Staging your home is a great way to enhance the appeal of your property to buyers. Home-staging and lifestyle expert Tori Toth shares some tips for homesellers.

Add natural touches
Take a cue from the geography surrounding the home and use natural elements that reflect that area. You want to add plants and flowers to soften spaces and subliminally remind buyers that life grows here.

Rearrange furniture
Moving furniture to open traffic flow can make a room feel bigger, or arranging it to create a conversation area gives the space purpose. 

Set the mood with lighting
A house that's illuminated says, "Come on in." Open your blinds and curtains to let in natural light, and put the maximum allowable wattage in fixtures to boost illumination.

Accessorize the entryway
Add strategic pieces—a table lamp, artwork, mirror, decorative box—to create a statement when welcoming people into a home.

Before selling your home it is important to evaluate it and see where improvements can be made. If you don’t have neutral paint colors on your walls, then painting is important as bright paint or odd paint colors can scare away some potential buyers. Packing up at least half of the stuff in your closets and removing extra furniture pieces in some of your rooms can help create the look of a bigger space. Great tips, thanks for sharing!
