How to Stage Your Home for a Successful Open House
If you’re selling a home in Aspen and your REALTOR(R) suggests that you hold an open house, the best thing you can do is stage it to get it ready.
So how do you stage your home for a successful open house?
Here’s what you need to know.

How to Stage Your Home for a Successful Open House

First things first: Clean and declutter your entire home. People who come to your open house will leave no stone unturned, no cabinet unopened, and no light switch unflipped.
Once that’s done, you need to know this big fact: staged homes sell 88 percent faster and for 20 percent more than homes that weren’t staged.
You can hire a professional stager or you can follow these tips:

  • Clear out furniture that makes your space appear cluttered
  • Hang curtain rods higher than normal to make it look like your ceilings are taller
  • Add cozy touches, like throws across your sofa or the bottom of the bed
  • Hang sheer curtains over windows with unattractive views so you let in light without showing buyers what’s outside
  • Swap out personal photos or eclectic art with mirrors, which can improve the lighting in your space and make it appear larger

If you’re not sure what else you can do to stage your home for an open house, talk to your real estate agent. He or she will have plenty of tips that are specific to your home.
