I’ve worked with the best in the area, including Chicagoland Home Staging - www.chicagolandhomestaging.com/. I’ve helped stage vacant and occupied homes for sale and they are two very different animals. If you are going to live in your home while it’s for sale, you must realize and remember, once you decide to sell, it isn’t your home anymore-it's a product on the market! It has to compete with every other home for sale in your area. So, the best advice I’ve learned from their team is to open up all your spaces by decluttering, editing out personal items and freshening up everything.
When you’ve made the decision to sell, your home must be transformed into a house for sale. To help with the transformation you should know there is a difference between decorating and staging. This is the hard part and sometimes you should hire a stager rather than DIY. (Click here to contact me on help for staging). You’ll be using your own possessions to stage with and you’ll be staging each room. Consider every possession carefully and decide if it should stay in each room. Buyers need to see a lot of open space, so edit out items that don’t need to be in the room. Think of editing as packing for the move. Once you’ve done it, you’ll ready for the movers!
Do you NEED to hire a stager? No is the short answer, but many times we can help you sell your home faster and for asking price. There are never any guarantees made, but it’s definitely worth the investment!
