Essential Staging Tips For North Texas Home Sellers

At Team Nelson, we’re the Flower Mound real estate professionals who want to make selling your home as easy as possible. Whether you already have, or are planning to put your home on the market in the near future, we know that “staging” (making your home its most appealing) can make all of the difference in how quickly you sell your home. Here are some of our top staging tips for North Texas home sellers – we suggest you implement as many as possible for successful selling:


  • Clear the clutter. A neat, organized appearance and minimal clutter is attractive to home buyers. Clear off table and countertops, put away appliances for the time being.
  • Choose sophisticated, neutral colors when possible. While color is beautiful, neutral colors are best when showing your home. Choose soft shades of beige, tan, grays and other colors that aren’t “loud.”
  • Create a master bedroom that’s gender-neutral. Try to stay away from a room that’s too much on the feminine or masculine side. Don’t overdo it with floral arrangements, lacy curtains – but don’t go too far to the masculine side, either.
  • Eliminate pet odors. If you have a dog or cat that lives indoors, see if a friend or family member will keep your pet for a while, and do everything possible to get rid of any lingering pet odors. Shampoo the carpets, remove litter boxes, etc.
  • Highlight how “awkward” areas can increase space. Show off those areas that might otherwise go unused, such as areas under staircases or in an alcove. Built-in shelving displaying plants, a small work station, a bulletin board – be creative.
  • Stage the outdoors and boost curb appeal. The exterior of your home is just as important as the interior – after all, it’s what people see first! Clean up your yard, edge the driveway and walkways, plant seasonal flowers or shrubs. Don’t forget the front porch, patio and/or deck! Spruce these areas up and make them inviting.
  • Get it cleaner than it’s been in years. The usual housecleaning – mopping, vacuuming, dusting – won’t get it done when you’re trying to sell your home. Go the extra mile to ensure your home sparkles. Clean windows, scrub grout, even consider hiring a professional cleaning service if you really don’t have time or don’t want to get down to the nitty-gritty.

While it takes a little extra effort, staging your home is certainly worth it – and your home will likely sell in half the time!
