Staging your Home to Sell

Updated: Sep 10, 2021

When it comes to staging it's no longer about personal style but rather appealing to the masses. Having grown up with a dad as a builder and mom as a Realtor I've lived in a house or two (or twenty) and like to think I know a thing or two about selling a house. Below you'll find a few tips about staging your home.

People say "don't judge a book by the cover" and yet we do, we all do. So how do make a great first impression? Regardless of the size we want your entry to feel spacious and organized. If it has space for a bench or thoughtful moment, add that. If not organization can go a long way. Put shoes and coats in the closet. Add a cute entry rug and maybe a piece of art on the wall.

Now that the first impression is a good one we can move into the main living space.

We want potential buyers to be able to envision themselves living there.

I recommend removing family photos and replacing them with artwork and portraits. After that, think about the flow of the room. The furniture should be thoughtfully laid out, creating a natural flow from space to space, while connecting them all.


In the kitchen staging is (again) about organization. If possible put away countertop appliances and other miscellaneous countertop items. Choose a few thoughtful items to display such as cutting boards, trays, or plants.

Happy Selling
