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
