Having your client stage their home is an important step in the selling/buying process and can have a significant impact on how quickly and for what price their home sells. Helping your client create a plan for staging their home is an essential part of the process.
Follow our home staging checklist below:
Reduce the number of family photos throughout your home.
Use scented items to create an inviting smell in your home. Bad odors can deter some buyers.
Clean all windows inside and out, ensuring they are functioning properly. If during the winter months, cleaning the inside of the windows should be sufficient.
