When you list your home, you'll be taking pictures, marketing your property online, and welcoming buyers in for showings. If you want to stand out —and maybe even get a higher closing price—then your home needs to look its best. That's where staging comes in! From polishing up your landscaping to depersonalizing your decor, use these helpful staging tips to leave a lasting impression on buyers.
Make the Front Porch Welcoming
The next step before buyers walk through your door? The front porch. Make this area a warm introduction to the rest of the house by dusting off any outdoor furniture, replacing your welcome mat with a fresh one, and putting out a few potted plants and flowers to add a pop of color.
Cleaning & Repairs
Clear Out the Clutter
Cluttered houses are stressful—not just for you, but also for the buyers. Get ahead of your packing, and take the time to work through each room in your home, getting rid of things you don't need and taking out the extra furniture and decorations.
Clean, Clean & CLEAN!
You may not notice those smudges on your fridge or the dust bunnies in the corner...but buyers certainly will. Your home selling cleaning should be as thorough as the best spring cleaning, so break out some rubber gloves and put some serious elbow grease into every room.
Create Balance with Furniture
Furniture can say a lot about a room. If you stuff your room with furniture, it's going to feel uncomfortably crowded, and conversely if there are only a few pieces of furniture in the room, it'll feel a little awkward and lonely. Take some time to think about what mood you want your furniture to convey, and arrange it intentionally.
The Final Details
Increase Your Lighting
Throw open the shades, and let that sunshine in! Natural lighting is not only a mood-booster, but it'll also make your space feel larger. If the weather isn't cooperating, consider swapping out your light bulbs for ones with warmer wattage.
