Are you putting your home on the market soon? You’re probably looking around your place and you’ve got toys strewn out across the living room, dishes in the sink, and a basement that’s collected way too many holiday decorations and unused gardening tools. We understand your panic.
Luckily, there are a few quick and easy ways to get your home ready for potential buyers with these staging tips.
5 Best Home Staging Tips
- Mirrors. Adding mirrors strategically throughout communal living spaces such as sunrooms, hallways, kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms can make the space feel 10 times larger than it is. You can even use a set of smaller mirrors instead of one large one to create a more tasteful and artistic look.
- Set The Table. Set your kitchen and dining room tables as if you were having company over for Thanksgiving. Heck, even light the candles while you’re at it (just have your Realtor blow them out when they’re done showing the place!). Setting a table makes a communal space more inviting.
- Take Down Family Photos. We know you love that photo of your kids playing in the ocean on the Cape from back in ’98, but when it comes to making your home presentable to buyers, it’s best to leave those photos out of the equation. Instead, hang artwork or framed nature photographs.
- Use White & Neutral Colors. After you’ve removed all the clutter from your home, go out and purchase some inexpensive bedding and bathroom towels. Be sure they are either white or a light neutral color. White is attractive to homebuyers because it symbolizes the place is clean and airy.
- Add Colorful Displays. Add a couple pops of color in the form of a simple vignette in every room. This adds interest and a focal point during the walk-through. Try experimenting with different sizes, textures and color combinations. Many homeowners will choose to place their vignettes on bookshelves or coffee tables.
