If you are selling your home, one of the mostimportant things you can do is to "stage" it during the showingprocess. Staging is so important in fact, that it is a profession all on it'sown. You can certainly call a professional home stager but there are manythings you can do yourself to boost the appeal of your home. For starters, curbappeal. Start outside with things like landscaping, power washing, and freshpaint. Draw them in from the outside first. Then, once the showings startflowing in, attack the clutter. Go through all of your furnishings and randomitems sitting throughout the house. Make sure closets are cleaned out andorganized, too. Don't forget, people will be looking at every nook and crannyof your home. Clean those areas you've been neglecting and give a coat of freshpaint to any marks on the walls. Repair or replace any light fixtures or doorknobs you've been meaning to get to but just haven't had the time. Clean fromtop to bottom as if your in laws were coming for a visit. Floors, bathrooms,kitchen, vacuum- the whole shabang. After you've got everything spruced up,light a candle or bake some cookies. Adding a personal "homey" feelwill help the potential buyers to envision themselves in your home as if itwere already theirs.
