Don’t Be Intimidated By Staging a Highlands NC Home for Sale

Don’t be intimidated by the idea of staging a Highlands NC home for sale.  You do not have to be a professional designer to do a good job.  But, you do need to pay attention to the basic rules.  It is simple.  Your goal is to find a buyer for your Highlands NC property.

Where do you start?  The basics of staging include: cleaning, decluttering, depersonalizing, deodorizing, and rearranging furniture and artwork.  You can start where you want but decluttering and depersonalizing is a great first step.  Put anything you can live without in a box. Pack away family photos and children’s artwork as well as miscellaneous knick-knacks that hold personal connections to you but will mean nothing to would-be buyers.

Cleaning and deodorizing can follow the decluttering.  Your Highlands NC home must be spotless and odor-free to appeal to everyone walking through the front door.  This is a simple project but time consuming.  In addition to the obvious every drawer, cabinet, and closet much be clean and organized!

The final step of staging requires a bit of vision.  You need to arrange furniture and artwork in such a way that rooms are appealing and make the best use of space. Buyers are attracted to space and do not want rooms to appear too small.  If this step seems above your ability you can always ask your Highlands NC REALTOR for advice or hire a professional stager or decorator.
