Our recent Good Question about staging got us thinking. So here are our Top 10 tips for Do-It-Yourself staging: • Remember that the key is to depersonalize so that prospective buyers can visualize themselves living in your home -- so remove photos and personal items • Seriously de-clutter (consider putting things in storage) • Add fresh flowers • Clean really, really, really well (including your windows, carpets, and ceiling fans) • Be tough about odors (in our Good Question, Victoria suggests using lavender and rosemary) • Use new or very clean linens, towels, shower curtain • Remove (or at least hide) the pet beds, cat box, pet toys • Take out your garbage • Consider curb appeal -- plant or pot new flowers and plants • Watch Sell This House on A&E and Designed to Sell on HGTV What have we forgotten?
