Staging a lived-in home that is on the market for sale is no longer a nice option. It is a must in today’s market.Staging helps buyers see how the space can be used and how they fit into that space, and ultimately, to bring in the price you want.
To help get you started, below are three simple tips.
Box away anything personal like trophies, family pictures, clown collections, or science projects. These things may distract potential buyers from seeing themselves in the space.
Anything you do not absolutely have to use daily, box it away and put it in storage or give it away. You will need to box things up when you move anyway, so this will give you a good head start. Items you may not use on a daily basis may include kids toys, animal toys, racks with magazines in the bathroom, and electric cooking appliances. Place those that you will need before you move neatly inside of cabinets or closets. Also, get things currently on the floors, whether in open spaces or in closets boxed away. If you need your shoes or gym bags, keep them but place them neatly on shelves inside the closet.
3. Add Light
For those rooms that do not have an overhead light and good natural light, add floor lamps and put up a mirror to reflect the light. That will help make the room feel brighter and more inviting.
