Norfolk, VA – In today’s real estate market, homes must be move-in ready to garner the attention of buyers. If you’re serious about getting your home sold for the most amount of money in the least amount of time, you must work with your Realtor to stage your home.
Follow these simple tips for home staging that works.
Create a Staging Plan – Before you list your home, walk through each room and look at it from a potential buyer’s perspective. How does it show? Is the space functional? Does the furniture placement enhance the space or work against it?
Eliminate the Excess – Are there items that you haven’t used in years? Focus on what needs to be removed, and then make arrangements to have the items stored or donated to charity.
Pack Personal items – Depersonalizing and de-cluttering is one of the most important tactics in staging your home. Pack all unused items including the kitchen and bathrooms and store off-property.
Clean – Hire a professional company to deep-clean every room. They will address baseboards, closets, and other hard to reach places. Don’t forget basements, garages, and outside storage areas.
After you’ve successfully staged your home, ask your real estate agent to schedule a time you can view your competition to see how your home stacks-up. “I always invite my sellers to view similar properties on the market. It’s important to tour the competition to gauge how your home compares in property condition and move-in readiness,” says Shannon Allen, Norfolk VA Realtor.
