Staging Your Home For A Quick Sale

How can you make your home stand out during the busiest time of year for real estate? By staging it to sell.

Home staging is preparing a residence for sale in the real estate marketplace. The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling a property more swiftly and for top asking price. Staging techniques focus on improving a property’s appeal by transforming it into a welcoming and attractive home.

First impressions are very important in selling your home. That’s why home staging is so essential to make that first impression a good and lasting one for anyone who enters your home or view it on line. Currently 90% of all real estate is seen on line before potential buyers will step in to any home.

Home staging can reduce a listing’s time on the market by one third to half, and could fetch as much as 6% to 20% more than a non- staged.

According to National Association of Realtors

Most important rooms to be staged:

 Rank of Importance: Room

1 Living Room

2 Kitchen

3 Master Bedroom

4 Dining Room

5 Bathroom

6 Children’s Bedroom

7 Guest Bedroom

Home staging is not a major remodeling project at all. In many cases it involves just rearranging furniture, decluttering, and cleaning.  Priority is space planning.  This is important because you want to show the scale of the room, function of the space, and help the future owner to visualize them self-living there. Remember the goal is to sell the home.

Tips for pet friendly products for your home.

Being a mother of 2 fur babies, a chocolate Labrador name Snickers and a beautiful black cat name Sammy, I have learned how to select interior products that are resistance against pets and daily use.

Flooring: Carpet or hard surface has positive and negative uses for pet owner’s.
Carpet; Positive is soft on your feet, provides warmth and is inexpensive to install. The negatives, they are hair collectors, pet stains and odors are easily noticeable. Use of a good vacuum cleaner and a shampoo carpet deep cleaner will help prolong the carpet wear and tear.

Hardwood floors positive, easy to clean pet hair and dust. They add value to your home. Negative; wood flooring will show scratches from pet claws and pet urine will leave dark spots. Solution to restore wood flooring is striping the floor surface and refinishing them. Urine stains maybe visible after refinishing the floors. Another option is laminate wood flooring a durable and a cost-effective alternative with a resin top cover.

Bamboo is a new alternative because it is the hardest of the hardwood flooring options this makes for a good pet friendly choice. Pet stains and scratches still occur but will not be as noticeable.


Tile flooring; Positive is easy to care for pet owners because it does not scratch easily and pet stains will most likely not stain the tile. Negatives are tile can chip or crack and grout can discolor so make sure a good grout sealer is used to block staining.

There is new pet friendly carpet available on the market so when shopping for flooring asks for these products.

Upholstery seating, as we would like are pets not to jump up on the furniture, they are going to still do it. Microfiber fabric is stain resistance. The material is the tightest weave fabric and has the most thread count, this makes for a durable fabric. Microfibers have improved in the past few years with colors, patterns, and texture. Fabric seating will stain, holds pet odors, and tears. You can only use Febreze for so long.

I have found leather to be the best for material for seating. Positives are it is hair resistance, and easy to clean off muddy paw prints and it does not hold pet smells. Negatives are claws can scratch and over years the leather softens up, and will break down and tears easily. When purchasing a leather sofa make sure it is protective leather which is treated leather and is more scratch resistance.
