9 Home Staging Tips to Help You Sell this Spring

  1. Clean like a demon.  Wash floors, walls, inside the stove, fridge and cupboards.  Wash the window frames to boost natural light and hang clean drapes.  Good looking windows can be left bare.
  2. Get (un)personal.  Take down every single family or personal photo.  Leave artwork, but remove personal knicknacks and clutter.
  3. Do small repairs.  Regrout yellowing tilework and replaced chipped linoleum.  Professionally clean carpets.
  4. Paint.  A fresh coat of paint is the easiest and most inexpensive way to give your home a facelift.  Here are some no-fail neutral colours from Benjamin Moore:  Feather Down (OC6), Natural Cream (OC14) and Nantucket Grey (HC111)
  5. Get sorted.  Potential buyers WILL open closets and cupboards, so pack away half of the contents and organize what is left.
  6. Think scents.  You may not notice pet or cigarette odours but others will.  Air the house thoroughly and use odour-neutralizing sprays.  Remove kitty litter and during showings, remove kitty too.  Ditto for Fido.
  7. Warm it up.  If you're showing at night, light a fire for a cozy feel.  If it's daytime, make sure every blind is open and the lights are on.
  8. Park it.  Organize your garage as much as possible.  It might mean hiding your stuff in neat looking boxes or cabinets. 
  9. Go Green.  Bring in plants and fresh flowers for a sense of life.
