Tips for Staging Your Home for the Market

When you sell your home you want to obtain the best return on your investment, you want your home to sell quickly, and for the highest price possible.  Home Staging is an effective way to achieve this.

These are a few helpful tips to get you started on preparing your home for a successful sale.

The web listing is where buyers will go first when looking for homes to purchase.

You want your pictures to be effective and grab the buyer’s attention.   A cluttered home can be a turn off for potential buyers.  Make sure your home presents well on the web.



Take Care of Repairs and Maintenance Issues

You greatly increase the change of selling your home quickly if you take care of these details now. Buyers are willing to pay more for a home when they are confident they can move in without worrying about repairs and maintenance issues. Prevent receiving offers requesting a price reduction for items that could have been repaired or improved upon.

Curb Appeal is Very Important When Selling Your Home

First Impressions are lasting impressions.

Curb appeal makes the all-important first impression. You want buyers to fall in love with your home at first site.   The front yard and landscaping should be weed free, hedges trimmed, lawns mowed, and be clean and uncluttered.

Staging the front entrance should be completed. The front entrance to your home should be warm, inviting, and well lit.  A new welcome mat and pots of flowers will help make your home inviting.  Painting the front door in a different colour can also make your home stand out.

Buyers will often drive by your home prior to viewing with their agent.  When buyers first see your house from the street, it only takes about 10 seconds to form an option.  You have to make those 10 seconds count.

View Your Home as a Product

You want to appeal to the widest selection of purchasers.  Buyers are looking for space.  De-cluttering and reducing is one step in the process. Removing personal items such as family pictures, religious items, and reducing the amount of furniture in the rooms are also part of the process.

A well presented home will show better, edge out the competition, and becomes an attractive product for the market.


Stage Your Vacant HomeLiving Room Before

You want buyers to envision the potential of your vacant home. Buyers have a difficult time envisioning their items in a vacant home and determining the size of the rooms can be a challenge.

Furniture provides a sense of scale and helps the buyer to see the size of the room(s). Artwork and accessories are the finishing touch when presenting your home to a buyer.
