Home staging is the key to getting the best price for your home. You can boost the value of your home by making your decor neutral. This means removing all of the knickknacks you have around the house, it means getting rid of family photos and it means removing any quirky furnishings or paintings.

The key to home staging is to create a place that the potential buyer can visualise themselves living in, this means removing all traces of you and your family from the home. It means you need to make it appeal to as wide an audience as possible.

You should declutter your home, get rid of the majority of your personal belongings, the less stuff you have in the house the better others will be able to envision themselves in there.

If your furniture is unique or old you could look at hiring some for the duration, choose contemporary styles in neutral colours—brown, black, blue, cream, khaki—avoid patterns and loud colours.

If you are not sure about what to do then you could employ a home staging expert, they will have furnishings and art on hand to help you increase the appeal of your home.
