Staging a house means getting the property ready to be shown. The goal is to inspire love at first sight, to get potential buyers engaging in daydreams. Here are some helpful tips for staging your house to sell.
💐 Create Curb Appeal
The outside of your house is the first impression a potential buyer has of your property. You want to make them so enchanted with the outside that they can’t wait to see what’s on the inside of your home.
Keep the lawn well maintained, freshen flower beds, remove extra lawn decor, and make sure outdoor furniture is in conversational settings. Consider painting your front door a vibrant color and add a green plant near the entrance to make it welcoming.
🖼️ Remove Personal Items
Removing personal items can be emotional and difficult but it’s a necessary part of staging your house to sell. Your goal is to make it easier for a potential buyer to see themselves living in the home.
Remove photographs, collections, and anything that could be considered controversial. The benefit in removing these items now is that you’re getting a jumpstart on packing for your move.
🛠️ Repair & Upgrade
Replace carpet that is torn, stained, or beyond simple cleaning. If you are replacing carpet or painting walls, remember to use neutral colors that will appeal to a broad range of buyers.
