4 Easy Tips for Staging Property for Sale, Jersey City, New Jersey

As you prepare your home to enter the real estate market, staging will draw in buyers and help to close the deal. However, the experts at EXIT Realty Urban Living in Jersey City, NJ, explain that the process involves more than simply putting up a few pieces of decor. When prospective buyers come to view a property for sale, you must help them imagine a new and desirable life there.

Here, the professionals share a few effective and easy techniques for showcasing your property for sale:

  • property for saleDepersonalize: For buyers to be able to picture themselves living there, sellers must create a clean slate. Remove everything that isn’t neutral, including religious decor, family photographs, and pieces that favor a very specific taste.
  • Clean: Regardless of how beautiful a structure is, dirt is off-putting to buyers. Have your house professionally cleaned, and ask for a move-out cleaning, as they will be more thorough in scrubbing grout lines or wiping out cupboards.
  • Declutter: Sellers can rent a storage unit for items they clear out. Best practice is to remove about a third of your belongings during staging. Closets should be near empty, and everything that isn’t decor or necessary for everyday living should be taken out. Decluttering makes the space more welcoming, and the home appear bigger.
  • Show Off the Home: When staging, it’s easy to get caught up in beautiful furniture and attention-demanding decor. Instead, choose neutral furniture and items that allow the space to shine. For example, a nice, simple piece over the fireplace will complement it rather than draw attention away from it. 

If you need guidance in preparing a property for sale, EXIT Realty Urban Living provides unmatched support for their clients and staff.
