Lessons from a Pro When Selling Your Home



Lessons from a Pro When Selling Your Home – A professional home stager recently decided to sell the 4,000+ square foot home she lived in with her husband. It was well maintained and by most standards, could have gone on the market immediately. However, she still went through a full staging effort before she listed the home.

The work included painting inside and out, changing the kitchen cabinets from gray to white. The carpet was replaced along with a few outdated light fixtures. They stained the fence and added minor landscaping to make it look fresh and inviting. They removed personal items from the home that could be distracting. Replaced a few furniture pieces that were too large and might have limited a buyer’s imagination.  Then they did a deep clean, inside and out including windows and garage.

The home looked and smelled clean. It had great drive-up appeal. Each room looked like it belonged in a magazine and the professional photos let potential buyers see the home before they visited in person. When the home did come on the market, it sold in five days, above list price with multiple offers, and at a considerably higher sales price than previous comparable sales had indicated it would sell.
