Home Staging Checklist

Preparing your Home to Sell

calgary realtor elizabeth morgan


A comprehensive plan of what needs to be done to your home will be completed in our initial consultation. Many items can be looked after at this time.

I pay close attention to the details; enhance the home’s positives, create flow between rooms, suggest furniture placement and/or storage or rental, target the market for your home and decorate accordingly, suggest paint colors, re-arrange art, and assess the homes current state.


I create a “to do” list and strategies to cope with the clutter of everyday life.
