House

Staging your home is an important part of selling your home. This is how the buyer is going to get a first impression of the home. They are going to glance around the home and instantly they will make an opinion. You want to make sure you stage the home in a way that the opinion they develop is a good one. Clean, organized, bright, and furniture placement are all important parts of staging your home the right way.

Furniture Placement

Furniture should always have a little space between the walls: ideally an inch or two. This shows the buyer you are not using the furniture to hide anything on the walls or floors. It also just makes the room look nicer.

Take Good Photos

Do not be shy about taking a lot of photos of the home as you stage it. You can never have too many photos and you want to make sure you have plenty of good ones for listing. People hate shopping for houses only to come across listings with very few pictures.

Other Important Staging Steps

Take the time to put the toilet seats down and clear off all the countertops in the home. You should also open up the curtains and pull up the blinds. You want to show off the windows and let people see what the home looks like with some light shining inside.

As you are staging, do the best you can to make the rooms look spacious instead of cramped. You also need to make sure there is plenty of room to walk around in the off chance you have a lot of people come look at the house at the same time. This is what you want to happen – so make sure you have space to accommodate it.
