5 Must-Read Tips When Selling Your Home
Take note of these reminders before putting up the SALE sign
Deciding to sell your home is not as easy as putting the property up for sale or having it listed online. A lot of things need to be considered such as pending renovations, taxes, and mortgage bills. Many homeowners are not familiar about staging, but the art of prepping your space to make it appealing to potential buyers is of utmost importance.
To give you an idea of what staging is all about, here are a few tips to help you get started:

Hide anything personal or has sentimental value
Keep items that you love dearly and replace it with pieces that will appeal to the broadest range of potential buyers. As much as possible, stick to neutral colors and generic decor items that they can easily update according to their style.
As much as possible, don't leave the areas bare. Each room should showcase its purpose and the buyers should feel at home the moment they step inside. Fluff the pillows in the living room, add a couple of potted plants, and make sure that the whole house is clean.
It's okay to make the home look lived in but be wary of adding to many accessories. Curate your items well and feel free to set up vignettes. Going all out can result in a cramped and cluttered space that won't look inviting.

Instead of displaying faux flowers and plastic fruits, you may want to add fresh flowers in a clear vase instead. This will give your home a welcoming vibe that would appeal to homeowners, too.
Ask help from a pro
There are professional home stagers that can help you prepare your home for buyers. Remember that good home staging is rarely cheap, and cheap home staging is rarely good. Choose a stager based on their expertise and portfolio. You can also ask for recommendations from friends and design professionals.
