Putting a house on the market is more than just selling a building to someone. It is convincing them that this house will be home. If someone can picture their life in that home, they will be much more likely to buy it. They need to believe that this house fits into their dream for the future.
Staging is a marketing technique that helps the home sell for as much and as quickly as possible. It gives potential buyers an idea of what their life could look like. Rather than creating catalog-style rooms that would be seen on a showroom floor, staging for potential buyers involves personality. The rooms need to feel homey while still providing a sense of opportunity.
Try incorporating these tips and tricks to showcase your home to potential buyers.
These steps are essential in www. If this is all you do, you’ll still be presenting your home in a way that will appeal to buyers.
As you have lived in this home, you have arranged the furniture in a way that suits your life. Maybe you don’t entertain company often, but people like to look at a space and think they could have people over. Allow natural light to shine into the room to brighten it up and remove any unnecessary furniture. You want the furniture to look like it serves a purpose, be it a sitting area or a decluttered bedroom. Bring furniture away from the walls and stage them around a focal point. If the furniture is pushed up against the walls, it creates an illusion that the room is smaller. Make sure there are clear pathways for realtors and buyers to walk around.
If you want to level up your staging, there are little things you can do to add a pop of interest to each room without personalizing it too much.
Although most of the space will be neutral, you can add pops of color with a few decorations. Plants and fruit bowls are a great way of adding life to a room and making them appear homier. A few simple art pieces will help neutral walls not look too dull, just don’t overdo it. Be sure to remember the rule of threes when it comes to placement. A large, medium, and small item placed together adds visual interest.
Smells can help people visualize their life in a new home too. A plate of freshly baked cookies, a diffuser, or a lit candle can add a homey feel to your room.
