If you are selling your home let me share a story with you. Last week I took buyers to a few homes. Here's what happened at one of them:

The family was inside eating dinner. Since they had just sat down to eat, there were dirty dishes on the counter. Two kids were crying because they wanted ice cream. The TV was on one of the news channels with a controversial political debate taking place. It smelled like spaghetti. And worst of all, the husband tried to talk to us as he was walking out of the bathroom.

That experience will stay with me for the rest of my life. They were eager to sell but didn't know how to sell. If that happened to you, would you be eager to buy that piece of real estate? If you were a REALTOR ,would you be eager to take other buyers back to that house? It's an example of sellers who don't have a good REALTOR with a comprehensive home selling strategy.

One of the most valuable things you can get from an experienced REALTOR is, informed advice on selling your home. I have witnessed great staging ideas and I have seen the worst.

An experienced REALTOR can share things like inexpensive tips to improve the odds of selling your home. One of the topics that sellers need to address is staging the home for a showing. Here is a list of great staging ideas for when you have buyers stopping by.

1. Bake Cookies - Seriously, buyers love the smell of cookies. If you're walking through a house and you smell the strong scent of plug-in air freshener, it can smell fake. However, if you're walking through a home smelling cookies your mind connects to your own personal experiences and buyers connect with the home. You can even leave a few on the counter for the buyers and the REALTOR. If it works for Santa Clause why wouldn't it work for buyers? If you are serious about selling your house, you should do this every time possible.

2. Leave a Weekly Chore List onyour Refrigerator - On that list put things like vacum, dust, mop, clean behind the appliances, etc. Don't put things like pull weeds or anything else that looks like an avoidable chore. The goal is to make buyers think that your family has pride in their home and keeps it in good condition. Make it look like you're a cleaning fanatic not just when your selling!

3. De-Clutter Your Closet - This one may be a little more common, but I can't tell you how many times I walk buyers through closets that are stuffed with clothes. It makes even large closets look small and that does not bode well when selling. It also makes you look like an unorganized and messy family. Buyers want to buy from people who take care of their things. Be that person!

4. Leave a Note for the Agent - Okay, this may seem a little cheesy but treat the buyers agents like gold. They are. REALTORS have a huge impact on a buyer's decisions. While the ultimate decision is made by the buyer, REALTORS can sabotage you in hundreds of ways. Leave them a cookie and a thank you note that invites them back.

5. Leave! - If my story above doesn't demonstrate why this is important to not be there then I'm not sure what will. Let people talk about your home behind your back. Buyers like walking through homes and talking about the details. If you're there, they won't have a good experience.

These are just a few ideas. I have written more tips on staging your home for a showing in the past. Staging is just one step in the overall home selling strategy that your REALTOR should go through with you.
