Home sellers getting ready to list a house for sale will want to follow this order of priority: first clean, make maintenance repairs, fresh neutral paint, and then stage.

“While I am a home stager and know how valuable staging is, first and foremost a home for sale must be squeaky clean!” explains Judy Jernigan of House Into Home NC.
Hire a professional, they will see dirt you’ve become blind to that a potential buyer will find off-putting.
“Next, fix any issues like broken windows or dripping faucets. Buyers want to buy a house with everything in good working order, even if needs a little updating” Judy adds.
“Don’t underestimate the power of a fresh coat of paint. One color I go to often in Piedmont Triad homes is Sherwin Williams Kilim Beige SW 6106.”
“Fresh paint can do wonders in making your home as appealing as possible to as many buyers a possible.”
“One of my specialties is occupied home staging, so I love the chance to help people selling their homes use staging to highlight the best features of a property. BUT…”
“If the property isn’t clean and in good-repair first, no amount of staging will be able to hide that.” Judy concludes.
So clean, fix, paint, then stage and your home will be ready to list and ready to sell!
All that said, we must price it right, or none of the above matters.
