Become a Home Staging Pro
There’s so much to do when you are moving! And selling your current home can be one those things that must be done before you can move on to your new living space. To help with that process is this little known strategy as staging. According to Wikipedia, “Home staging is the act of preparing a private residence for sale in the real estate marketplace. The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling a property more swiftly and for more money.”
Check out this compact guide of inexpensive tips to help your home move just like you!
Make an Impression with Your Front Lawn
Sometimes it not just about looks, but also smell. If possible, make sure to have your grass freshly cut before any open houses or showings. This not only improves the outside aesthetics of your house but also the smell is enticing and can give the sense of “home” to the prospective buyers. This is a two bird with one stone kind of option!
Keep Your Home Light and Bright
Make your home bright, mostly. It’s all about showcasing what an amazing property you have so don’t make it look like you are trying to hide anything. Keep all the lights on for showings with certain rooms, like the living room, with dimmers on to show ambiance. Go a step farther and replace any light fixtures or lampshades that are worst for wear. This is a quick way to make a whole room look updated.
Seriously consider incorporating mirrors into your décor. Not only does this make the space look larger and more open, but it will also be easier for the new potential owners to envision what their belongings will look like in the space instead of trying to picture it on top of your style.
Get Rid of Clutter
Make sure to get rid of any odds and ends in your home that could look like clutter. Renting a storage unit or utilizing your garage might be a good solution. This goes back to that “clean” look and feel that everyone enjoys looking at.
