Staging your house so it gets a buyer fast is actually very easy. There are simple tips that most people don't realize are important, but if you follow them, you'll have offers coming in faster. Here are some staging tips that you might find useful.
Clear Everything Out
The first thing you have to do is clear everything from the house. Clear off all the furniture, pack up the kids’ toys, and clean up the rooms. Use a vacuum cleaner to make sure there’s no dust, and if there’s any grease lurking on the surfaces, use a degreaser.
Paint the Walls
Painting the walls of your house is one of the best ways to stage it for sale. It makes the house look neat and tidy, and is an instant way to hide the flaws. But you’ll want to use a neutral color which will work with whatever your potential buyers might want.
Get Rid of Old Carpets
If you have used carpets on the floors, replace them with a hardwood floor. That will lead to buyers believing that you really take care of your home. Replacing old carpets with new ones is also fine, but only when the floors are in a good condition.
Get Rid of Bad Smells
There are lots of bad smells that you may have in your house, but the most common are smoke, cigarettes, old food, pet smells, mold, body odor, and just a general lived-in smell. Clean up, open windows, and spray air freshener in the rooms.
Put a "For Sale" Sign in The Yard
After you’ve staged your home, it’s a good idea to advertise it with a "For Sale" sign in the yard. This helps generate a buzz and using a professionally-designed sign is obviously more effective than using a homemade one.
