A recent survey from the National Association of Realtors® revealed that 77 percent of buyers’ agents said staging a home makes it easier for potential buyers to visual it as their own. That’s why here at Breakthrough Broker, we believe staging is not to be overlooked! Here are our top tips.
Dress up your yard. First impressions count, and the first one your home gives comes from the exterior. Mow the lawn, clean up shrubbery, rake any leaves, clean the walkway and driveway, plant in-season flowers, and pull up any unsightly weeds.
Reduce personal items. Make it easier for buyers to imagine themselves making your house their home by removing personal photos and knick-knacks from shelves, walls, and counters. Instead replace them with clean, simple décor, such as abstract paintings, nature images, vases, plants, and more.
Organize your storage areas. Storage is a huge selling point. Tidy up and clear out the accessible closets and cupboards in the home and make sure to point them out during an open house or showing.
Appeal to the senses. Consider ways you can appeal to potential homebuyers’ other senses. During a viewing or open house, bake some fresh cookies or burn delicious smelling candles and play light, relaxing music in the background.
Consider turning to an expert. With their knowledge of current trends and great eye for design, professionally certified stagers can transform a home in a variety of ways and have a keen sense of what homebuyers want and expect in a home. Investing in hiring a pro may pay off in dividends.

"Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $250K in Fruita, CO.
When I first approached Cindy about finding a house to buy she really listened to what was important to me. Cindy took a genuine interest in what I had to say and how I felt about the kind of home I was looking forward to calling home. She wasted no time setting me on the right track in find that home. She even led me to a finance officer that made getting a loan a no hassle experience. When looking at the homes that I was considering she made sure she was prepared for any questions I might have about the house. She even went out of her way to find out if there was anything negative things about the house I was thinking about buying. I thought this was an admirable quality because it was my interest at the forefront not hers. Needs to say we did find the home that I am very excited to call home. I want everyone to know that Cindy Guzman cares and works very hard in getting the results that her clients are looking for. She made herself always available to me when I had questions. When it came time to look at the houses that I was interested in she made time to accommodate my schedule. I would highly recommend Cindy Guzman is the one you want to find that place that you would be proud to call home!! "
