Selling Your Brevard County, Florida Home - Do I need to stage my home to sell it?

Let's assume you were trying to sell this VW Bug.  Would you even consider showing it to a prospective buyer with such a distraction?

Of course not!

The same thought process should apply when trying to sell your home.

I believe all properties benefit from staging - not just the big, fancy, high priced executive homes.  Still, I am not advising anyone to re-decorate your home if you are planning to sell.

But I will provide this one rule of thumb....

If it does not enhance your home's characteristics 
  • change it (burned out lighting, 70s carpet)
  • hide it (junk, personal items, valuables, medicines)
  • move it (too much furniture)
  • paint it (personal colors are great for you, but think neutral)or 
  • account for it in the price (if the buyer must replace or repair)!

Please remember staging is not being deceptive.   It is not intended to hide something that should be disclosed to a potential buyer.  

  What Home Staging is ( and is not)…

I suggest, at a minimum, consider hiring a stager for a consultation.  The input of a neutral third party may just be the impetus to get your house sold.
