"Paige Martin and the The Houston Properties Team are amazing. They are unbelievably candid. They talked us out of buying over two dozen houses based on issues that we didn't see (although the houses looked gorgeous). They always have your best interests at heart and they're experts in their craft. That's why our family has completed eight transactions with them over the past decade. Paige and the Houston Properties Team are experts that you can trust." - Debi G

Home Staging Tip #1: Add Mirrors

Home Staging Tip #1: Add Mirrors

Home staging is a good investment to help homes sell for more money.

A mirror not only adds some style to a space, its reflective quality can open up a room, making it brighter and seem less cramped (even if it’s tiny).


Home Staging Tip #2: Replace Window Treatments

Home Staging Tip #2: Replace Window Treatments

Ensure windows are cleaned on the inside and out and remove any old or heavy drapery.

If you have old and heavy drapes, toss them for something more modern and breezy.
Choose floor-length curtains and hang them from the ceiling instead of at the top of the window frame.


Home Staging Tip #3: Buy Crisp, White Towels

Home Staging Tip #3: Buy Crisp, White Towels

New, white, crisp towels are an inexpensive way to spruce up a bathroom.

To stage your bathroom, go with monochromatic hues.
Colored towels don’t feel spa-like and they can seem dingy and add heaviness to a space. White towels feel fresh and clean.


Home Staging Tip #4: Upgrade Rugs

Home Staging Tip #4: Upgrade Rugs

You can buy new, clean rugs from Amazon or Target to help provide the right ambiance.

Buy rugs that actually fit your rooms and your furniture.
The right-sized rug in a complementary style to the room will make the space look larger and feel more “pulled together.”


Home Staging Tip #5: De-Personalize

Home Staging Tip #5: De-Personalize

Remove family pictures - you want to allow the buyer to see themselves and their family in your space.

Take out personal photographs and everyone’s clutter.
You want the potential buyer to be able to envision their lives inside the house.


Home Staging Tip #6: Reorganize Bookcases

Home Staging Tip #6: Reorganize Bookcases

Have a minimalistic view - keep shelves free of clutter.

Remove 25 percent of your books entirely, and then rearrange what’s left so that some books are vertical and some are stacked horizontally.

Place a couple of trinkets within the bookcase to function as accents and bookends. This will add character and personality to the room while also lightening up your bookcases.


Home Staging Tip #7: Deep Clean

Home Staging Tip #7: Deep Clean

Contact us for great Houston cleaners or vendors to help stage your home to sell for the most money in the shortest time.

No prospective buyer wants to walk into a house with a dirty bathroom or scuffed-up walls. Take some time to clean every room in your house, but beware of cleaning smells.
