Highlight the strengths and downplay the weaknesses to appeal to the greatest possible pool of prospective buyers with these home staging tips.
The most important thing you can do to prepare your home for sale is to remove the clutter. Make a house rule that for every new item that comes in, two have to leave.
Encourage buyers to fall in love with your home from the street by adding potted plants and flowers, power-washing patios and walkways, weeding the garden and mowing the lawn. You’ll never get a second chance at a firstt impression.
Clean it up
Imagine your home is a hotel and mop, dust, vacuum, wash windows, baseboards — even the cat. Remember that people will look in your cupboards, under your sinks and in your closets. Also, pay particular attention to creating a welcoming aroma with candles and diffusers.

Pay attention to colour and light.
You may love hot pink in the living room, but colours that are too bright may not be to everyone’s taste. Neutralise strong colours for the broadest appeal. A neutral colour palate also has the benefit of making the home appear larger.
