Thinking of Buying or Selling?

PRELIST HOME Staging Guide

Achieve a Faster Sale at a Higher Price. Enable potential buyers to visualize themselves in the space. Depersonalize your home and ensure that it makes a great impression, especially online where most house hunting begins.


Core Principles:

  1. Picture It! Buyers are visualizing their life in your space. Is it ideal for a family or a serene retirement?
  2. Objective Approach: Staging gives an unbiased view, decluttering and decorating so viewers see it as their potential home.
  3. Benefits: Understand that staging isn’t remodeling. It accentuates the best features without extensive renovations.
  4. Budgeting Tips: Be resourceful without overspending. Opt for soft neutrals and ensure the ambiance is inviting and livable.


Room-Specific Tips:

  • Kitchen: The heart of the home. Declutter, accent with color, and keep it clean and bright.
  • Family Room: Highlight features like fireplaces, make it spacious, and remove too personal items.
  • Dining Room: Depersonalize, keep it spacious, and use trendy, cost-effective decorations.
  • Bedrooms: Ensure a restful sanctuary, especially in the master suite. Declutter and organize efficiently.
  • Bathrooms: Maintain impeccable cleanliness and stick to neutral decors.


Other Spaces:

  • Home Office: Keep it professional and organized.
  • Front Entryway: First impressions count. Keep it elegant and clutter-free.
  • Garage, Laundry Room, Basement: These might be lower priorities, but cleanliness and organization are still vital.
  • Outdoors: Ensure a clean, safe, and inviting exterior.


Key Guidelines:

  1. Plan Ahead: Put yourself in the buyer’s shoes. Consider professional inspections and declutter aggressively.
  2. Maximize Curb Appeal: Make the exterior welcoming. Ensure cleanliness and that everything is in repair.
  3. Clean, Declutter, and Depersonalize: Scrub every corner, repair where necessary, and remove personal items.
  4. Appeal to the Senses: A fresh, inviting ambiance can make all the difference. Light, scent, and sound can influence a buyer’s perception.
  5. Show Off Your Home’s Best Features: Emphasize unique attributes, from views to special amenities.


In Conclusion: Staging is a strategic method to highlight the best features of your home, making it attractive to potential buyers. With a thoughtful approach, you can create a space that resonates with viewers and possibly speeds up the selling process.
