clothes, put away some unused or broken toys, and get rid of gear that’s no longer needed. When you’re done staging, take excellent photos of their bedroom as well as the lawn or front yard, to put them with an ad. Repainting is another important step when you decide to sell off your home that has been lived in by small children. If the walls are dirty, nobody will be interested in buying your home. If you have older kids at home, get them involved with the staging process and tell them just how great it would be to move into a new home. Ask them to clean up their own room, and provide them with boxes or cartons to store away things they don’t need. While kids at home can pose a serious threat to your staging efforts, they can also become an inspiration for some people. For example, if you have a children’s playroom or a toys room in the house, you can declutter it and make it neat and tidy to show it off to the visitors. Similarly, children’s study area can be an attractive thing for some buyers who have kids of their own and who would like to buy a place that is child-friendly.
