As a home seller, you only have one crucial opportunity to create a positive, everlasting first impression with prospective buyers. From inside out, It’s of the utmost importance that your home shows and is promoted to the best of its ability. A staged home will have an edge over the competition on the market.
We have compiled a list of do it yourself staging tips that will help your home sell for the highest profit, in the least amount of days on the market.
- Ensure your home is sparkling clean. Dusting, vacuuming , washing floors, cleaning carpets and washing windows will ensure you have your home ready for viewing.
- Declutter your home. Remove extra furniture and accessories so that rooms appear larger and buyers can imagine it as their space.
- Depersonalize your home. Buyers want to be able to picture themselves living in your home. Try to clear out a minimum of 50% of your personal belongings, removing items such as family photos and mementos will help.
- Neutralize your décor and accessories so that they appeal to a wide set of tastes.
- Complete updates and repairs where they are feasible. A coat of fresh paint will help your home shine. Ensure items such as light switches, fixtures, and faucets are in working order.
- Boost your curb appeal, make your home more inviting by improving exterior maintenance and landscaping. Updates such as trimmed grass, clean windows and pruned bushes allow your home to look polished.
- For pet owners, as much as possible make sure their odors are neutralized and their areas are kept clean.
- On viewing days and open houses, ensure the house is kept tidy. Special touches such a vase with fresh flowers, a bowl of fresh fruit or light scented candles, will add to your homes charm.
