With our experience in the home buying and selling business, we know just how important house staging can be. Typically, it can be ideal for anyone who is looking for a faster sale and to get more cash – which is why we would recommend everyone selling their homes to put in the time and effort to stage it properly.
Unsure of what to do? Don’t worry, we’re here to help you out. We’ve taken the time to find some of the best staging tips for selling your home so that you don’t have to.
1: What needs to be done before staging?
We’d advise anyone to clean their home inside and out before they stage it. The exterior of the property is the first thing that a potential buyer is likely to see and if they aren’t impressed, they may not look any further. We’ve found that proper work and maintenance can increase the value of a home by a substantial amount – sometimes by as much as $15,000!
2: Pick a neutral color scheme when painting
Repainting the walls in neutral colors is vital for anyone who is planning on staging their home to get the most value possible. A fresh coat of paint can make a huge difference, especially when the color is just right. Often, a buyer will look for warm colors that will be easy enough to match while decorating. Be sure to consider the different options carefully, as it can make all the difference.
3: Show off storage space
When staging a home, it can be crucial to show off all the property’s available storage space; including closets, shelving, and even outside storage. So many people look for this in their potential new home and can often get overlooked by sellers, so it can be important to clean out closets and show off any and all areas that can be used to store accumulated items.
4: Less is more
Want to make the most from a sale? In general, a great way to do this is to depersonalize and de-clutter a home. The less furniture and personal possessions there are, the more appealing it will be to potential buyers. We found that sellers could get an extra 15% on the value of their property just by doing this.
5: Let in natural light
After all the work that’s put into making the home perfect, it would be a huge mistake to hide it all and turn buyers away with poor lighting, so be sure to let in as much natural light as possible to showcase all the beauty of the property. It’s a well-known fact that natural light can often help to make potential buyers feel good emotionally (it has been scientifically proven to increase serotonin levels in the brain), and this can translate into a positive feeling about the property.
These are just a few of the things that we feel can be the most beneficial for those who want to make the most of their home sale. There are other great staging tips out there, but we feel that these are some of the most important ones to consider for anyone who is looking for the easiest and most cost-effective ways to stage their home.
