Staging emphasizes your property’s positive aspects and allows buyers to see themselves living there. It’s not an invitation to unleash your decorating skills. A home’s décor is personal, and staging is the opposite. Staging a home helps it appeal to as many buyers as possible. Here are tips to help you.
Add Natural Touches
Look at 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.
Moving furniture to open traffic flow can make a room feel bigger, or arranging it to create a conversation area gives the space purpose.
Use Lots of Light
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.
