There are a number of things you can do to help ensure you receive the best offer when you’re ready to sell your home and “staging” your home is one of them.
What’s “home staging”?
The purpose of home staging is to present your home in the best possible light.
This can be done by using your existing furniture in new ways, swapping outdated pieces for show-ready ones, and/or decluttering your home’s outside area in order to focus buyers’ attention on your home’s features instead of any flaws it might have.
It’s important to ensure your home’s value comes out as high as possible in an appraisal. After all, most of the offers you’ll receive require the buyer to get financing through a mortgage lender.
Essentially, the higher the appraised value of your home, the more seamless the home selling process will be.
Taking the time to prepare your home for an appraisal is your best chance of increasing its appraised value. Here are nine tips to help.
