Avoiding Staging Mistakes

Avoiding Staging Mistakes

It is easy to make mistakes, but below are some of the top mistakes sellers make when they are preparing their house for the market:

  • You don't go it alone, don't be afraid to get advice from others on what looks neat and organized. Get your realtor’s advice; or if selling on your own, have a trusted third party walk the home with you and point out areas that look cluttered or cramped.
  • Keep in mind that you do not have to make extensive renovations or replace all the furniture to be successful. Keep things simple and your investments small. Updates to paint, replacing light fixtures or changing out pillows or bedcovers can all go a long way to giving your home an updated look without major expense.
  • Leave out personal items and knick-knacks. Be sure to remove family photos, school projects and other personal items that might make it hard for a new family to envision themselves living in the space. 
  • If you need some inspiration, visit a few model homes for sale for ideas on attractive staging and open spaces. Open up heavy curtains with tie backs and make sure that your furniture isn’t in the way of creating, bright open spaces. If you need to take some things out, try temporary storage.
  • Avoid painting with dark or intense colors. Keep your wall and flooring colors to neutral, adaptable tones. Even if bright or varied color palettes are trendy, they are too much for most prospective buyers..
  • Avoid overstaging with accessories. Over the top accessories, including flowers, scents, and home décor items not only make it look like you are trying too hard, they can detract from the real form and functionality of your house.

Simplicity is the key to correctly staging your home for sale. Clean, uncluttered and neutral surroundings show off the possibilities of your home to your buyers and make your house the number one choice!
