The staging in your home could be the difference between whether or not a buyer can actually see themselves in your home. Below are 6 simple staging tips to make sure that your house makes an outstanding impression. You can also find small project ideas that add big value to your home.
Store Personal Items
Your goal is to make your house appeal to the largest segment of likely buyers in order to secure the best possible price. In order to do this, it’s important to make sure the buyer can picture themselves in your house, so that means safely storing any personal items.
Rearranging and even storing furniture will allow your house to appear more spacious as well as show off its charm and unique details.
Go Easy on Scents
One buyer might love the smell of a candle or freshly baked cookies, another might not. It’s best to keep scents neutral and minimal in order to boost appeal.
Show off Storage
Clearing out closets and other storage areas will show off their size and capacity.
Create a Hotel-like Space
Some of the best hotels invite guests to feel at home – and that is precisely what a buyer should feel when viewing your house.
The first impression is often the most important. Try to identify outdoor furniture and landscaping that complements your house’s distinctive style, a great place to start is checking out your Neighbor’s homes.
Small Projects That add Big Value to Your Home
Even if you don’t have the funds or the energy for a big improvement project or remodel, small changes can make your home a more enjoyable place to live, increase its value, and help you command the best possible price from buyers.
Exchange Light Fixtures for Ceiling Fans
A stylish new ceiling fan instantly updates a room and can add value to your home. Choose fans that create a rustic vintage look or add a cool island vibe to an outdoor patio.
Replace your Kitchen Faucet and Sink
If your sink is chipped and stained, or your faucet is grungy, new fixtures will make food prep and washing dishes more enjoyable. Even a basic but deeper stainless steel basin will sparkle, and a pullout faucet will add a modern touch.
Simple Changes in the Kitchen and Bathrooms
A new backsplash can tie together the colors in your counters, floors and cabinets and can be an easy do-it-yourself project. New drawer and door knobs are a lovely addition. Adding a medicine cabinet or changing the mirror in a bathroom will instantly update the room.
