Staging your house for sale before you put your house on the market makes your house easier for others to imagine themselves living there.


Your realtor may advise you to make the entry and other rooms of your home look more spacious.


I can help you do that by working with you to organize different areas of your home.

You may also want to paint or have routine maintenance done on your appliances. If so, I take those tasks off your to-do list and arrange these chores for you.

Closets and Cupboards


Make these areas very tidy. Out of season clothes can be packed up out of all the closets– this make the closet look roomier an added bonus is that these clothes will be ready to move. Also, a prospective buyer will be able to picture how he might put his things away.


Cupboards can contain only the necessary items. You, the seller, want these areas to appear as spacious as possible. By staging your house for sale this way you enable the prospective buyer to think there is plenty of storage space in this house.

Attic or Basement Storage Room

Donate, sell or toss any items  stored in these areas and that are not needed or wanted any more.


Group all other items  according to use and stored neatly. For instance, all holiday decorations can be stored together and suitcases can be neatly placed together. This enables the prospective buyer to see the available storage space.


Make your garage as clean and tidy as you can. In staging your house for sale, it’s important for a potential buyer to imagine driving their car into the garage.


Certain areas of the garage can be designated as storage for specific items such as: lawn and garden maintenance, car maintenance, and sports equipment.

Clutter Control

Remove all miscellaneous clutter from the home. Counter tops and table tops can be as clean – cleared off – as possible – without looking bare. This will allow a prospective buyer to picture himself and his items in your house. I would propose packing away miscellaneous items and storing them neatly in the attic or basement storage area.


If you are moving from a large home to a smaller home – whether it is an apartment, condo, or house – you have many decisions to make. Some of them will be difficult.

Which pieces of furniture do you take with you? What do you do with the furniture you can no longer use?  Do you sell it? Donate it? Do you have relatives who would like some of these pieces? Call me, I can help you figure this out.
