We’ve put together some of the best staging tips to help you sell fast!
Hide The Clutter & Personal Items.
Your intention is to make your house look like a “home”, but people are not interested in seeing your laundry in the washer. Also, potential buyers can feel like they are intruding your space if you have too many personal items laying around. You want them to feel like the home could be theirs immediately when they walk through the door.
Limit photographs and other personal items like backpacks, paperwork, and purses, and instead put out some books, flowers, or other interesting items. You want them to feel comfortable, as if it were somewhere they could see themselves living.
Appeal To All The Senses.
When someone comes to your house for a showing, it’s about more than what they see with their eyes. What they feel emotionally will also have a huge impact on how they see your home.
Make your home feel comfortable to prospective buyers by playing soft music in the background, or by burning a candle that smells like freshly baked cookies or clean linens, or lay a soft and comfy blanket nicely on the couch. These things can encourage your buyers to stick around for a while and make you an offer.
Give Each Room a Purpose.
If you have a space that you are using for many things, clean it up and make it look as if it only has one purpose.
For instance, a homebuyer can feel that having a guest room/office makes the home look cramped.
Instead, make the purpose of the room clear that it is either a guest room or an office. You can consider turning an unused space into something fun, like a game room or library. Even if that is not how you really use your home, you will make the buyer feel less confused about the space if you give each room a purpose. This allows them to more easily imagine themselves living there.
Spend a Day Deep Cleaning and Making Small Repairs.
You might want to spend a little to complete small fixes, such as repairing a crooked shelf, a squeaky step, or a leaky faucet.
You can change the appearance of the home to potential buyers by doing small touch-ups to paint, fixing dings in the wall, or by power washing the driveway.
Remember that your potential buyers will be looking at every corner of your house when they walk in, so take the time to wipe down the baseboards, rake the leaves, and get those stains out of the carpet.
Don’t let them get so caught up looking at a wobbly fan that they miss the beauty of your breakfast nook. You will probably find things to repair you hadn’t even noticed before!
