The real estate in Montreal is having its best tome ever as there are many sellers as well as buyers. The seller of Montreal property should see to it that his home is in an up to date condition so that he can get the maximum amount for his property. The term used for keeping the home up to date is called [sidebar item1="wiki|Home_staging"]Home Staging[/sidebar]. The purpose of home staging is to make the house as good as new so that it attracts the maximum price. The whole point of home staging is to provide a neutral look to the buyers of property.
The first golden rule of home staging is to de-clutter (unclutter) . In this case you need to pass on or throw off the things that you no longer use in the house. The things that you would like to keep should be kept in a tidy manner. The tables, chairs, kitchen counters, sofas and beds should not have anything lying in them. Everything should be put behind the closed doors of cupboards and drawers.
The second golden rule that you should remember is to keep your home neutral. Here you need to remove anything of a personal nature that may offend or put off the buyer. For example, you need to remove your family photos, religious symbols and artifacts. Also remove art work of adult nature as it may offend the buyer.
The third golden rule is to deep clean your house. The whole house should be dusted and cleaned entirely. Furniture such as doors and windows should be wiped sparkling clean. There should be no untidy spots on the table or the bed sheets. Everything in the house should look orderly. It is only this way that you can prepare your home for sale for the highest value it can get.
