How to Stage Your Home to Sell

February 14, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

First impressions are a powerful thing when it comes to selling your home. Staging your house is an effective way of making the most of its best assets. The following tips can help you learn how to stage your home to sell for the highest value possible.

Painting living spaces in fresh neutral tones is one of the cheapest ways you can make a real improvement to your home’s selling ability. Bold, old fashioned paint colors can be a major turn off for buyers, who find it hard to see past an outdated over-personal design. Warm tan, pale yellow and olive tones are all an understated modern take on neutral beige.  A tip nearly all realtors will give you is to de-clutter as much as possible. Anything you do not need should be stored in either the attic or a hired storage space. Remove all but a few simple ornaments from surfaces and thin out overcrowded shelves. An uncluttered home looks far more spacious and gives the impression that there is room to spare.

Take care of any minor repair projects. Little problems with the house might not be too difficult to fix, but those viewing it could think that they are a sign of deeper troubles. A good start is to replace any cracked tiles, fix wonky steps, and mend dripping taps.  Make sure the front of the building is neat and tidy. It is the first thing a viewer sees, so it is extremely important that it is a positive sign of things to come.

Do not neglect your garden. A house could be amazing, but if the backyard is an overgrown mess, the thought of tackling it can scare buyers away. A garden does not need to be professionally landscaped, but a good clear out, a mowed lawn, and a couple attractive plant pots can work wonders. Learning how to stage your home to sell well can give a high return on your effort. Relatively cheap things can add a lot of value, especially if you learn to look at your house objectively as a buyer would see it.
