Staging Tips

1. Focus On The Curb Appeal
The first thing that potential buyers will see is the outside of your house. The lawn, landscaping, front porch, front door, and driveway are the first impression your home is going to make, so spruce up the lawn, plant some flowers, paint the front door, reseal the driveway, whatever it takes to make a good first impression.

2. Time For Some Deep Cleaning
This is crucial in home staging and is more than just picking up and vacuuming. Clean the spaces in the home that haven’t been cleaned for a very long time (or ever), including baseboards, vent covers, ceiling fans, and the fireplace.

3. Brush On A Fresh Coat Of Paint
A fresh coat of paint in main rooms or throughout the house can bring a home back to life.
