Trying to sell your home? No luck so far? Staging your place for photos and for open houses is the best way to get bids. How do you stage your home? Many realtors offer staging services, but you can also easily do it your self. Keep in mind, staging is easier if you aren’t living in it, but can still be done.

How to Stage your Home


Store away everything that clutters your space. Potential home buyers want to see open spaces. Do not throw anything away, but store it with a Self Storage Company such as North Shore Mini Storage. Keep only the big items, couches, tables, appliances.

Curb Appeal

First impressions are everything. Power wash the driveway, gutters, house siding. Mow the lawn and add some outdoor plants. You want people driving by to be able to imagine themselves living there. No one wants to live in “that” house on the block.

Party Stage

You could try staging your house for open viewing by pretending to set it up for a big dinner party. Get out the wine glasses and fancy napkins, to help potential buyers imagine themselves throwing a party.

Hide Memories

Remove personal photos and other memories that do not help the value of your house. Remove these personal effects, it allows people to imagine their own personal items inside the house. Clearing the living space of these items helps home buyers see the home as their home.


Shouldn’t need to be said, but clean the home. Make sure every nook and cranny is dusted and cleaned. Nothing turns off potential buyers like a dirty home.

That’s it! We hope that this guide will help you in your home selling efforts. Looking to store some items when staging? Call us today for great rates on self storage units.
