6 Secrets, You NEED To Follow When Staging Your Home

You have made it this far… You found an agent and you’re home is going to market. There are some secrets that you should probably do however to ensure your home gets the best response during showings. Below are the 6 Secrets, you need to follow when staging your home.

Use Color Creatively:

Obviously you do not want to go crazy with the lime green paint and pink curtains. Though it is recommended to place color themes in your rooms. The easiest way to do this is with paint. Stick with subtle neutral colors so you do not frighten potential buyers.

Less Is More: Clutter Is Bad

We all love the photos of you, and your family, and the dog, and the first drawing baby Susie ever made, and the magazines in the bathroom, and the…Well you get the idea. Although most of those items are true to your heart. Potential buyers want to imagine their family photos hanging on the walls, not little Jimmy’s first bike ride. De-personalize the house and use minimal decor instead: Artwork on the walls, minimalist floral arrangements, throw pillows…

Float The Furniture

What does that mean? Keep furniture off walls to create subdivided rooms. This will open up walking space and give visuals of individual spaces within your home.

Re-purpose

Take rooms that aren’t used and re-purpose them. This opens up the imagination for potential buyers and helps them think outside the box. Create Office Space in the back room, or just a relaxation room to enjoy a good read. 

Let There Be Light!

Open all the windows in the home and use lightly colored blinds or curtains. This will give an appearance of bigger space and it will be less claustrophobic to potential buyers. If your space does not have a lot of natural light use lighter colors on the walls: Possible light greys and white trim. Also, get updated lighting fixtures, and lamps, as this is one of the best ways to lighten up your space and give it a modern feel.

Create An Entrance

The best way to start off on the right foot with a buyer is to have a dramatic entrance, and dramatic in a good way. Having too much clutter when you open the door or no consistency to a room may distract buyers. Leave the space up to imagination for change but have enough design elements to give them an idea what the space could look like.

Need inspiration? Ask your realtor… depending on the budget and time he/ she can provide you with resources or design ideas that you can do yourself. Your realtor also may have a business relationship with interior designers if that is what makes sense to you.
