How to stage your home for maximum appeal when selling

When your home is on the market, ensuring it’s marketed properly, priced well and beautifully presented will give you an edge over the competition.

Presentation is often the make or break aspect of a sale; buyers will see a significantly higher value in a perfectly presented version of your home than exactly the same home without some polish.

Staging is all about presentation of the property to highlight the home’s best attributes.

It also works to create an emotional connection with the home – because your buyer isn’t just looking for a place to inhabit, they are looking for a property to realise their dreams or improve their way of life.

Home Staging can also help buyers visualise their own life inside the walls of your home. For this reason, a substantial part of the process is the removal of anything that looks like it needs work when they move in – including too much furniture or a room badly in need of paint.

There are professionals that will stage a home for you in preparation for sale, and they’re extremely good at their work.

However, if you want to give staging a go yourself, here are two things to keep in mind:


Take a long, hard look at what you have and decide what could reasonably be housed elsewhere for the time your home is on the market. Aim for at least a 30% decrease of “stuff” in your home. Organise décor into boxes and neatly stack in the garage, unless you can store offsite. Extra furniture should be housed offsite.

Think Creatively

Staging doesn’t have to be expensive. Think neutral when you’re updating and keep the “less is more” motto in mind. Clean out your closets to show off your storage space. Storage usually ranks high on buyers’ priority lists. Have your bathroom professionally cleaned including any tiling throughout the home. Keep decorations, but stick to only three of anything on any surface to give a polished look keeping a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere.

A little creativity goes a long way in making your house look fantastic and still keep costs down.


No Hidden Fee Guarantee

We find one of the biggest mistakes buyers and sellers make is basing their choice of Settlement Agent only on price.  With many of our competitors offering ridiculously low rates for your settlement we are finding that many of our clients talk about the hidden fees that are then added on top of this rate once the settlement contract is signed.
