Question: We are considering putting our home on the market next year. What do we need to do to get it ready?

Answer: That’s a very good question to ask ahead of time. Did you know that most prospective buyers make a decision within minutes of viewing a house? In today’s current real estate market, most buyers first see a house on the Internet making it  imperative to make your home look appealing in order to attract many prospective buyers. When you place your home on the real estate market, it needs to be in the best condition possible.

The process of staging involves firstly, de-cluttering, cleaning, repairing any thing broken and choosing neutral paint colors. These first steps are an absolute must. Next anything that is worn or outdated would also be a good consideration to replace.

Once the above things are taken care of the house can be “staged”.When a house is “staged”, it is not “decorated”. Instead, it is marketed in order that prospective buyers can focus on the architectural details of the home.
