If you are going to be selling your home in the near future, you should do everything you can to get it ready for people to be walking through it. Staging your home is a good way to showcase your home’s best features and help you to get the best sales price.   You don't need to spend too much money to get it ready. In fact, you can do a lot of the staging yourself. Consider these basic staging tips when getting your home ready to sell.  


Clean Your Entire House   It is expected for you to clean up your home but you need to make it look like a desirable place for potential buyers to want to live. This means that everything in your home needs to be deep cleaned. That includes steam cleaning the carpets, washing and waxing the floors, and getting grout and grudge out of the tiles.   If you don't have the time to give your home the deep cleaning that it needs, you might consider hiring a professional cleaning service to ensure a spotless home.  

Give Your Home One Solid Color
  If you have rooms in your house that are painted extreme colors like red or yellow, buyers might be put off in just one glance. You want to give you house the best change for being sold at the highest price. You should choose a neutral color to paint your entire house; or at least the very loud colored rooms.   If you don't know anything about painting, you might want to consider hiring a professional painter to give your home professional color coordination.  

De-Clutter Your Home
  Although it seems like a very simple step, it is very important to de-clutter your entire house. If you have magazines, books, or newspapers stacked or sitting out, throw them away or put them in a storage unit.   You can also put things into storage boxes so that you can take them with you to your next home. This is also a good time to do some spring-cleaning and throw away everything that you don't need.   Potential buyers can quickly change their “yes” to a “no” if the curb appeal outside doesn't match the interior. Obviously everyone knows that everything will be cleared out of the house when moving, but sometimes the clutter can detract from the appeal of purchasing a new house. 
 Execute Some Minor Repairs   If you notice some scratches, rips, blotches or any broken household item, you will want to try to fix it or immediately replace it. You can also hire a handyman to help you with repairs. Repairing your home before selling it will improve your home’s appearance and value.   Selling a home can often be challenging but with a little work, you can turn your house into a move-in ready home for potential buyers. You would be surprised how deep cleaning and a fresh coat of paint can completely transform a space. For more information and advice, call us today at (949) 249-5500.
