Thenumbers don't lie; often well-stagedhomes cansee faster sales and higher offers than their clutteredcounterparts. The key is getting an early start on the process.By beginning the monumental task of clearing the clutter anddoing a pre-pack now, you can reduce the stress of preparing forshowings and make it easier to move when your home sells.

Trythese five staging and organizing tips to help you reach a fastersale.

PurgeFrom Top to Bottom -- Do a proper sort and purge,getting rid of outdated clothing, duplicate items and rarely usedgadgets. To keep this task from turning into a source of seriousfrustration, tackle one room (or even one drawer) at a time.

PackUp Everything but the Essentials -- Start pre-packingyour home, storing non-essentials or out-of-season gear in thegarage or off-site. The idea is to give potential buyers a senseof space, which can't be done if your home is overloaded withclutter.

FixGlaring Problems -- Removeout-of-style wallpaper, replace broken light fixtures, updatecabinet and drawer pulls, and refresh dated windowtreatments. Simplefixes like these canmake your home stand out from the competition.

Depersonalize-- Remove family pictures and personal collections, andreplace them with neutral artwork and simple accessories. Theidea is to give potential buyers a neutral canvas so they canimagine their belongings in your home.

Gofor Polished -- Researchthe latest design trends and stageyour house tomatch. Professional stagers recommend tailoring the design styleto your target demographic. For example, if you're in a familyneighborhood, style the bedrooms for children, even if none livein your home.
