Getting ready to sell your Pittsburgh condo? Then it's time to start staging! Staging is one of the most important parts of the home-selling process. After all, first impressions mean everything in the real estate world. When it comes to selling your home, you want buyers to be impressed the moment they walk through the front door. Here's how you can achieve just that in the Pittsburgh real estate market.

Cleaning & Repairs

Clear Out the Clutter

Nobody likes a cluttered house! So do yourself a favor and start paring down some of your... stuff. Whether you donate it, host a yard sale, or even just pack it away in storage, removing unnecessary items can help make your home seem larger and cleaner.

Finish Maintenance Projects

Nothing's more intimidating to a buyer than walking into a home full of unfinished projects or in need of a lot of maintenance or repairs. Take some time to finish any ongoing projects, update any old paint or flooring, and fix up any pesky maintenance issues (leaky faucets, running toilets, squeaky floorboards, missing shingles, etc).

Clean, Clean & CLEAN!

You don't want to lose out on a good sale because of a few dust bunnies or grungy grout. Take some time to really make your home sparkle, from top to bottom. Don't forget windows, corners, behind furniture, and all the nooks and crannies in your bathrooms.

Interior Decor

Depersonalize Your Decor

You might love your sense of style, but that doesn't mean every buyer is going to. Decorating your home with simple and neutral colors and decoration leaves room for potential buyer to envision their own decor or belongings in your home.

Create Balance with Furniture

Furniture can say a lot about a room. Too much furniture makes a room seem crowded. Couches arranged facing each other can seem cozy and conversational. A bedroom with a desk or craft table can suddenly be a new world of possibilities. What stories can your furniture tell about your home?

The Final Details

Increase Your Lighting

Make your home bright and welcoming by letting in the light, especially the sunshine! Open windows (if the weather is nice) and blinds to welcome in the sunshine and show off your views. Still a little dark? Don't be afraid to turn on some ambient lighting.

Bring the Outdoors In

Being careful to keep your decor neutral, bring a little freshness and natural beauty inside with some fresh potted plants, clipped flowers, or fall branches.

Coming up on a special holiday or time of year? Take advantage of seasonal decor, like warm fall scents, wintery pine branches, or springtime pastels.
