How to Stage your home for sale
In this video Andrea Osterkorn demonstrates how to stage your home for sale. It is not a comfortable process to transform your home into a home for sale. The entry way should be inviting because first impressions are important. Closets should be cleaned out. Consider renting different furniture for the living area to make it more open and inviting, and move it around to create an impression of space. Add accessories and let natural light in. Try to depersonalize the room and remove clutter so that the main, permanent features, like the fireplace attract the eye instead of the entertainment center, which will not be a permanent fixture. Clear shelves of personal things. Add greenery and warmth. Store everyday objects out of sight. Staging a house for sale requires an investment upfront, but it results in a saving in the long term because it means less time on the market, and a higher price when it is sold. The final piece of advice is to de-clutter, de-personalize and decorate!
