posted on January 23rd, 2012 | filed under: Carlsbad, Loving the Lifestyle, Successful Selling, Uncategorized

1. De-clutter – Everywhere!
Preparing you home for sale is a great time to get “move ready”. Cleaning out drawers, closets – getting rid of anything you do not plan on taking with you (or haven’t used in 2 years!).

2. Clean & Freshen
Dirt and grime is a big turn-off to potential buyers.

3. Bring in a Professional for a Consultation
A professional stager will look at your home through the buyer’s eyes. It is so important to create an emotional appeal…the experience you create in each room is important.

4. Update
This is especially important if your home was built before the 90’s. Put in new plumbing and electrical fixtures, counter tops and hardware. For a nominal investment you will gain interest and even excitement regarding your home.

5. Paint
Using the right paint color is the most inexpensive way to create perceived value, to warm up a room and to create a sense of design or high style.

Jeff DeChamplain is a huge advocate for professionally staging your home. Each home Jeff lists is staged on some level. Staging has been proven to sell a home quicker and for more money than homes that are not staged.

To transform his listings from ordinary to extraordinary, Jeff relies on home stager Tori Prince of Transformed to Sell. Tori has been a valuable member of Jeff’s team for years. Here are a few before and afters so you can see for yourself the difference home staging can make:
