Home Staging 101

De-personalize

Potential buyers need to be able visualize themselves in your house. Removing photos from your wedding, your last vacation or your kid's soccer team will also keep buyers from spending too much time trying to figure out if they know who you are.

De-clutter

Remove knick knacks, furniture, books, artwork, electronics and anything else that isn't strictly staging or absolutely necessary. You have to pack it all anyway.  

clean

Make it sparkle! Clean windows, scrub bathrooms, and dust your ceiling fans.
