Preparing Your Home

Ryan Platzke


In our years of experience, we have learned that potential buyers have a difficult time envisioning themselves and their belongings in homes they tour.  Home staging is intended to neutralize your home to assist potential buyers in seeing the home you are selling as their own.  We engage a professional stager to assist in preparing your home for sale.  The stager will make recommendations on furniture arrangement, art placement and many other things they feel will optimize the way your home shows.
In addition to the stager, try to see your home as a potential buyer will see it, and keep these points in mind:

  • Tidy up the grounds, porches and garage. Keep the lawn trimmed and edged. Make sure your yard is clean.
  • Your front door adds to the first impression – be sure it is scrubbed or repainted if necessary.
  • Wash windows and clean/dust window coverings.
  • If any decorating or painting is needed, do it before you list your home.
  • Bathrooms help sell houses, make them sparkle.
  • Keep pets out of the way during showings – many people are allergic.
  • Leave the showing to the sales person. The sales person knows the buyer’s requirements.
  • Leave your home during the showing.  Don’t discuss anything about the sale with a potential customer.
  • Pack away valuables, store extra furniture, knick-knacks and medicines.
Remember, our goal is to help you sell your home for the most amount of money, in the shortest period of time, with the least amount of inconvenience to you.
There is only one chance to make a good first impression!
