The difference between a staged house and an unstaged house can translate into THOUSANDS of dollars in the sales price. Clean your entire house thoroughly including the basement and garage. Buyers will be looking into every nook and cranny so be sure to organize closets and cabinets and throw away old food & junk you don’t plan on taking with you when you move. Clutter often makes rooms seem smaller, and overwhelming decorations may prevent a potential buyer from envisioning their own style in a room. Rent a storage unit and pack up as many things as you can live without and bring them to storage. Put away family photos and store personal items in drawers and cabinets. Stage your home so that each room is attractive, every closet is clean and organized and countertops are clear of clutter.
