Cleaning your home before staging to sell is one of the most time-consuming tasks. Not sure if you need to clean or stage your home?
Considering whether you need to stage & clean your home?
Let’s talk about all of the benefits waiting for you! There’s a lot more to it than most people realize.
Your home’s first impression is the most important thing
While price, location, schools and floor plan are critical factors to effectively selling your home, you certainly shouldn’t overlook cleaning AND staging your home.
Having your home professionally cleaned helps remove details about the home that are unattractive, yet a part of daily life (someone else’s, in the eyes of the buyer). From ground-in dust on baseboards to giving your fans and light fixtures a thorough cleaning, it adds up. Having your home professionally cleaned helps remove the “lived-in” feel and promotes the hominess of your house instead, for a potential buyer to see how easily they can settle in and enjoy it. A clean house is a presentable and attractive house.
Staging your home is also much more critical than most people think. It involves a professional coming into your space and making the most out of what you have available: your square footage, your architecture, your natural light, etc. They use furniture, light, and careful interior design tactics (such as visual and actual decluttering) to help your home look its absolute best for a buyer that has never seen it before and yet has high expectations.
Cleaning and staging can sell a home
It seems so strange that the combination of a deep clean and staging can sell your home, but it really can. Having a clean and effectively staged home can sell a home. It gives potential buyers the right first impression that is carefully crafted and guided by the cleaning and staging process. So, it matters more than most realize.
The other detail is that professional cleaners will get the tiny bits most people don’t think about. Cleaning window sills, microwave, range hoods, the back of the top shelf in the spare room closet, refreshing the ground in the corner of your master bathroom flooring, etc.
Do I need professional cleaning to sell my home?
Some will try to do a deep cleaning of their home to save money. While this is admirable, it’s also a lot of work, yet another thing to add to your already busy to-do list. Hiring professional cleaners to deep clean your home costs less than you’d think, and it saves you all of the irritation and stress of actually, well, deep cleaning your home.
The other facet is that professional cleaners are trained to do a top-notch job in less time than it would take you to do the same task. Plus, when you clean your own home, you get distracted by one thing or another. Ever take one item from one room to another, yet to find something that needs to go to the bathroom and while there you see something else that needs to go to the kitchen and so on and so on. Well, that won’t happen to your cleaning crew, it’s not personal, they have a job to do with structure. So, why not hire the pros for a great job in less time and stress-free?
There’s a lot to think about with selling your home, but cleaning and staging should be essential for hiring out. It’ll do a lot of good for your home’s salability, and it’ll be a nice feature for you to enjoy, too, when it comes to helping your home look and feel its best!
