If you're considering selling your home, Staging is a great way to make your home sell fast, and for the maximum value.  Below are a list of 10 secrets to staging:

  1. Conquer Clutter: Clear out, clean up, and get rid of clutter.
  2. Less is More: The rule of thumb is two pieces of furniture per wall.
  3. Float Furniture: Pull furniture away from the wall to create furniture groups and control traffic flow through rooms.
  4. Mix old and new: artfully mixing contemporary and vintage decorations creates a fresh and inviting feel.
  5. Let Light In: Replace heavy drapery with light curtains.  Pull the curtains back to let the light in.
  6. Illuminate the Rooms: Aim for 100 watts every 50 square feet with different light sources.
  7. Don’t Fear Color: Painting is the cheapest, easiest way to create a new look for your room.  Consider darker colors, as they can make the room feel more intimate, warm, and cozy.
  8. Accessorize with Threes: Odd numbered groups for accessories, especially threes, tend to be more eye appealing.
  9. Bring the Outdoors In: Well-placed floral arrangements and greenery make a room more inviting and warm.
  10. Make an Entrance: The first impression of the home is the one that lasts so make the curb appeal and the entry way clean and inviting.
