Staging can be very helpful in highlighting the best aspects of your home. Decluttering and rearranging furniture can make your home look bigger or more airy. In some cases, it can even hide some minor flaws with clever placement of furniture. But there are some things mere staging can’t hide.
Buyers aren’t going to move your furniture around, but they may check under rugs. Cracked tiles are easily noticeable, and if you try to hide them, buyers will think you’re hiding an even bigger problem. Every buyer is going to look at the windows, even if its just to check out the view. Broken or cracked windows are very obvious. Same with torn screens, which are easy to replace. The most important issue to fix is any roof problems. Having a roof over your head is the reason to live in a home. Buyers will expect you to take care of it.
