Staging Your Home Checklist

  • Remove all clutter from the house.
    • Are countertops free and clear?
    • Have you removed unnecessary furniture throughout the house?
    • Remove the art gallery and coupon collection from the refrigerator.
  • Check the bathrooms.
    • Are the surfaces clean and clear?
    • Are shower curtains and doors hung properly?
    • Is the flooring clean and fresh?
    • Are towels neatly hung?
  • Check the walls.
    • Is paint and wallpaper fresh and clean?
    • Are the walls free from holes?
    • Are there any colors or objects on the walls that need to be removed?
  • Check the floors.
    • Is the carpet clean and free from stains?
    • Are hard surface floors clean and free from stains?
  • Check windows and window coverings.
    • Are all the windows clean?
    • Are draperies and blinds clean?
  • Pet check.
    • Are there any signs that this is a pet's home? Be sure to clean and remove kitty litter, pet toys and bedding.
  • How's the aroma?
    • Try to air out the home prior to showings.
    • If air freshener is necessary, use well before showings as a consideration to those with allergies. (Or for a fast wonderful smell- simmer a pot on the stove with 2 or so tsp. of cinnamon.)
  • Set the mood prior to showings.
    • Open draperies and blinds and turn on every light possible.
    • Turn on the radio to a classical music station, or play a CD of "mood" music, set the volume on low.
    • If you have time, cook a batch of cookies to have the warm, welcoming aroma permeating the home.
