How to Stage Your Home While You Live in It

Staging your home is one of the most important pieces of the selling process. If you are currently living in your home, however, the staging process can be quite challenging! Often, you will not receive much notice before an open house, and your home needs to look ready.

Here are a few tips to help make staging your home an easy process:

Depersonalize It: This may be the hardest part of selling your home, but it is important! Get rid of all of your personal items and box them up for storage. Photos, mementos, and other personal touches should be packed away. This is done to let the buyer make the space what they envision when they walk into your home.
Clean it Daily: Once your home has been staged, it needs to be cleaned daily in preparation for any open houses. You can do this yourself, or you can hire a cleaner to help make it easier on you!
Organize Your Space: Make sure there is no clutter throughout your home. Put away most items on counters and dressers to ensure a clean looking space! Typically, your home’s clutter should be reduced by 30%.
Talk to a Real Estate Agent: If staging is too stressful for you, don’t sweat it! An experienced real estate agent can help walk you through the process and make it easier on you.
