5 Professional Staging Tips to Quickly Sell Your HomePosted on Mar 08, 2018
You've taken the leap and put your home on the market. How can you help prospective buyers see how special your home is? Follow these professional staging tips to make your home stand out from the rest.
Give the interior a fresh coat of paint.
This is an inexpensive way to brighten the walls, and can have a major impact. Neutral colors are generally the best idea, as people have specific feelings about bold colors. A neutral tone will be least offensive.
Pack up as much as you can ahead of time, and put it into storage. Put away all non-essential items, including most decorations. A minimalistic look will help make the interior spaces look larger, and help people picture themselves in the home.
Deep clean the carpets.
Hire a company to come steam them for you, or rent a steam cleaner and do it yourself. You'll be amazed at how good they will look, and it is less pricey than installing new carpets!
Clean up your yard and garden spaces.
Remove overgrowth, especially around windows and doorways. Opt for a simple, clutter free garden area that will not scream "high maintenance" to the buyer. If you have the means, don't forget to power wash the exterior of the house! The outside of your home is an important first impression.
Make minor repairs.
If you have a sticky closet door, or a sink that drips, now is the time to call a handyman to take care of all those minor annoyances. You may have learned to live with them, but the small bits here and there can add up to a buyer who doesn't want to deal with a bunch of repairs. It could also make them wonder what large issues lurk beneath the surface.
