Make a Good First Impression

The outside of a home is often overlooked during staging — even though it’s the first thing potential buyers see. Landscaping, flowerbeds and power washing walkways will go a long way when trying to get buyers in the door. If you have a front porch, don't forget to include outdoor furniture and potted plants.

Open a Window

When possible, always open a window! It creates a more homey and inviting feel. Opening a window before or during a showing can make the home smell fresh and feel less stuffy.

Arrange Furniture Wisely

Renting or buying the appropriate furniture is only the beginning of the process. Allowing space between your furniture and walls can create a cozy area for your buyer and their guests to enjoy without feeling like they are crammed in a corner.
