One thing that hasn’t changed during the coronavirus pandemic is the importance of staging your home before listing it for sale. Cleaning, decluttering, and making updates will help your home look its best in listing photos and video walk-throughs, so it’s crucial not to skip this step in the selling process. Here are some essential staging tips to help you prepare your home!

Start with a Deep Decluttering

A decluttered home will appear bigger, brighter, and more welcoming in your photos and videos.

  • Start your decluttering process early — it will take longer than you think!

  • Remove personal items to avoid distracting your potential buyers.

  • Buyers will want to see your storage spaces, so be sure to declutter the garage.

Take Care of Home Repairs

Homes in need of repairs — no matter how small — can scare away potential buyers.

Do Some Painting

Painting is the easiest and most affordable way to help your home sell faster and for a higher asking price when you put it on the market.

  • You can make rooms look bigger by using light colors.

  • Avoid paint colors that buyers tend to dislike, such as terracotta and slate grey.

  • Repainting your kitchen cabinets may help you avoid a costly renovation project.

  • A fresh coat of paint to your front door will boost your curb appeal instantly!

Shoot Great Photos and Videos

With the right equipment and know-how, you can capture beautiful listing photos and shoot engaging walkthroughs for potential buyers.

Preparing your home for photos and video walkthroughs is just as important as prepping it for an open house. Since buyers can’t step inside and explore your home themselves, take the time to paint an accurate and immersive picture of the property in your online listings. Good staging techniques will help you capture the hearts of virtual house hunters and quickly close your sale!
