Whether you are moving to Connecticut or away from the area, the prospect of buying a new home is exciting. Before you can do that, you must sell your old home and get as much money out of it as possible. Something as simple as how you stage your furniture can increase the likelihood that your house will sell. There are a few easy tips from U.S. News that you can utilize when staging your home to sell quickly.

If you still reside in the home, you can do a little staging to each room, but the most common rooms to worry about are the following:

  • Kitchen
  • Bathrooms
  • Master bedroom
  • Living room
  • Any tricky rooms that are hard to decorate

One of the most important things to remember when you are selling your home is that the buyer may not enjoy your sense of style. You want the style and décor to be as generic as possible. Staging professionals encourage neutral colors with small color accents, classic and simple and traditional furniture.

When you are staging your home, make sure to keep hallways, pathways and high traffic areas clear. You can make each room look bigger simply by how you move your furniture and the goal is to highlight how the house flows from room to room. There should be a clear path from doorway to doorway in every room.

Finally, you will want to remove all personal items. Any family pictures, personal paintings and other décor that means something to you, may place a bias in the new buyer’s mind. If they cannot envision their own stuff in your home, they are less likely to buy it.
