Staging is very important if you want your home to make a good first impression.
While every room is important, you should focus on three types of rooms that buyers tend to pay particular attention to: kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms.
In the kitchen, make sure the stove, sink and countertops are spotless. Countertops should be clear of anything that isn’t necessary since you want to create the impression that there is a lot of counter space.
Keep bathrooms clean and uncluttered. Remove personal items from the countertop and keep the shower curtain open. Make sure that the towels match and are neatly hung on the rack.
Keep the bedrooms neat and make sure the bed is made, preferably with matching covers and pillow cases. Closets should be tidy with clothes hung neatly. If you have shoes in your closet, make sure they are neatly arranged. Loose files and papers that are stored in the closet should be removed. Don’t leave any clothes out of the dresser or closet, and make sure that the hamper is empty.
