Home Staging Tips!

 

The Do’s and Don’ts of Preparing your Home to Sell

by Maxine Foldiak

The first thing you should do when starting to prepare your home to sell is to DE-CLUTTER! There is nothing worse than walking into a room and not knowing where to look. This rule applies to both furniture and objects. A mantle above a fireplace should only have 3 to 5 items at most, unless it’s a multitude of small picture frames or certain valuable pieces that one may have collected over time. Your life doesn’t need to be on display. I suggest having a garage sale, this will help you not only de-clutter your current home, but it will allow you to trim down ahead of a move. People need to be able to envision themselves living in your home, and if you live in chaos and clutter, it is very hard for people to see past all that mess. Getting rid of items throughout a home that either don’t belong within the space or items that do not serve a purpose will allow for a better viewing experience and hopefully will allow for you to sell your home quickly.

Number two is to neutralize the palette of the home. In some cases, people love a vibrant blue dining room paired with a ruby red bedroom and a powder room covered in floral wallpaper. But when selling your home, you want to appeal to more than a few potential buyers.  And yes, people say that a little paint can fix anything and as a designer I very much agree. When you are selling you want people to walk in and remember how amazing the finishes were, how beautiful the original wood work is, the original moldings that carry throughout, the hardwood floors and large tiles, the size of the rooms etc.…Unfortunately, many people cannot see past the aesthetics of a home and they harp on things that can easily be changed.  It is your job as the homeowner to help showcase your house in the best light.  If you have a neutral palette that carries throughout the home, people will focus more on the character of the home and the things that truly matter.
