When you put your home on the market, your ultimate goal is to sell it quickly and get the price you’re asking for. Staging a room, or rooms, gives the buyer a great visual that they would like to see in their new home. If you’re planning to put your house on the market this spring here are six home staging tips to make a potential buyer fall in love with your home just like you did.
Clear Out Clutter
A buyer might be turned of if there are toys all over the living room or papers all over the office. Throw away things you don’t need or begin boxing things up for your move. Getting rid of the extra clutter will clear up any space and allow the full potential of the room to show.
Rearrange your furniture to make your living room a conversation area. Use a coffee table in the center of the room as a focal point and work outward from there. Top it off with a rug and matching throw pillows to create a warm and inviting space.
Use Your Junk Room Wisely
You might have an extra, unused bedroom in your home that has become the ‘junk’ room over the years. Clear it out and add inexpensive furniture to show how functional the space can be.
Style The Dining Room Table
A bare table can often look uninviting. Create a cheap, colorful centerpiece with flowers in a vase and set the table with plates, glasses and silverware. Make that formal space come alive in an inviting environment that a potential buyer is sure to love.
Utilize Storage Space
Believe it or not, storage space in a home sells! Don’t pack your closets full of stuff just to get it out of the way, because people are going to look in there anyway. Keep your closets clean and organized, and leave the door open if that’s an option.
Keep the Walls Neutral
This is important for all of the rooms throughout your house. You want your home to appeal to both men and women, so neutral colors are the best way to go. You can add pops of color with pillows, throws, lamps and other accessories.
Home staging is the easiest way to show buyers the true potential of your home. Whether you’re completely dressing up the space or making it appear more functional, a buyer will appreciate it and be able to picture how they can use the space.
