House Staging for Dummies

These rules are certainly not exhaustive, but they were inspired from a recent marathon house-hunting day.

Rule #1:

If it’s April, then it’s probably a good idea to switch your wreath out.

Rule #2:

If it’s April, then it’s probably equally a good idea to switch out the Christmas table setting for something a little more…not Christmas.

Rule #3:

Tuck cords away neatly, instead of making it look like you don’t want someone to buy your house.

Rule #4:

If you must have your clothes hanging to dry, hide them away in a closet, not out in the middle of the hallway.  And for crying out loud, put your underwear through the dryer – do they really need to line dry?  They’re cotton, dude.

Rule #5:

Get rid of your cats.  Sorry cat-lovers, but it’s true.  Those cats will cost you.  We walked into this one house a few weeks ago that I wanted to turn around immediately when we opened the door.  The house appeared clean, but non-cat owners can smell it right away.

House hunting news soon to come!  I’m very excited about what’s on the horizon.

    1. I love those types of shows, too! I was addicted to them for a while. Evidently the people that own that house aren't fans of HGTV - haha.
