Top 10 Home-Staging Dos

Mother-and-daughter real estate pros Donna and Shannon Freeman break down the best ways to stage a home to sell.

  • Set your listing price by utilizing area comparables, not based upon what you need to buy that ostrich farm.
  • Put personal collections away someplace safe, like a bank vault in Zurich.
  • Invest in a fresh coat of paint and get 150 percent green back on your investment.
  • Disclose everything, especially the stuff you are tempted not to.
  • Fix all running toilets, or risk flushing profits down the drain.
  • Remember that “outside” is the new “inside.” Show off all of your living spaces.
  • Visit model homes to see how neutrality and spaciousness are made to feel so inviting.
  • Grind a lemon in the garbage disposal – it smells great and it’s such great exercise.
  • Display the kind of plants that aren’t injection-molded and painted in a factory somewhere overseas.
  • Keep your day job. Hire an agent and assist them in doing what they do best.
