Staging a home for an open house can take a lot of work, and sometimes you may need a professional touch when it comes to making sure your house is market-ready. Landscaping, updating fixtures and appliances, and repainting are all fairly easy DIY solutions, but for some homeowners, there’s much more to it than that. If you have pets, for instance, you want to make sure there are no traces of them anywhere once your house is listed. Of course, cleaning is a big part of staging your home, as well as getting rid of any unsightly stains or odors. You also want to make sure that your home, while inviting and warm, is not too personalized with family photos or belongings. The key is to make potential buyers feel that they could move in tomorrow and be completely comfortable. Read on for some of the best tips on how to stage your home for an open house.
