Home staging mistakes to avoid

1. Over-improving your property in relation to the area where it is located. If your home is in an area with mostly three-bedroom homes, do not get rid of one of those bedrooms and turn it into something that a new buyer might not want. Stay within the limits of your area.

2. Personalizing a property to the point that it limits the potential of what can be done to it in the future.

3. Trying to guess what the market and potential buyers might want. Most home improvements and renovations should be done for your personal use and enjoyment, not for resale. Make your house exterior and interior design comfortable, functional and modern, creating a universal appeal, because it is hard to anticipate what potential buyers will be looking for and want.
