8 Great Homes Staging Tips

8 Great Homes Staging Tips

When selling a home, it’s important to set the perfect “stage” for potential buyers. If hiring a professional isn’t in the budget, here are some tips on how to prep for the market:

1. Declutter
You want buyers to focus on things like your home’s lovely wood floors, not the commemorative spoon collection. Box it, sell it or gift it. Clear counter tops in the kitchen and bathroom and minimize the number of items on shelves.

2. Clear out the closet

For some buyers, closet space can make or break a sale. The fewer the items within, the larger the closet will appear.

3. Pack away the personal

Store family photos, kids’ art projects and anything else that may distract buyers from envisioning themselves living in your home.

4. Scrub and scrub again

Clean everything, from tile grout to windowpanes. You want your home to sparkle and shine when the spotlight’s on.

5. Scrub and scrub again – outside

Don’t forget your home’s exterior. After all, your porch will make the first impression on buyers. A few hours with a pressure washer, easily rented from a home improvement store, can make a world of difference.

6. Freshen up the paint job

A fresh, neutral coat of paint is a relatively inexpensive way to boost your home’s allure.

7. Focus on lighting

A well-lit room not only feels bigger, it helps people to feel more energized and improves their mood. Don’t forget to replace light bulbs and add lamps in rooms with limited natural lighting.

8. Take a deep breath

If you inhale anything other than clean, fresh air, deodorize before showings with a mildly scented diffuser or candle.

Make sure you’ll have a steady stream of prospective buyers to appreciate the home you’re selling – and all your hard prep work. Contact us for more tips on how to make the homebuying and selling process go smooth.
