Two Tips On Proper Home Staging

by Bryan Bomba

Staging has become a requirement of proper marketing in residential real estate. If you're going to be marketing your house, your competition will have the benefit of staging. So, you need it, too. 

Don't overstage your house. While it must be professionally prepared for sale, don't overdo it and make it blatantly obvious that the house has been staged. There is a balance that needs to be struck between properly getting a home ready for sale and making a prospective buyer feel sold to. If you don't know where this line is, ask someone who does know. 

Do not stage every room in the house. Your house will only sell after the prospective buyers psychologically sees themselves living in your house. If the environment is too sterile or overstaged, they will not be able to see themselves living there. A good example of where not to stage could be a home office or kids' playroom.
