Redfin: How to Stage Your Home While Still Living There

Having your house showing ready doesn’t mean it needs to be uncomfortable.

Trying to sell a home that you’re still living in can create a set of challenges. But that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Redfin explains what homeowners can do to keep their homes staged for showings while still living in it themselves.

White Glove Treatment

Deep cleaning your home before putting it on the market is essential if you want to sell. Potential buyers notice both small and large messes, which means that hiring a cleaning service may be necessary.
