Most Frequent Home Staging Tips

Fix any visible problems including repainting stained walls.

Cover damaged kitchen or bathroom floors with inexpensive peel-and-stick vinyl floor tiles — if a more expensive change seems out of the question.

Repaint rooms including the kitchen, dining room, and living room.

Clean up the exterior of the house, add potted plants, repair damaged walkways, and put a fresh coat of paint on the front door.

Rent a storage unit and get rid of about half the furniture and most of the personal items.

When showing the property, turn on every light in the house and tune radios on each floor to the same classical music station.

Refrain from doing much cooking although baking sweets is a good idea. Put good-smelling soaps in all the bathrooms.
