Home prep and staging your home are essential steps in the home selling process. The ultimate goal is to make your home more favorable to buyers. First impressions go a long way in the real estate industry, and a poorly staged property will turn away many homebuyers. The same is true for a home that is need of significant repairs. If you are preparing your home for sale, here are three crucial steps of the home prep process. 

Don’t overspend on staging

Staging is an investment. In most cases, a home seller will need to spend some money to stage their home. However, as stated before, you don’t want to go overboard when prepping your home for sale. While staging is important, you do not want to obsess over minutia details that going to cost you to lose money. 

Only make unnecessary repairs

There is no reason to break the bank on unnecessary repairs. This is where many home sellers go wrong. They think they will recoup all investments made on repairs; however, this is not always the case. A good rule to follow is to repair any known mechanical or structural issues with the home. This will make the home significantly more favorable to buyers and should help your home sell faster. 

Declutter every room of the house

One of the first steps home sellers should be to remove clutter inside of the home. Clutter not only will make your home look messy, but it makes rooms appear smaller in pictures. When it comes to home staging, it is in your best interest to limit the amount of clutter and stick to the essentials. For example, a bedroom should feature a few pieces of furniture (bed, nightstand, bureau) and only a few decorative pieces, like a vase of flowers or a picture or two.
