Prioritizing "The To Do List" is one of the most challenging tasks most sellers struggle with.



Prioritizing "The To Do List" is one of the most challenging tasks most sellers struggle with.


"Should we paint the kitchen?" "Do the wood floors need to be refinished?" "Does the garage have to be empty?" "What do we do about the kids' rooms?" "Can I leave out our family photos?"


These are just a few of the questions I get at my first staging appointment. Most sellers have created a lengthy list of things they want to do but often times it's the wrong things. That's where I come in and help prioritize. Sellers are usually relieved to see some of their big projects taken off the list. I definitely add some others that are more important but overall it makes for a great plan to move forward and get to the next step - photos.


This photo is from a recent staging appointment. One of the kid's bedrooms was painted this very bold color! The homeowners were doing a lot of painting and had this on their list too. But I told them NOT to paint this room. Their house still went under contract almost immediately despite this fluorescent green room!


So why did I tell them NOT to paint this room? I mean, obviously this very bold color is a big "NO, NO" in any stager's rulebook!


What do you think??
