Knowing that your home is sold is a great way to reduce moving stress – and one of the best ways to prime your home for sale is to stage it correctly. Here are tips from top resources:
Reduce the amount of furniture and unnecessary objects
To quote Styled, Stages, Sold, a blog of Realtor.org: “Clear all unnecessary objects from furniture throughout the house. Keep accessories and objects on the furniture restricted to groups of 1, 3, or 5 items. In general, a de-cluttered home helps the buyer mentally “move in” with their own things. Rearrange or remove some of the furniture in your home, if necessary. Many times home owners have too much furniture in a room. When it comes to selling your home, thin out overcrowded rooms to make the rooms appear larger.”
