A recent article in The Orlando Sentinel, “Staging Sells Homes,” examines current staging trends and how they affect what you should do to sell quickly.

According to Sandra Rinomato, host of HGTV’s “Property Virgins” show, “Until recently, ‘Staging meant pulling out all the stops — setting the dining table with your best china and crystal, arranging flowers, lighting candles … Now we take the minimalist approach. Basically, you want to strip the house to its bare essentials, depersonalize it, so potential buyers can superimpose themselves and their lifestyle on the house.’”

Keeping that in mind, what can you do to improve your home’s selling appeal? It’s all about making your home look new, move-in-ready and open for new owners.
