Selling your home in Beaverton Oregon: Don't let you personal items lose you thousands when you sell your home


Enigmatic-HalflightWe all have pictures around our homes of our family and some people have a lot of religious items around the house. These personal items can cost you thousands during the sale of the home. People get distracted by the items, when they walk around the house. The stop and lookat the pictures and look at the religious stuff and when they leave the home,they can't remember a thing about the house. 


The key to having your home show ready is to have it staged by a professional stager. When you have ahome that is lived in and has lots of clutter, it just doesn't show well.

Focus on the hallway and living room and remove all the pictures of the family and paint the walls a neutral color that make the home seem more open, but lived in. Remove all furniture from a room that is older or makes it hard to walk through. Having these rooms staged can show how open it can be even with their stuff in the house. Ask a homestager to come in and give you advice on how to make the home look less cluttered, or what they would do to make the home show better.

If you have newer furniture and think you can show your home well on your own, I suggest you go to a model home in a new housing development and look what they are doing. These homes are professional staged and are designed to make you want to move in that day. By having a homestaged you can get up to 15%, or more, for your home and sell in a much shorter amount of time.

For more information on home staging and hiring a professional stager, please feel free to contact me anytime.
