Stage your living to attract homebuyers. Living Room’s are often the first space that a homebuyer views when walking through the front door. First impressions are crucial when selling your home. Start with a blank canvas and start removing everything from the area. Position furniture in a way that shows off the living room’s potential. Maximize space by removing un-used furniture and decor. Add tasteful accessories and artwork that are neutral in color and design. Wow the buyer with your newly staged living room.


When staging a home, do you leave the staging items in the home when it sells?

Question : When staging a home, do you leave the staging items in the home when it sells?
I’m getting ready to list my home for sale, and I’m thinking about staging it. Before I buy items for the house (like furniture, decorations, plants, candles, etc.), I wanted to know if these items usually stay with the home when it sells or will I be able to take them with me?   I have already de-cluttered everything, taking down all personal pictures, magnets, etc. I have painted everything neutral and cleaned it up inside and out.

Best answer:

Great question!

Only permanent fixtures are standardly expected to be included with the price of the house. Example: hanging lamps, curtain rods (attached to the walls), built-in furniture, etc. Home furnishings would typically be negotiable.
