Staging your home gives you the opportunity to put your best foot forward, highlighting your home’s best features. Professional home staging services range in cost, starting around $550, but your Howard Hanna agent can give you the same type of advice as part of their one-stop shopping services! These minimal cost tips can increase the value of your home by ultimately adding to the selling price. When staging your home: • Shine with a bit of bling: Neutralize most walls with fresh paint and then add a touch of color to the room with a picture or a bit of seasonal decor for an engaging visual element. • De-clutter/de-personalize: You want buyers to see themselves in your home. Try your best to remove personal items from view. As a bonus, these items will already be packed up on moving day. • Clean, clean, clean! A clean home is much more appealing to buyers. Dust the light fixtures, vacuum the carpets, polish the hardwood floors and clean those countertops, putting all small appliances out of sight (except maybe the all-important coffee pot!)  Continued on page 38
