7 Tips to Stage Your Home This Summer

Mulching around the Bushes

It’s almost summer and if you are thinking of putting your home on the market, here are seven tips for getting it staged to sell during this warm time of year:

Mow the Lawn and Trim Hedges
Keep the grass short and tidy. Edge sidewalks bordering the patio or driveway. Bushes should be trimmed back so windows are not blocked. House numbers need to visible.

Front Porch
Make the front porch inviting. The welcome mat should be new looking. Fresh flower pots look nice and add color. There should be no clutter on the front porch. Make sure the porch light works. How does the front door look? A fresh coat of paint can work wonders.

Windows
Wash the windows (and screens) until they are squeaky clean.

All Hands on Deck
Outdoor living spaces (such as decks and patios) should be emphasized and staged for outdoor living and entertaining. Furniture, cushions and pillows need to be clean.

The Jungle Jim
If you have a playset make sure it is clean and in good-working order.

Pool
If you own a pool, make sure it is clear of debris. Stage it to look like a relaxing oasis.

Garden
Seasonal flowers planted in the yard will add color and appeal. Fresh mulch makes a yard look amazing.
