Are you thinking about putting your lakefront home up for sale, but not sure where to begin? Scared it will take a long time to sell, or that you wont receive the price you are looking for? Consider staging your lake home, i.e., arranging the lake home to peak a buyers interest in the property.

To be really effective, you should look at both the interior and the exterior of your lake home. Here are three tips to get you started with the interior of your lake home:

1. Organize your home. Organizing your home is probably the most important thing you can do. You are planning to move anyway, so why not go ahead and remove the things that you do not need on a daily basis. Remove seasonal clothing, dishes, furniture, and other items that you can live without. This will open the rooms and make them appear larger. These items can be stored in a garage or detached storage building.

2. Organize your closets and cupboards- put like colors together, pants together, skirts together, shirts together etc. Why you ask? Because the closets will appear bigger. An organized closet looks bigger, and you want your closets and cabinets to look as spacious as possible.

3. Create a show model lake home. After you are done packing up your personal belongings, you can hang pictures of boats or other lake pictures in place of your personal photos. You can also place decorative items like boat ores, signs, and plants in corners or shelves. Place some decorated canisters or fruit in some attractive baskets or glass vases in stead of counter top appliances that you don't need.

Another tip that should not be overlooked is to think of yourself as the potential buyer that is seeing your lakefront home for the very first time. If there are things that you would like changed, it is likely that others will feel the same way. Try to make your home look the best.

You may have to make a small investment in staging your home's interior, but you'll recoup your investment when your home sells. By staging your home properly, you'll shorten the period of time your home is on the market and get most if not all of your asking price.
