The first thing you should do is clear your house. You will have to try to look at your house with new eyes, many times we are so used to clutter that we block it! Go through each room and remove any clutter you see. Organize the toys in decorative boxes that are hidden in a storage room (perhaps a storage room in the basement). You can always take them back out when you don’t have any tours booked. The shelves should be neat and attractive interspersed with a few embellishments. Closets should be cleaned so that only clothing is visible. Remove storage at the top and bottom of cabinets. Store clothes out of season. You have to move anyway and you will have to pack less later when you move in!

Lighting is important, so make sure rooms are well lit, provide pleasant ambient lighting with lamps, and avoid bright and glaring fluorescent ceiling lights. The lobby provides the buyer with the first impression. It should be clean, neat, bright and welcoming. If any room is dull, light it up with higher wattage bulbs in the lamps.

You want the buyer to imagine himself living in the house, so you have to remove all his personal photos and replace them with prints or other decorations. You want the buyer to focus on your home, not your personal life. This can be distracting.

It is mandatory to apply a new coat of paint. Paint your house a neutral color, but don’t make it too boring. Tan, sage, and beige are good colors. You can add something of interest with colored accessories, pillows, rugs, candles, etc.

Bathrooms must be sparkling! Counters must be clean with no visible personal items. Bathtub tile grout should be clean and shower curtains and glass shower doors should be free of mold. Hang fluffy, colorful towels on the towel rods. Put the decorative soaps in cute containers. Buy a new shower curtain and a floor mat.

The kitchen is a key selling point in your home and it should be spotless. Remove all notes, magnets, etc. from the front of the refrigerator. Keep the counter space clean and clear of all items. Clean under sinks and organize pantry and cabinets. Paint outdated cabinets a neutral color and put new modern door knobs for a fresh look. Plates on the floor for pet food must be removed during a display.

Make your furniture look cozy, but don’t put too much in one room. Leave space between pieces and remove nicks. Your most attractive piece of furniture should be placed on the wall you see when you enter a room, if possible. Keep all your CDs and videos out of sight. Hang pictures at eye level or in groups of geometric shapes. Group the accessories in odd numbers (one, three or five). A flower arrangement, a mantle clock, or a piece of art would be appropriate here.

Curb appeal is important and buyers’ first impression of your home will be from the outside. Garages and front and back yards need to be well cleaned and trimmed. Put away toys that are in the garden. Plant flowers or shrubs in the garden for a cozy effect. Plum the bushes you already have. Clean the pool if you have one. The lawn must be cut and watered to give the house a well-kept appearance. It may also be necessary to apply a coat of paint to the exterior of the house.

When someone comes in for a visit, make sure the house is spotless. Turn on table lamps for ambient lighting. Put on some soft music to set the mood. Spray on some air freshener beforehand to give the house a nice smell – not too much or it might seem like you’re hiding an odor! Try putting some vases with fresh flowers on the tables to make it more attractive.

Not everyone can afford a stager, but it is worth the money and could pay for itself and then for a higher asking price.
