We ask that if you know someone who would be interested that you please share the information with them. And please share this video.

Home staging is the act of preparing a private residence for sale in the real estate marketplace. The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling a property more swiftly and for more money.
Tip #1 - Unnecessary Furniture
- Less stuff = more money
- Less Stuff =more room which makes the rooms look larger
Tip #2 - Don’t Block Natural Light
- Don’t have shades closed, allow room to be flooded with light
- Do not allow your realtor to take pictures with shades closed
Tip #3 - Corners
- Important to keep furniture out of corners so people can see how big the room is
Tip #4 - Knick Knacks
- The More knick knacks you put away, the more money will make. Buyers can see the extra space.
Tip #5 - Centerpieces
- You do not need to put centerpieces on the tables. Table should be nice and open.
Tip #6 - Remove Personal Pictures

- Get rid of cob webs, clean b/w windows. Spend the extra $ it makes a HUGE difference.
Tip # 9 - Paint
- Paint goes a long way. Paint home all one color. An off white color
never white – white
- Paint all trim white
- Paint your garage.
Tip #10 - Clean out Garage & Basement
- Sweep & wash down
- Paint walls off white and floor grey or use Apoxy paint
- Buyers aren’t dumb, they want a large storage space as well. You need your garage and basement to look its best as well
- Start Packing. Your Moving! Rent a storage space.
Tip #11 - Six Panel Doors
- Six Panel Doors can transform your old home into a new home. For $30, some paint and a brushed nickel door knob you can have a room that looks like a million bucks.
