Get It Sold: 10 Tips From a Home Staging Pro

ThinkstockPhotos-80719906.jpg

They say you only get one chance at a first impression. So if would-be buyers have already sidestepped your bursting-at-the-seams closet or shuddered at your dreary laundry room, you can’t undo it — but you can do some strategic home staging before the next house-hunter shows up.

Barb Nazzaro, a professional house stager who runs A Simply Staged Home, in Natick, Massachusetts, insists that it’s essential to stage. “When people walk into a house, they form an opinion almost instantaneously.” There’s a knee-jerk reaction that happens, she says; within seconds, buyers either adore the place or want to flee. And while homes in hot neighborhoods may sell themselves, Nazzaro says any home can benefit from staging to bump up the asking price and help speed a sale.

“People see gorgeous homes on television and want exactly that for themselves,” Nazzaro says. And, she adds, just as you wouldn’t wear sweatpants to a job interview, your home needs to put its best foot forward. Moving represents a fresh start, and if your home isn’t clean and doesn’t evoke a peaceful feeling, potential buyers will bail.

Here’s how to make your house gorgeous for its time in the spotlight:

1. Purge the hallway closet.

2. Edit the china cabinet.

3. Liven up the laundry room.

4. Tidy the kitchen cabinets.

5. Scale back on photos and wall hangings.

6. Add a bed skirt.

7. …And while you’re at it, change your comforter or duvet.

8. Round up the kid stuff.

9. Beautify bedroom closets.

10. Don’t forget the basement and the attic.

Get moving boxes from your local liquor store

Pay a visit to your local liquor store (that’s where you can buy the aforementioned wine) to see if they recycle their used boxes. If so, ask if you can grab a handful so you’re saving a little paper in your moving journey.

Just make sure the boxes are very gently worn and that you only use them to hold lightweight items like linens and towels. You don’t want to deal with ripped boxes and broken valuables on the big day.

Shield Your Glassware from Damage!

3 WAYS TO SHIELD YOUR GLASSWARE FROM DAMAGE

You’re fairly certain the kitchen table will arrive in one piece, but what about your glassware? Here are three simple tips for better protecting your valuables:

• Wrap every glass individually
• Layer the bottom of your box with packing paper
• Shake your box and listen for clinking

If you can hear glasses clinking together, wrap them in another layer of newspaper or packing paper. Additionally, you can fill empty space with paper or bubble wrap.

Tips for a Smooth Move

Get the Bed Ready: Designate one drawer of a dresser for sheets and towels so that you won’t have to rummage through boxes for these essentials the first night in your new home.

Don’t forget about the Fridge: After you’ve thoroughly cleaned and dried the inside of your refrigerator, put a handful of fresh coffee, baking soda or charcoal in a sock or nylon stocking and place it inside to keep the interior smelling fresh.

 

Pack Heavy – Pack Light: Pack heavy items in small boxes and lighter items in larger boxes.

 

Protect Your Memories: If it’s irreplaceable, take it with you in the car (you don’t want regrets later). But if you do decide to pack framed photos or art, place sheets or blankets between them for added protection.

 

Know how to Pack Plates and Records: Plates and record albums should be packed on end vertically, rather than placed flat and stacked.

 

Remember the Bare Necessities: Toilet paper, telephone, toiletries, snacks, coffee (and pot), soap, flashlight, screwdriver, pliers, can opener, paper plates, cups, utensils, a couple of pans, paper towels, and cleaning supplies are some of the essentials you may need upon arrival at your new home. Pack a box with these types of items and ask your van foreman to load it last so that it will be unloaded first.

 

Unscrew Bulbs: Remove bulbs before packing your lamps.

 

Help your Pet Relax: Keep your pet calm and away from all the activity on moving day by arranging for a friend to watch him at their house.

 

Take a Break from the Computer: Upon arrival at your new home, let your computer “acclimate” itself to room temperature before plugging it in.

 

Enjoy the Help: Leave the rest to the professionals, sit back and relax, and look forward to the new opportunities, friends and experiences that are part of any move. Be sure to get a good night’s rest before the pickup and delivery days!
