Staging your home is an important step towards selling and when you desire a quick sell there are ways you can do the job yourself. Home staging is beneficial because it impresses buyers with a great first impression and they do not want to see a home with work that needs to be done. Staging is also said to help sell quickly and for the highest possible price.

There are some areas that are the most important to stage. These include the entryway, living room, kitchen, bathrooms and master bedroom. The first step is to clean the house. Make it spotless! Clean every corner, even if you think they can’t see it. You want everything to look sparkling and brand new.

Decluttering is essential when showing your home. Clutter makes the house crowded, feel smaller and distracts the potential buyers from the beautiful features your home has to offer. You may even want to rent a storage space to keep the storage areas in your home like closets clutter free as well. Remove items from countertops and shelves, like knic-knacks. Too much furniture also adds clutter to the home. See what furniture items you can remove to help the home look much larger. You’ll want to remove any items in the home that are personal to your family, like family photos and items with names on them etc. This helps the buyer envision themselves in the home. 

Overall it is best to have the decorating kept very neutral. This includes wall paint. You might want to consider changing boldly coloured walls to something light, neutral and modern. Painting is affordable and a quick way to make a big difference. 

The last do-it-yourself staging step is to check over the lighting in each room. Good lighting is one of the things that helps your staged home to look warm and welcoming. You can simply increase the wattage in your bulbs and also add more fixtures to the space, like floor lamps and table lamps. 

These quick and easy staging steps should help you sell your house in no time!

  On behalf of Jennifer and I, we would like to thank you for all of the hard work you put into finding us our first home together. It is very reassuring to find someone who really takes the time to make sure that every little thing is done right. Jennifer and I spent months looking for a place to live. We both had very specific requests which didn't always make it easy for you.

By taking the time to ask us the right questions you were able to find our dream house. I must say that you went above and beyond taking a large amount of your time showing us different properties. As I'm sure that you would agree, I am very particular and I like to see every house that is out there before I make a decision. I have worked with REALTORS in the past that were only concerned about "closing the deal" and earning their commission. I never got that feeling from you. I always believed that you had our best interests at heart. I would not hesitate to call you in the future if we are looking for a larger property or investment property. Your knowledge of the Hamilton-Burlington market is quite extensive.

Jen and I are extremely happy and would recommend your services to anyone interested in purchasing a home or investment property.

Adam Berti, Hamilton, ON
