Staging Your Home – How to get your home from For Sale to Sold

staging your home

Your home is a reflection of who you are, so it’s only natural that it would bear your signature — something that is uniquely your own.

However, when you put your house on the market, it may not be easy, but it’s time to pack away those things that identify your house as belonging to you. You want buyers to “mentally move in” and picture themselves living there, but that’s difficult for them to do if everywhere they look they’re reminded that this is your home.

Do think twice about displaying family photos. In addition to reminding buyers that they’re in your home, every minute they spend eying your precious photos is a minute less that they’re actually looking at your house — the very thing that you want them to pay attention to.

De-personalizing your home may be emotionally difficult, but think about what it is that really makes a house a home. It’s not the “stuff” or the “things” that are proudly displayed. It’s a mixture of laughter and dreams and memories — a combination that no amount of money could buy.

So, it’s time to pack up all those things that tug at your heartstrings, make you smile when you’re down, or just bring you pleasure by simply looking at them. That’s the good news — all of those things will be going to your new home with you.

And believe me, once you remove your signature, you have in deed made room for someone to sign on that dotted line.
