Home Staging & Planning for Showings


Homes that have been well-maintained and convey pride of ownership appeal to perceptive, motivated buyers. Below are some simple steps you can take to ensure your home is in "show shape" when you are ready to sell.

  • Clean or replace carpets and/or other flooring, such as vinyl or hardwoods.
  • Wash the windows and window coverings.
  • Clean the kitchen and baths until they sparkle.
  • Clear and pack away clutter and sell or store excess furniture.
  • Clean your closets--extra storage space helps sell homes.
  • Paint or touch up any rooms that need it. Use neutral colors, which have more universal appeal.
  • Take down family pictures and other personal decorations. The more your house looks like your home, the harder it is for buyers to imagine themselves living there.
  • Clean the basement and garage. Neatly stack and store boxes.

Your home's cleanliness and appeal create an unconscious impression. That impression can determine the likelihood of an offer.

Each listing comes with a complimentary staging consultation from a local expert. You will receive specific suggestions to help you stage your home for sale. Not to worry, this is time for minor adjustments, not a major remodel.

What is a Comparative Market Analysis?


A Comparative Market Analysis or CMA is a report that contains valuable information on several recent real estate sales. It will include information on:

    • How long each property stayed on the market

    • How close the sale price was to the asking price

    • Notes comparing each home to yours

Reviewing comparable homes that have sold within the past year, along with the listing or asking price on current homes for sale, should help you determine a fair sale price for your property.
