The top 10 reasons to stage your home

Use staging to highlight the most lived-in rooms in the house because this is where buyers will spend most of their time.

Cluttered versus uncluttered

Make the best first impressions!

When you declutter and impersonalize your home, buyers can visualize themselves living there. Have you put yourself in their shoes – would you want to buy a used car that is covered in crumbs, dog hair, and sticky floors from an old spilled soda? Would you buy a home in a similar condition? Of course not.

The solution is staging, cleaning up and presenting the property at its very best. Another benefit of staging is your marketing photos will look great. 90% of buyers look for homes online, and I want yours to stand out! Photos that showcase your property in the best possible way keep buyers coming through your door.

Decluttering tips:

Pet Odor

You might love your furry friends, but are their pet odors turning off potential buyers when you are trying to sell your home?

If you spend a lot of time with your cats or dogs, you might not notice the smell in your home. So, you may not realize that your home smells like your pets.

When selling your property, first impressions are crucial. If a potential buyer detects pet odors upon entering, it can greatly reduce their interest in your property.

Ask your real estate agent for an honest opinion. If they say you have a problem, here are some ways you can freshen up your house without getting rid of Fluffy and Fido.

  • Air everything out. Open up all the windows to let the fresh air come in from outside and sweep away all the stiffness and smells.

  • Wash the floors and the walls with vinegar, floor cleaner or an odor-neutralizing cleaning product. You can find pet-specific cleaning products at pet supply stores.

  • Pet smells can steep into fabrics, so steam clean or dry-clean your fabric drapes and upholstery.

  • Washing blankets and bedding with a mix of laundry detergent and 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar can help to remove the smells.

  • Before showing off your home, have your carpets professionally cleaned so that all the deep-down dog hair and cat dander will be removed.

  • When potential buyers come over, he can place potpourri or scented candles around the room in strategic locations. However, be careful that you don’t go overboard as some people are sensitive to strong perfumes.

  • Keep your pet contained to one section of the house to make cleaning easier and keep the rest of the house smelling fresh. If at all possible, have your pets stay with a friend when the home is being shown.

With these tips, you should be able to make a fresh smelling first impression on anyone who comes to view your home. For more information about selling your property, contact your trusted real estate professional.
