Pack those memories away - staging your home for sale will pay off putting more $ in your pocket

Items that remind us of special people, events, milestones and interests are

 

an important part of what makes a home a home. Pictures on the fireplace

 

mantle, for example, showcase family and friends that are important to us.

 

You might also have trophies, certificates, greeting cards, and other

 

mementoes on display in key places.

stuffed animal trophy heads.   

 

Of course, all of those things add warmth and meaning to your home.

 

However, if you're preparing your home for sale, it's a good idea to pack

 

those memories away - at least until you've sold your property and moved to

 

your new home.

 

Why? Because those pleasant mementoes that mean so much to you may

 

actually turn off potential buyers.

 

You see, when buyers view your property, you want them to be able to

 

clearly picture themselves and their families living there. That's difficult to do

 

if everywhere they look they see reminders that this is your home!

 

So, to help sell your home quickly, make it look great, but not personalized.

 

Think of the showroom displays you see set up in furniture stores. Those

 

displays are most appealing when they enable you to easily picture yourself,

 

with that furniture, in your home. You probably wouldn't feel that way if it

 

looked like the furniture belonged to someone else.

 

Of course, buyers will know you currently live in your home. But helping

 

them imagine themselves living there will help you sell your property faster –

 

and possibly for a better price.
