When presenting your house for sale to potential buyers, you must be willing to de-personalize for good Austin home staging! That means all personal items must be removed from view. These items range from family photos to bathroom toiletries. The more you are willing to de-personalize, the better your chances will be of attracting a buyer.
Wow! So, you may be wondering: How am I going to live in my house without these items? Obviously, collections & photos can be packed away and safely stored until you move to your new home. Kitchen knives and bathroom items are probably something you can’t live without day-to-day while your house is for sale. For successful Austin home staging, the solution is to keep these items hidden from view in drawers or cabinets. Shower items can be placed in a plastic bucket, which you can bring out for use and stow away in a cabinet when done. That way, whenever your house is shown, even if the buyer’s agent gives little notice, your house is always at its best.
