Preparing Your Home to Sale This Spring

Preparing Your Home to Sale This Spring

Spring is here and it’s a great time to put your home on the market! Because most homes are listed during spring and summer, it is important to make your home stand out.

Why Hire A Home Stager

When selling your home there are certain things you can do to make your home attractive to potential buyers. By hiring a home stager, you can increase your chances of selling faster and at a better price. According to Home Staging Resources, in a  survey of 4,200 homes, 85% of the staged homes sold for up to 25% more than unstaged homes. Staging a home makes it easier for buyers to visualize living in the property. According to the National Association of Realtors, 62% of sellers’ agents say that staging a home decreases the amount of time a home spends on the market. With these statistics in mind, the price of home staging is an investment that will add to your overall return on selling your home. Contact Elegant Living Staging to book an in-home “walk and talk” consultation. We also provide consultations for occupied homes to get owners prepared for selling. “How you Live, is not how you Sell.”

Declutter Your Home

Your home stager is a professional hired to style and furnish your property. Before hiring a home stager, do a cleaning check on each room. If you have lived in your house for a while, it is safe to assume you have accrued more than a few items that may be cluttering your common areas. To show off your home’s best assets throw away, donate, or use storage to minimize clutter.

Photo Ready

According to, leading real estate and rental online marketplace, Zillow.com, 195 million people visit the site over a month. 50% of those visitors are planning to buy. When competing with so many different sellers, your home needs to look its best.

To make the most of your home staging, consult an interior decorator. Elegant Living Decorating provides décor services to Niagara Falls and surrounding areas.
