Tips For Staging Your Home

One of the most important aspects of selling your home is staging your residence to make a favorable first impression on prospective buyers.  As the old adage goes, “a first impression leaves a lasting impression,” making it somewhat necessary for homeowners to adequately arrange their home for buyers.

Leave plenty of space – When it comes to staging your home, less is often more. De-cluttering will make rooms look bigger and more welcoming to a potential buyer. A crowded home can be overwhelming and confusing, so don’t hesitate to remove a substantial amount of furniture if you have the storage space.

Give an impression of newness – Decorate to dazzle, removing worn-down items in favor of newer pieces that convey a feeling of freshness. The initial excitement of a first impression can go a long way towards luring buyers in, so it’s important to add to this in any way you can.

Remove your personal stamp – No one will buy a home if they can’t imagine themselves living in it. Family photos and personal keepsakes are great, but buyers are going to want to feel at home. Let them imagine where they would put their own personal treasures in your home.

Appeal to all – No matter who does the decorating in your home, keep in mind that a sale may rely on the decision of an entire family. Pink walls and roses might sway one spouse and turn off another. Don’t forget about the kids! A little nagging from an excited child could work wonders.

Accessorize for luxury – When accessorizing, convince potential buyers that moving into your house can be a permanent vacation. Equip your home with all the bells and whistles of a five-star hotel room to mimic the comfort and convenience of a relaxing retreat.

Cleanliness is key – Simply put, make your home as attractive as it can be. Clean wherever possible, and remove or paint over any stains or permanent damage. Knowing that a home has been well maintained and cared for over the years will give potential buyers peace of mind.
