Staging your home makes your home easier for potential buyers to connect to. Buyers need to be able to picture themselves living in your home in order for them to want to make it their own. Not only that, making your home more attractive to buyers results in your home selling faster and for more money. By following these home staging tips, you can help your home sell.


Cleaning your home is one of the most important things to accomplish before opening your home to buyers. A clean home shows buyers that you have taken excellent care of the space they may soon call their home. Everything should be cleaned- from the floor to the ceiling, and everything in between. Your whole home should sparkle.


While your home should be squeaky clean, fashionable, and beautiful, it should also look inviting and comfortable. Buyers need to be able to envision themselves living in the space and ensure that their lifestyle can fit in. For example, your home does not need to look like an depersonalized hotel. Rather, when staging your home you need to be sure to include a comfortable space for a whole family to hang out.


Buyers need to be able to envision themselves in your space. To accomplish this, store all of your family photos, refrigerator art, and family keepsakes elsewhere during showings. Depersonalizing your home also means hiding your clothes and emptying your bathrooms. Ultimately, anything that can clue in to your current lifestyle should be stored away to ensure buyers can picture themselves moving in.


The outside of your home is equally as important as everything inside. When properly staging your home, curb appeal should be a top priority. If your home does not have a good first impression on buyers, they may not even want to look at the inside of your home. Your exterior checklist should include: pulling weeds, ensuring all plants look regularly cared for, new door mats, clean windows, and you may want to consider power washing the outside of your home. Additionally, the backyard should be shown the same amount of love as the front. Create an outdoor living space that will appeal to your buyers.
