Top 5 Home Staging Tips
By Trisha Mendoza
Home staging, which is the physical preparation of a private residence that’s up for sale in the real estate market, is an essential step in making your home more appealing to prospective buyers.
Below, we’ve listed a number of tips and tricks for your home staging.
Step 1: The first thing a prospective buyer will see is the paint on the house because it sets the mood of the property. Paint your house with a neutral color, which can highlight some of the most pleasant elements of your home. A neutral color can also create a calming effect on your home, and can make it look bigger and brighter.
Step 2: Fix leaking faucets, holes in the ceiling, and worn out lights. There’s this tendency among prospective buyers to think of possible repair and replacement costs, which might affect the perceived intrinsic value of your property.
Step 3: Rearrange your furniture and remove clutter from your home to make it look more spacious. Pack up your personal items such as family photos, portraits, etc. Essentially, packing in advance can also reduce the stress when it’s time for you to move out.
Step 4: Clean every inch of the house—wipe the windows and swipe the floors—before putting it up for sale. Replace stained carpets, curtains, and bed sheets. More importantly, get rid of unpleasant odors in your home.
To make your home staging a lot easier, hire a professional home stager who can help you fix and arrange your house.
