Home Staging

Home buying is an emotional process, and getting people to feel attached to your home helps bring you more money on the sale. That first impression on prospective buyers should be a lasting and positive one.

Home buyers will be in a home for three to four minutes. You want to make those moments memorable and profitable. You don’t need to be a decorator to stage a home. Check out leading department and home furnishing stores to see what colors they are using and copy them. Bringing in trendy colors immediately modernizes any home, as will fresh linens in the bedroom and bathroom.

  • Think clean and open spaces, clear off all surfaces and keep only a few decorative accessories.
  • Take a tour of your home and give it a critical look. Get picky! Make a list of things you’d like to improve.
  • Keep your place smelling clean, fresh, and new by removing smoking, pets and cooking orders.
  • Remove all personal items, photographs, diplomas, and certificates.
  • Let the home buyers see rooms and return rooms to their original state. A dining room should be  a dining room.
  • Clean your carpets and touch up the paint. Keep out only a few essentials to give your home generic appeal–throw pillows, candles, and fresh cut flowers are great!
  • Clear off the counter tops in your kitchen and bathrooms. Bring in new towels and finish the look with a vase of fresh cut flowers and candles.

staging your home tips

A real estate slump is a real drag, especially if you’re trying to sell your abode. So stage your pad to beat out the competition and draw in more prospective buyers. Most buyers have a hard time looking past pink walls and green shag carpet, so do the legwork for them and present their “new home” on a silver platter. If done smartly, the money spent staging will be made up tenfold in the house sale — and you keep all the hot accessories for yourself afterwards.
