Selling a Washington DC Home: Staging Don'ts

Staging allows potential homebuyers to see your home in the best possible light. If you are selling a Washington DC home – and you want to do it quickly, and for the highest amount price possible – your home will need to be staged. And you’ll go a long way in staging your home well, if you avoid these “Don’ts.”

Staging Don’ts:

  • Don’t create theme rooms; keep the decor simple and clean.
  • Don't over-personalize your decor. If you know your house is going on the market in the next few years, be mindful of design choices when you remodel, or you could decrease your pool of buyers.
  • Don’t paint in bold, heavy colors. Potential buyers will be thinking about how much they’ll have to spend to repaint the home, so keep paint colors neutral.
  • Don’t ignore the cleaning; get every surface, carpet, and window treatment squeaky clean.
  • Don’t forget the curb appeal. Take care of the yard; rake leaves, clean up the flower beds, trim the shrubs, sweep the sidewalk and porches.
  • Don’t forget the small repairs. Tighten the hinges on the cabinets, fixed the cracked window pane, fix the lose doorknob, etc.
