If you’re thinking of selling your home, you’ll obviously want to consult with a home organization company or try organizing it yourself. The more presentable and attractive you make your home look, the better chance you have of selling it at a nifty price. So before you put the “For Sale” record, here are some home staging tips to get you started.
First, you must remember that less is more. Get rid of all that clutter. Clutter only makes rooms appear smaller than they really are. You want your potential buyers to see the best features in every room. This will not be possible if there is too much trash covering everything. If you don’t have enough closet space, rent a storage place to store all your junk.
Another home staging tip is to make sure the outside appearance of your home is presentable. Make sure your lawn is mowed and all leaves in your yard are raked. Sweep your porch and sidewalk. Scrub the entrance and hallways. Make sure there is no garbage in your garden. If you see any peeling paint on your porch or house, take the time to touch it up.
You should touch up the paint where necessary, outside or inside. And while you’re at it, super-paste any wallpaper that might be peeling off. If that doesn’t work, hang a beautiful picture above it. Make sure there are no holes or nails in the wall either.
You need to clean every inch of your house. Hire a friend to help you if you can’t do it all by yourself. Sweeping, mopping, scrubbing walls, dusting, vacuuming, cleaning all mirrors, etc. It may sound cliché, but make sure your bathroom (especially the toilet) is sparkling clean, too.
Home staging can be a lot of work, so you should really consider hiring someone to help you with cleaning, repairing, painting, etc. if you can afford to do so.
