Looking to sell a house that just won’t move? Staging may be the answer. You can stage a home yourself or employ a professional. The basic premise is that you can decorate a home expressly for selling. Buyers want to see a spacious, neutral, well kept, and inviting home. To achieve this, sellers should remove junk, treasures, photos, and excess furniture. Just rent a storage unit and move it all out. Then arrange the furniture and place decorative items as if it were a model home. Correctly staging your house can add 10% to 15% to the sale price. To help sellers in a tough market, Rod Thomas of Axis Property Investment has put together a useful list of tips for making your property more appealing to potential buyers. In addition to staging the home to show it’s best attributes, make sure all repairs have been completed, rooms are painted using neutral colors, and the property is well-lit and clean. These simple steps can make your house stand out and earn you the highest price for your property.
