Brian and I sold our house in 24 hours.
I bet you would love to sell your Plano home in record time as well.
Am I right?
And then it happened again . . .
Our neighbors here in Plano sold their house in approximately 3 weeks.
Yes, you read that right.
Here’s the kicker ⤵️
Its Winter and this isn’t even the most popular time of year to sell a house.
I mean, things are still hot in the real estate world here in the metroplex but not the same as they were just 2 years ago.
Those stats above are record time.
Let me explain how it happened.
We got serious about selling our home.
Because we wanted to quickly and easily move into our next house.
And you know what we did ➡️ we staged our homes.
We have 2 GIANT dogs at home, work from home, clearly we live there too and our home, even without children, gets put to good use. The bones of the home were great but we desperately needed a fresh spin on it from someone who was an expert in doing this.
Home Staging in Plano
Home staging is effective because it emphasizes a property’s strengths and minimizes its weak points. It allows your home to be shown at its maximum potential.
During the home sale process, its essential to present a well-cared for home to give that amazing first impression.
Just so you know . .
According to a recent staging survey by the National Association of Realtors, the most common rooms that are staged include the living room, kitchen, master bedroom and dining room.
And those happen to be our most lived in rooms too . .
Focus your efforts on these spaces before moving on to the laundry room or other corners of your home.
9 Tips for Home Staging in Plano
- Set your table with dishes, cloth napkins and even a centerpiece, like fresh flowers.
- Drape throw blankets and pillows on couches, chairs, and beds. Make the space feel inviting and cozy.
- Find a hiding place for all of those pet items. Yep, hide the dog dish.
- Add lamps to nightstands and end tables.
- Minimize items and tzcotchkes on bookshelves. No one needs to see your extensive Hummel or Precious Moments Collection.
- Make sure your house is sparkling clean.
- Update your shower liners and make sure your shower curtains are fresh.
- Make sure the hand towels in the bathroom and kitchen are hanging nicely and are super fresh as well.
We’ve all heard that staging a home will help you sell faster.
And although living here in Plano I’ve seen things move so quickly, its now beginning to slow down.
These days, home staging is essential for the seller.

When we sold our previous home, Brian and I had all of our systems in place.
Especially important if you work full time, have kids, have dogs or any combination of the above.
Systems are key in everything we do and that means we outsource what we can.
