Selling Your Home? Staging is a Must.

When you are trying to sell your home, it is imperative that you put effort into stage the home for potential Buyers. We are visual beings, and first impressions mean everything in the home market. A cluttered space or jarring wall color could be enough for some people to pass over your home. Check out these tips below to stage your home and appeal to Buyers!

  • Consider the Buyer

Staging a home has less to do with your personal style and all about the Buyer you are attracting. Discuss with an informed realtor to be knowledgeable about the demographics of your area, and let this guide your staging design.

  •  Remove Extraneous Family Photos

Although you love the hallway full of your precious family photos, you want your Buyer to be able to envision themselves in your home. They will have difficulty doing so if there is an overabundance of photos, and it can also be a distraction.

  • Trends Can Be In

Many trends have a short span of popularity, but ones that stick may not be something you want to change during the Selling process. You don’t want anything too jarring, but some reliable trends or colors can actually give your home a fresh, updated look. Seek your realtor’s advice for what home trends will be beneficial to keep in your home.

  • Home Neutrality

Most experts would agree that staging is a way to enhance your home not distract from it. The safest bet is to stick with neutral colors that would appeal to a majority of Buyers. You don’t want to be “the house with the tacky lime green room.” But, as mentioned above, trendy colors done tastefully and sparingly can be worth the risk.

  • Livable Spaces

Staging is designed to show the full potential of the spaces in your home. Avoid overcrowding the space, but showcase all of its functionality. Show them that your garage has plenty of room for cars and storage, or show them that your Master Bathroom has his and her sinks.

  • Less is More

The overall theme of staging is that less is more. Less clutter, less knick knacks, less distraction! The natural elements of your home should be able to shine through to the Buyer. Some of these elements would include the openness of your kitchen, the natural light that flows into the dining room, the high ceiling in the living room, and so on.
