Home staging is the art of making your home look neat, stylish and inviting to a potential home buyer. It is the essential first step in selling your home. It is the process of making your home stand out from the competition. Here’s how you can get started doing this.
1: De-clutter. Get rid of anything unnecessary or that takes away from the beauty of the space. The seller will have to do this when moving anyway, so why not get it started a little earlier?
2: Depersonalize. You want potential buyers to see themselves in your home; not to see your photos and memories. Put personal items in storage until you move.
3: Paint. Paint makes a world of difference. What you may like on your walls may deter potential home buyers. Paint the walls with current, neutral colors. Repaint white walls so they look fresh.
4. Repair. Do not call attention to any potential problems. Make sure all house repairs are done before buyers come to see your home; otherwise they may see some signs and wonder what else could be wrong, which could deter them from your house.
5. Rearrange/Remove/Add Furniture. Potential home buyers like to see how a space looks with furniture. This can be done by moving some furniture, removing others and even renting some to give your space the right amount of mix it needs to sell.
6. Accessorize. Finally, accessories help sell the space. If a potential home buyer sees how beautiful a home looks with beautiful wall art there and a lovely flower arrangement, they will become much more interested in the space.
