It’s the oft-forgotten rule to sell a home quickly: you aren’t selling the actual house; you’re selling the idea of the house. Many, many realtors and home owners make the mistake of thinking that prospective buyers are interested in the actual property—and they are on some level—but what they are really looking for in a home is whether or not they can envision themselves and their families there. This is why staging is so important!

If you want to sell your home quickly, you absolutely have to stage it.  Not sure where to start? We have 3 secrets from the experts to share with you:

1)    De-clutter.  Get rid of or sell 2/3 of your stuff. This is an absolute must for selling a home quickly.

2)    Reposition furniture. Don’t be afraid to move the furniture around, but keep in mind that your grouping should do two things: create coziness and provide a feeling of flow through the home.

3)    Lots of light. Get bright bulbs and open curtains. Lots of light will help your house avoid looking dingy and will definitely help you sell your home quickly.

Staging doesn’t have to be tricky. Keep it simple, keep it clean, and keep it bright and you’ll be in good shape.
