Forgetting about staging is not a good idea!
A lot of the time, sellers can be resistant to the idea of staging their home when they're trying to sell. They believe that potential buyers should be able to look past their furniture and personal belongings to determine whether or not they want to buy the home. However, that's not always the case. In reality, people are very visual and, like it or not, sometimes they can get thrown off by aesthetics. Staging your home is important because it helps minimize any distractions and makes sure that your home is being shown in its best light.
There are a few keys to staging appropriately The first is to depersonalize. Be sure to pack away any family photos and personalized décor items. You want to make it as easy as possible for potential buyers to visualize themselves living in the home. The second is to invest in neutral décor in order to appeal to as many buyers as possible. Another suggestion is to keep your home clean. Put simply, clean homes show much better than "lived in" ones.
