STAGING BEAUTIFUL HOMES
"BEFORE & AFTER"
Basic Staging Rules
#1 Clean & Eliminate Clutter
Maybe the hardest rule for most, as we love our clutter. We love
our memories, sports, hobbies, toys, and pictures, but it
doesn't sell our homes!! We need to "SELL OUR SPACE".
Really "clean & clean again" Especially mold & mildew!!
#2 Fix everything before you put your home on the market.
#3 Stay Neutral to encourage & allow your potential buyers walking
through your home to imagine themselves living in the home as
the Owners. Neutral colors sell!
#4 De-personalize your home by "removing" all personal items.
Buyers need to imagine themselves in your home.
LIVING ROOM "BEFORE"
The Living Room had three
comfortable, but large leather
pieces, plus a beautiful table
The fireplace & custom mantel
are the focal point of this 20x20
entertainment and leisure area.
Notice that the "focal point" is
completely obstructed & not
The custom shelves are too
busy. The clock is nice, but
probably too "small" for the
Living Room After
The Living Room is now showing the "space you have to
sell & the fireplace & mantel are now the "focal point" of
of the room.
The way we live is not always the way we should sell our
home. Staging is somewhat like making your home look
like a model.
