Working with first time home sellers is just as exciting as working with first time home buyers! If you’ve considered selling your first home, it can be overwhelming. I strongly encourage all my sellers to stage their homes. Staged homes sell a lifestyle, they sell a story, not just a home. Staging is an investment, which when you are a first time home seller, you may not have a large amount to put into staging. Here are a few quick tricks to help you organize and stage your home:
- Organize those junk drawers! Sounds crazy, but buyers trust sellers who have organized clean homes. Any disorder starts to bring in doubt. You can find organizers for $5 at your local dollar store or here on Amazon.
- Add in fresh flowers. They bring a pop of color and have a homey welcoming feel. Add them in the kitchen, on the table where you eat and in the main bedroom.
- Get a little basket to keep your every day bathroom items in so you can hide them under the sink but access quickly when you need them.
- Keep clutter at bay with a mail organizer & portable filing pocket. Make sure everything has a place – it makes it so much easier to clean!
