Selling your home can become an overwhelming process, especially when trying to move all of your belongings. However, staging and setting up your home to sell can drastically increase your chances of selling. Staging your home is all about putting the best foot forward for potential buyers. By highlighting its most desirable features, you can draw more interest to your home and leave a lasting impression that is sure to help you sell it more quickly. According to Forbes, “staged homes will sell for 17% more on average than a non-staged home, and 95% of staged homes sell in 11 days or less”. This is 87% faster than non-staged homes! Here’s what you should keep in mind as you prepare for your next open house or viewing!


Help them visualize it as their own. Make it easier for buyers to imagine themselves making your house their home by removing personal memorabilia, knick-knacks, and photos. Instead replace them with simple décors, such as paintings, nature images, and plants.

Modern Design

Think sleek instead of comfy. Modern-day buyers are leaning toward modern, crisp, clean interiors over comfy, homey looks. When staging your home, keep a minimalist mindset, and incorporate neutral colors and metal accents. This doesn’t mean sticking to pure white and beige, but rather adding accents of color and knowing how to make it all work cohesively without being overbearing.

Deep Clean

Clutter and mess make people uncomfortable. Deep clean the small spaces. It’s obvious to say you should clean your home before viewing, but don’t forget to cover your bases by deep cleaning the small spots. Take time to scrub porous areas like grout that may hold on to stains and baseboards where small pet hairs and dust love to cling.

Curb Appeal

Spruce up your landscaping. The first impression your home gives to potential buyers is its exterior. Ensure you have a freshly mowed lawn, neat hedges and shrubbery, bright flowers, and a clean driveway. In addition, replacing light fixtures or removing dirt and grime can drastically improve the initial appeal of your property to buyers.


Set the mood. A home is so much more than just the way it looks, so you need to appeal to the other senses. Prior to having potential buyers over, set the mood by burning candles or sometimes even selecting an upbeat, happy soundtrack to play in the background.
All of these factors can help make your home more appealing and desirable to potential buyers. The right agent will have the resources to help you best stage your home.
