Ideally you should have a week or 2 available before you list your property in order to stage it and make it look best to show.
If you need to get it on the market in a couple of days here are some things you can do:
-Open the curtains, even at night. This will make each room seem brighter and more spacious.
-Put away knick-knacks and other personal items to reduce clutter on shelves and countertops.
-Clear countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms. Even put the toaster oven out of sight.
-Make sure lighting throughout the house is bright and comfortable. If an area is darker, plug in a lamp.
-Clear away as much as you can in the foyer. Make this space look open, uncluttered and welcoming.
-Move cars out of driveway. Give the buyer a convenient place to park.
-Make beds . Fluff pillows on sofas.
-Clear away as many items as possible from the closet floors - such as shoes.
-Open a window and air out the kitchen, especially if you just finished cooking.
-Make sure your pet is out for a walk if possible. Not everyone loves pets.
These staging tips take only a few minutes each but can make a big difference in the impression your home makes on a buyer.
