyers to visualize the property as theirs.
Getting a buyer to picture owning the property takes work. First, you have to get rid of clutter. And you have to be smart about how you do it. You can’t just stuff everything in closets because buyers looking through the house will often look into those closets. You are not displaying your home as it normally looks. You likely are going to remove furniture and you will also want the living space to be bright. Other recommended tips for home staging include:
- Raising your blinds and opening your curtains to bring more sunlight in.
- Adding overhead lights and mirrors.
- Setting up your most important rooms first.
You may be asking; how do I know which rooms are the most important to focus on for my home staging?
According to the Profile of Home Staging from The National Association of Realtors, their findings showed buyers felt that staging the living room was the most important. This was followed closely by the master bedroom and kitchen. HGTV has a list of “don’ts” to keep in mind when staging a home.
When Staging Your Home, DON’T:
- Point out things like a leaky foundation.
- Leave any home projects like do-it-yourself jobs unfinished.
- Leave papers like bills out in the open.
- Forget yard work. If the interior of your home is pristine, the exterior should be too.
