When selling Palatine real estate it is important to remember that staging helps. In today’s competitive market there are two ways to attract a buyer: price and appearance. Unfortunately a lot of sellers are not in a position, or lack the desire, to lower the price of their Palatine property too much. If your home is priced at fair market value the best move to make to insure selling success is staging.
Staging can be done by a professional, who can work with what you have or bring in a plethora of props to decorate your home and make it look its best. To save money there are also several actions to take on your own to stage and improve the appearance of your Palatine home.
The first step toward staging success is cleaning and organizing your home. De-cluttering and packing away unnecessary items is a good start. In addition de-personalize your home by packing away photos and other personal items. A potential buyer want to envision himself and his belongings in your home.
Another easy staging tip is a fresh coat of paint. Fresh paint will clean up your walls and can brighten up a room.
Maximize your use of space and make your home look as big as possible, which may mean removing some of your furniture or at the very least rearranging it.
