With the housing market how it is these days, every aspect counts when it comes to being competitive and selling YOUR house.  I was reading the article, The Staging Diva’s Photography Tips for Real Estate Agents, my link wouldn’t work, so here’s the link if you’re interested:

Basically it talks about clean, clutter-free, and de-personalizing is the key.  Refridgerator fronts free of everything, above cabinets clear, mantels clear, etc.  So this got me interested in any other tips there might be out there.

The way you live in your home and the way you sell your home are two different things.”

-Barb Schwarz, the Creator of Home Staging

I thought this quote was insightful since we tend to only see things as we live in them.  But we must remember,

“There are two major components to selling a home quickly and for top dollar. They are:

  1. Appearance – The appearance of the home must show the buyer the value of the home
  2. Price – The price of the home must match the value of the home”

quoted from Home Stage Advantage.

And although there are many tips and  resources out there, the favorite I found was Home Staging Tips.  They go room for room through the house giving tips on exactly what to do and look for.  Sometimes it can be hard to be critical when you may have gotten used to things in your house and are unable to “see” them.  This article helps you remember those things, as well as gives other resources.

Give it a look, and good luck!!!
