Okay, okay. We’ve all said it, we want our homes to look like one of those fabulous homes we see on HGTV. Who wouldn’t? I mean, every time I go to a home improvement store I too secretly hope someone with a camera will pop out and tell me I’ve just won a few home remodel.

I know what you are thinking. Lindsey, you’re a realtor. You must live in a made-for-TV home. Wrong. My home is no different than those of my client’s. And when it comes time for me to sell, I too get overwhelmed thinking about all small improvements I need to make to bring home the big bucks.

It’s like they always say, if you can’t beat them, join them. So we’re taking some of HGTV’s top tips on small home staging that will give you a big return.

  1. Upgrade your kitchen. Money spent on new counters and appliances go a long way when buyers compare your home with others they see.
  2. Curb appeal goes a long way. Freshen up your flower beds, cut the grass and give your entrance a good scrub.
  3. Declutter. Buyers love to see your home’s storage space so show it off by taking a majority of items out of closets.

And if you’re like me, I’m always looking for an easy button. When you list your home with The Litton Group, we provide complimentary comprehensive staging services–something you won’t find with those other realtors. We help clients get the best deals on repairs, assist in coordinating installations, and we even help you decide what items can stay (and which have to go). Knowing you’re not alone; knowing you’ve got a team of “HGTV” stagers on your side is just another reason why homes listed with us sell faster and for more money.
