It is very important to stage a home right to help sell it. One of the most important things is the front. If someone does not like the front, it is very difficult to get them to go inside, even thought the inside may be beautiful. Your front door is the first thing the buyers see – give it some fresh paint and make it shine!
Consider your clutter piles. You know when there is a clutter pile in a certain area of the house, sometimes I tend to block it out if I get busy. If it is not too big, I can forget it is there. I would be the first one to notice though I did not live there and were walking in. You need to consider what other people would see. Would you want to buy the house if you were walking in for the first time? Some times you can also get used to a smell if you have one in your home.
Another thing to do is if you cannot find a place for items that are making the place seem small, get a storage unit. Hopefully it will be for the short term. Believe me, it will make all the difference.
