"Homestaging" is more than just preparing to sell your home by making it look the best it can!It is the most effective form of advertising for the sale of your home in order to achieve the best price within the shortest time frame. It's really the art of first impressions. For many home sellers and real estate agents, the concept of "home staging" is being more frequently recognized and used to effectively promote and market a home in the marketplace. If you are in the process of, or thinking about, selling your home,you may want to consider hiring a professional home stager to assist you. They work with the "flow" of a home, eliminate clutter, arrange furniture, and even assist in enhancing curb appeal. Or, if you're more the do it yourself type, below are some tips on what you can do to improve your home's "first impression."

Curb appeal is the first step to selling your home. No one wants to buy a previous owner's dirty house. Power wash the siding and wash windows until they shine. Trees, shrubs, and flowers should be neat and tidy, the garden weeded and the lawn mowed and edged . Once you've removed everything that isn't necessary, add touches such as large, lush flower pots or hanging planters to welcome visitors.

                                                                                                               Move inside-INTERIOR


Once you've created a promising exterior, you need to focus on the interior. The key to staging is to make it meaningful, set the one and suggest countless possibilities.That means you need to remove everything that could distract the buyer's attention. Keep only what you must to remain functional. If you don't use something every day, pack it for  the move. This is also very important. You want to remove anything personal such as family  pictures and mementos. Like the exterior, the inside needs to be neat  and clean. Once the house is clean, stage your home with minimal furnishings. Arrange furniture to enhance the strengths of the room and facilitate traffic flow. If your furniture shows signs of age, consider borrowing pieces. If you need inspiration, visit some model homes to see how decorators have put rooms together. It's not necessary for individual rooms to be used for their original purpose as long as the functions they represent are logical and show the space off well.

                                                                                                                SPRUCE IT UP PAINT!!!!


If paint is showing signs of age, repaint. Neutrals often work best. Clear out closets, cupboards, and drawers. Strip the kitchen down to the necessities.Counters, however, should be clear, except for a decoratively placed bowl of fruit or bouquet of fresh flowers. Open the curtains to allow natural light to fill the room. Some home stagers also use scents to put the best face on a listed home. You can appeal to a buyer's sense of smell. Hot apple cider, cinnamon rolls, or fresh baked cookies add a homey sense which can be very inviting. The opposite of course is true, strong odors such as garbage or pet odors can  quickly turn people away!
