10 Home Staging Tips To Sell Your Home Faster

Home Staging Tips to Sell Faster

Staged homes can sell quicker and for a higher price, because they showcase the home’s best features, impress buyers, and downplay the home’s weaknesses.

1. Focus on the key rooms

There are several areas that homebuyers are zeroing in on when they look at your home, with the living room, kitchen, primary bedroom, and dining room topping the list. If you can’t get to every room, make sure that you spend your time, energy, and money on these rooms.

2. Clean, clean, clean

If you have spent any time looking at homes for sale online, you have undoubtedly encountered some sellers who skimped on the cleaning. If you can’t stage every room in your home, you can still clean every room. It signals pride of ownership and that you have cared for the house over the years. You will not regret cleaning.

3. Declutter your home

Decluttering is something that you can do without having to hire a stager. It gives your home an open, airy feel, making it feel more spacious. 

4. Depersonalize the space

While you are decluttering, be sure to remove any personal items from display. Buyers want to picture themselves in the space, and your family portraits can make it hard for them to imagine.

5. Add Plants

Freshen up your space with live, thriving plants. They can do wonders to make your home feel more inviting. Do not crowd any area with plants, have them dispersed throughout the space.

6. Give Rooms a Purpose

Buyers want each room to have a single, defined purpose. Defining the purpose of each room will maximize the appeal and contribute to that open, clutter-free feel that buyers want. Giving each room a purpose allows buyers to envision how they too can make use of the space.

7. Fresh Paint

A fresh coat of paint can certainly go a long way. When you head to the hardware store, be sure to choose light, neutral colors. People’s color preferences vary widely, and bold choices may scare people away.

8. Let There be Light

You want your home to feel bright and inviting. Open your curtains and blinds to let the natural light pour in. Turn on all the lights. Bring in a lamp to let your home shine if you need new lighting!

9. Furniture

When it comes to furniture, less is more. Don’t clutter a room with too much furniture. The goal is to make your house look bigger. Furniture takes up space and can make the home feel cluttered.

10. Boost the Curb Appeal

The exterior of your home is a great place to start your staging efforts. Some sweat equity over a weekend can turn into real equity in your bank account. Pay attention to the little things like the house numbers, mailbox and welcome mat.
