3 Essential Spring Staging Tips Before Listing Your Home For Sale

As a Lake of the Ozarks homeowner, there are several things that you can do to prepare your home in advance if you're considering listing it for sale this spring. Some of the items that should be addressed aren't always at the top of mind though. So this week, we've decided to compile 3 essential spring staging tips for you to accomplish before listing your home for sale this spring.

Start by Spring Cleaning
Scrub your home until it sparkles – and don't forget the windows, treatments and trim! Pull all furnishings out and clean underneath and behind them. Focus on areas that you typically don't touch when cleaning on a daily basis: baseboards, air registers, corners collecting cobwebs, cabinets and shelves collecting dust, etc. If it's been a hot minute since you last cleaned your carpet, now would be a great time to hire a professional carpet cleaner. Another thing many people forget about is to replace furnace filters and clean out air ducts.

Depersonalize and Declutter
Remove as much clutter as you can, even if you have to store your stuff in storage. Clear off tables, desks, and countertops to show as much surface space as possible. Remove the majority of family photos from walls, shelves, and the fireplace mantle. It may be difficult for potential buyers to picture themselves living in your house if all they see is your family pictures and memorabilia covering the walls. Remove any unnecessary furniture and put it into storage to give your house more living space. Remove unnecessary electronics, extension cords, and power strips.

Spruce Up Your Yard and Home Exterior
The first impression potential buyers see when they pull up to your home is its exterior. Make sure your home's exterior gives off a good first impression by routinely maintaining the landscaping. Trim hedges and mow your lawn. Clean all windows and surfaces. Repaint walls, doors, and trims if needed. Replace old window blinds or drapes, and update the window treatments. Power wash or paint the exterior.

Use these tips to help prep before selling a home at the Lake of the Ozarks. Buyers will be more likely to put in attractive offers, and you'll likely get your home sold more quickly!
