A trend in real estate is for sellers to have their homes “staged” to sell. This is a marketing strategy that makes the home look like a model home by dressing the interior and exterior in the most presentable way. There are professional companies that offer staging services or a homeowner can do a few simple things themselves.
COME CLEAN: Buyers want to see the home and not a pile of dishes in the sink or a yard full of toys that haven’t been put away.
DECLUTTER: Get rid of any unnecessary items and make each room looks appropriate according to its purpose. Try to depersonalize as much as possible and keep décor tasteful.
COLOR CREATIVELY: A pop of color with pillows, throws, plants or paintings can make a room stand out. Also make sure the exterior and interior looks fresh and not in need of a coat of paint. *A good neutral color works best if you need a new paint job.
WARM WELCOME: Making your home appealing and inviting makes buyers have a sense of belonging the moment they walk-in. A front mat, a wreath on the door, potted plants, rocking chair or a welcome sign are all inexpensive ways to achieve this.
CURB APPEAL: Make your yard an attractive place free of weeds, debris or clutter. Have the grass mowed and the walkways clean. Use plants and shrubs to highlight the home and yard.
These are just a few ways that a little effort can go a long way in getting your home SOLD!
