    2.

    Clean Out Clutter

    Get rid of everything and anything you do not use or need. Rent a pod to discard unwanted items or rent local storage if you need extra space for a short timeframe. Buy inexpensive baskets to store clutter and arrange them on shelves as décor. Depersonalize spaces so buyers can envision themselves living in your home.

    Paint is Your Ally

    Sell This House - Staging Tips "Here's one of the best tips we have on Sell This House. Paint is your biggest ally when hiding the flaws of your house. There are countless times when we don't want potential buyers to notice an ugly vent, odd nooks, or less than perfect base boards. We simply paint them to blend in with the walls and no one ever notices."
