I wanted to share some simple ‘stage house’ tricks that you can use in your home office. This is a new addition to our popular series ‘How to Sell House Fast!‘ You can see in the ‘before’ photo below, that our office has quite a bit of clutter, damaged floors, and dust.
The arrows below point to all the clutter: too much stuff on the bulletin board, too many devices on the desk, extra computers on the floor, stacks of magazines, overflowing in-box, and a massive cluster of cords under the desk.
The most important rule for staging an office, is to remove ALL of the visual clutter. Potential buyers must be able to picture themselves working in a calm and organized environment. Once the clutter was put away, we rerouted and hid all of the cords and repaired the damaged floors under the office chairs (see How to Repair a Wood Floor). Finally we gave the office a good clean. Now it looks like a comfortable and relaxing place to work!
Staging your house to appeal to most buyers will give you the best chance to sell your house fast, and for top dollar! Don’t forget to ‘pin’ this post so you have ideas to stage your house when it is time to sell.
