Staging Your Home To Sell!
There’s NO Second Chance in First Impression!Buyers make decisions about the property within the first 15 seconds of entering the home. Here are seven ways of staging that will guarantee that your home gives an amazing last impression with the potential buyers:
- Store all Personal Items Away: It’s important to make sure the buyer can picture themselves in your home, so that means safely storing any personal items from picture frames to decorative knickknacks. In addition, organizing the closets, pantry, cabinet drawers and other storage areas will show off their size and capacity.
- Minimize Furniture: Rearranging the furniture in a conversation style group setting where it provides the traffic flow of the room. If your home has low ceilings or in a small space, store some of your larger pieces of furniture away will allow your house to appear more spacious, and nice ceiling heights.
- Room Makeover: Everyone has a room or a closet that just filled with stuff that serves no purpose in their home. By adding either a cost-effective curtain,throw pillows on the bed or cozy reading arm chairs and a small side table in between with a pretty lamp & small plant will simply transform the room into warmth amazing setting for any buyers imagination.
- Go Easy on Scents: Some buyers might love the smell of a scented candle or freshly baked cookies, another might not. It’s best to keep scents light and minimal in order to boost appeal. So, the buyers don’t think the home owner is trying to hide something.
- Lighting the Home: Lighting is extremely crucial to staging a home. It delivers the coziness and welcome feeling of the home. Every sellers should increase the wattage to 100 watts for every lighting in the house from recess, pendant, under-cabinet to lamps. Be sure to use the LED warmth lighting, because it will give the prospective buyers a warmth & inviting feeling as they enter your home, as well as it safe on the electric bills when you use LED versus incandescent.
- Stay Neutral: Paint the walls of your home neutral warm color to give the room the larger open space illusion. Couple with white crown moldings to compliment the paint color, and present the richness & texture of the home. Many interior designers definition of neutral paint is from eggshell beige, extremely light tan, supple light grey to soft honey. Do not paint different hue in different rooms of the home.
- Wall Arts: Don’t make the common mistake by hanging the wall art high, instead hang it at eye level and break up the line or group to show off your space. Moreover, never hang any art that is controversial. Remember, the goal is to sell your home.
- Numbers Matter: Many designers & artists have defined on how to accessorizes different tables, mantles or walls by using odd numbers of 1 or 3 to accessorize. In group of three, each accessory items placed at each point of the triangle format with different heights and sizes from the largest item in the back to the smallest item in the front. Various times, one accessory is enough for the room, like a bowl of green apples or a bouquet of flowers from the your yard.
- Repair & Finish Projects: Buyers are fearful of home with unfinished projects, and broken items in the home. These project & items could range from the wood floor, cracked sidewalk/driveway, wall tapes, appliances, faucets, irrigation, deck, patio..etc… It’s less expensive to finish the project or repair /replace items than the buyer’s deduction from the asking price.
- Clean Up Outdoor Areas: A pressure wash to clean a patio, deck or driveway, sweep up debris around the pool, trim the bushes in square shapes and plant color flowers in both front & backyard will leave a marvelous memorable impression of the home, which equals to money in your pocket.
