There is so much involved in staging, I can’t really cover it here. Just know that at the outset I will give you customized guidance in staging your home: curb appeal, de-personalizing, de-cluttering, repairing and so on. One of the key aspects of staging that can sometimes be overlooked is that it’s important to store your valuables, especially those things that people can easily stick in their pocket. This includes storing your private mail, financial statements, important papers – anything that might give clues your financial position. Also, put away any pharmaceuticals or personal items that might raise questions in the buyers’ minds or give away something about your situation. The idea is to put all the focus on the house itself so that people can imagine themselves in it.
