Staging Your Home to Sell
Top 6 Reasons to Stage Your Home
Bring out the best in your home! Your home might be beautiful. Maybe it is immaculate, or highly upgraded with the finest materials and features. Perhaps it is all of these things. But, unless you are one in a thousand, it is not “staged.”
De-personalize. Remove objects that your potential buyers won't be able to identify with. Buying a home is an emotional decision, and you want potential buyers to make an emotional connection with your home by being able to "see" themselves in it.
Curb appeal. They say you can only make one "first impression," and people usually form their first impression within 30 seconds. What potential buyers see when they drive up to your house will be their first impression. This is a good place to spend a little extra time and money. Plant flowers, trim bushes, weed, pick up leaves, repaint your front door, replace tarnished house numbers or a dented mailbox, and get a brand-new neutral doormat.
The entrance. The first glimpse inside your home should give potential buyers positive, uplifting feelings. Make your entryway as light and bright as possible. Leave all the lights in the house on
Kitchen. Kitchens sell homes, so the importance of making your kitchen appealing can’t be underestimated. Clean and declutter! Anything taking up space on counters, floors or the refrigerator must go.
Bathrooms. Again, clean and de-clutter! You absolutely must get rid of any mildew/mold. Pick up all bath mats/rugs. Keep your all glass and soap dishes pristine. Only high-quality, neutral, fluffy towels should be displayed.
But if selling your home in the shortest amount of time and for the most money is your goal, it is precisely those "others” who should be your focus.
The goal of staging is to make the home speak to everyone else, in a compelling and positive way.
