The most qualified buyers are often those on a short trip to an area before a corporate move, who must find a house quickly during that trip. If your home isn’t available to show, the agent will just move on to another house.

Setting the right stage for selling a home is a crucial aspect of a fast sale. “If your home is not ready for a showing, whether because the yard is in disarray, the house is cluttered or because you have not made necessary repairs, the once-potential buyer will likely move on to the next house for sale, leaving yours to languish on the market,” said O’Shaughnessy, broker associate at Kentwood City Properties.

To ensure a quick sale for the seller, O’Shaughnessy shares the following three essential staging tips:

No. 1: Maintain curb appeal. “The outside of the house is just as important as the inside, as it is the first thing a prospective buyer will see,” said O’Shaughnessy. “An overgrown, disheveled front yard might inspire a potential buyer to keep driving. When showing your house, always keep the lawn and bushes manicured and plant flowers, keeping in mind that yellow flowers stimulate buying impulses.”

No. 2: Clean the clutter. “The most inexpensive thing you can do to make your home ready to show is to clean up the clutter and show lots of usable space,” noted O’Shaughnessy. “For example, if you tend to keep small appliances and pots on the countertops, put them away so people can see the greatest amount of available counter space.”

No. 3: Make the home easily accessible for showings. Buyers, especially those ready to make an offer, want to see the home when it is convenient for them. “The most qualified buyers are often those on a short trip to an area before a corporate move, who must find a house quickly during that trip. If your home isn’t available to show, the agent will just move on to another house,” concluded O’Shaughnessy.
