Staging Tips


Home Staging Tips

StreetCity REALTORS® have home marketing skills and sales experience that can expertly guide you through the process of staging your home.
Paint touch-ups and clean carpets and floors
Oil and squeaky hinges, tighten doorknobs and fix dripping or leaking faucets. Check that all light fixtures have working bulbs.
Ensure your lawns, gardens, decks, and outdoor spaces are clean and looking their best. An organized and tidy garage is important, too.
To promote a feeling of spaciousness in your home, store unnedded items and furniture and remove any clutter from hallways and stairs.
Consider a pre-listing professional home inspection that will give you an unbiased report on the condition of your home and how it might affect your sale.
Look at your home through a buyer's eyes

We recommend that you:

Create an inviting entryway from the outside of your front door to the inside hallway or foyer.

Keep windows open to let fresh air in, or light candles that are appealing in scent. Baking cookies before a showing is a good way of having your home smell warm and welcoming.

Keep your home bright by opening all window coverings and turning on lights.

Streamline the furniture in rooms to help rooms appear as large and spacious as possible.

If possible, neutralize your home décor to be as universally appealing as it can be. By painting uniquely coloured walls and removing excess personal items like family photos and heirlooms your potential buyers will be more easily able to imagine living there themselves.

Artfully place fresh flowers and plants in various rooms to add colour and a sense of vibrancy to your home.

Prepare to sell your home


Let a StreetCity REALTOR® expertly guide you through the important tasks involved in preparing to list your home for sale. I provide you with a road map that simplifies the process and that will help you focus on what matters to ensure you successfully sell your home.



Possibly the most important area of the home to get right, your kitchen should be organized so that its features and conveniences are shown in the best light. Clear clutter and unnecessary items from all workspaces and counters, and make sure your appliances and sink(s) are spotless and shiny.



Not much needs to be said about the appeal of a clean and tidy bathroom. Make sure the sink, tub, shower, and toilet are clean and fresh. Attend to any off colour grouting or tile and enhance with clean, fluffy towels and tidy amenities.



Moving is a great time to declutter. You want your home to show that it has easy-breezy storage space and that means your closets have to be streamlined and neat. If your closets are stuffed to the brim, potential buyers will feel your home doesn’t have enough storage space.
