Nothing can make or break the sale of your property, like the way it is presented. One of the keys to success (both in length of time to sell, and in the price you ultimately accept), is the staging (or presentation) of the home.
At On The Block, we recognize the value of a well-staged home, so we don’t just provide advice, but we put it to action, with an inventory of pieces that can help, as well as our exclusive hotel partnerships where we send our sellers off to relax once the house is up for sale.
Every On The Block listing gets a week for FREE in a partner hotel so that your home can remain in pristine condition while we keep the showings going.
Highlight your home’s strengths, downplay its weaknesses and appeal to the greatest possible pool of prospective buyers with these home-staging tips.
Bye Bye Clutter
The most important thing you can do to prepare your home for sale is to get rid of clutter. Make a house rule that for every new item that comes in, an old one has to leave. One of the major contributors to a cluttered look is having too much furniture. When professional stagers descend on a home being prepped for market, they often whisk away as much as half the owner’s furnishings, and the house looks much bigger for it. You don’t have to whittle that drastically, but take a hard look at what you have and ask yourself what you can live without.
