Home Staging Mistakes That Can Hurt Your Home’s Value

In the competitive housing market, even a simple mistake can make or break a deal. You might not be able to think about this especially when things are hectic. I have listed below the most common staging mistakes based on my experience.


1. Not taking time to declutter and organize.

A cluttered and disorganized home can make it difficult for potential buyers to envision themselves living in the space.

2. Not taking advantage of natural light.

Maximizing the natural light in your home can make the space appear larger and more inviting.

3. Not making minor repairs.

Even small repairs, such as replacing a broken doorknob or fixing a leaky faucet, can go a long way in helping potential buyers feel secure about their purchase.

4. Using outdated furnishings.

The furnishings in your home should reflect the current trends and styles to help potential buyers imagine themselves living in the space.

5. Not paying attention to color.

Using too much of the same color in a room can make it appear dull and uninviting.

6. Not editing furniture and accessories.

Too many pieces of furniture and accessories can make a space feel crowded and overwhelming.

7. Not paying attention to details.

Paying attention to details, such as ensuring the linens are neatly folded and the pillows are arranged just right, can make a big difference in how buyers perceive the home.

8. Not hiring a professional cleaner.

Having your home professionally cleaned from top to bottom, including windows, before it goes on the market is my personal go-to tip for my sellers.
