Staging Mistakes to Avoid When Selling Your Home
With such a competitive housing market, staging is a critical step in the home selling process. Not only does it make your home stand out in listing photos, but it also helps it appeal to a wide range of potential buyers. A well-staged home will mask years of wear and tear, and can help it sell faster and for more money.
However, the simplest mistakes can be deal-breaking. Which is why we asked home staging and design experts to share some of the biggest staging mistakes they’ve encountered that can turn potential buyers off.
- Starting without a plan
One of the biggest mistakes homeowners can make is not working with a professional stager to create a plan for success when preparing their homes for sale. Stagers look at the home in a holistic way and address potential items that would deter a buyer from moving forward.

- Not creating a space buyers can visualize themselves in
When staging a home you have to make sure that you create a space potential homebuyers can visualize themselves in. Don’t leave too many personal photographs or specific items that are religious, or age-specific. This can alienate potential buyers.
