Staging Your Hampton Roads Home
Now that your home is spick and span, you’re ready to start staging. While most sellers equate their clean home with a staged home, we recommend that you go a little further. We understand staging techniques, head over to our Pinterest page for photos of beautifully staged homes. To get you started, here are a few of the essentials.
We first tackled curb appeal in our section about preparing your home for sale, but if you’re investing time into staging, the exterior of your home is a great place to start. Instead of just mowing the lawn and trimming the hedges, consider adding potted plants near the entrance and topping up the garden beds so they look well-maintained.
Buyers will be scrutinizing every corner and closet in your home, so you’ll want to make sure you beat them to it. Take care of those dark corners under the sink and in the back of your closet. If necessary, pack up excess items in your closets and keep anything unnecessary in storage until your house sells. This also applies to personal items. Remove family photos and minimize personalized décor. Cleaning out these spaces allows for more light and space, which leads to our next set of tips.
Keep the lights bright and the colors neutral and replace any burned out bulbs. Consider painting any colorful accent walls, opting for a complementing color that will act as a clean backdrop to the home. A fresh coat of paint is one of the simplest ways to spruce up a home.
Instead of springing for new furniture, simply remove damaged or worn furniture. An over-cluttered space is much harder to sell than an empty one. Create welcoming, open spaces with just a few key pieces of furniture.
