I was taught very early on in my real estate career that what buyers look for when they first enter a home is light and space. This is what your real estate agent or staging professional is aiming to achieve when they “stage” your home. Making a home appear more spacious can only benefit the homeowner, whether the house is on the market or not.

A great place to start is by cleaning up the clutter. We get so used to the things in our home that we tend not to see them. For example, you may not notice that your refrigerator is filled with pictures and papers, but others well. Remove them. It is important that buyers see your appliances, counters, etc, because it is important to them. Less clutter creates a more welcome, friendly and stress-free environment.
