Staging Your Home?
In order to sell your home in today’s market, it is important that you make it stand out from the others on the market. By simply staging your home you can add instant value, maximize the amount of money you make and get your home sold sooner. Follow a few basic tips for staging your home and you will almost definitely see a return. Creating furnished homes is very, very important to the sales process.
If you painted your walls any extreme colors or stenciled in bedrooms or kids’ rooms, now is the time to grab a bucket of regular, neutral color and give your rooms a little freshening up. Though you may have loved your bright orange accent wall, it may just be an eye sore for potential buyers who may not be able to see past it. Though they could just as easily change it, most buyers don’t want to come into a home and immediately see something that would absolutely have to go. Instead, make them feel as though your home is a clean slate that they can customize for their unique tastes.
Clean up the Clutter
Remove everything from rooms that doesn’t need to be there. If you have kids and there are toys in the family room, remove them and place them in a closet or storage. Excess piles of paper or random items should be cleared away as well. By leaving lots of things out you are giving the impression that your home is smaller than it actually is.
Make a great first impression by cleaning up the front of your house. Apply a new coat of paint to the shutters if necessary and add some colorful plants. Clean off your porch and lay down a welcome mat. Make your house feel like a home from the minute a prospective buyer pulls into the driveway.
There are many ways to stage your home but these basic steps will ensure that people see their potential home rather than feel out of place in someone else’s house.
