Sell Your Home Faster: Four Home Staging Tips


If you are planning on putting your house on the market then there are several things that you can do to sell your home faster and get the asking price or higher. A few small adjustments can make all the difference to making your home a more beautiful, spacious and attractive property. This article focuses on four home staging tips that will help you to sell your home in no time at all.

Boost Curb Appeal

They say that you never get a second chance to make a first impression, and this certainly rings true when selling your property. Many potential buyers will choose to make a quick drive past your house to see if it is something they want to arrange a viewing for. This means that you should have the entrance way to your home looking picture perfect for the whole time that your property is on the market. Make sure that all walkways and driveways have been power washed to remove any dirt or grime. The lawns should be perfectly manicured and any leaves removed from the area. All windows should be cleaned, and you can repaint any doors or porches that need a revamp. A landscape gardener and handyman can help you to achieve a perfect entranceway to your home. This will increase your chances of getting first viewings.

Clear the Clutter

It may sound obvious but people will want to view your home and be able to imprint their own style onto it. This is much easier for them if you remove most of your clutter, such as ornaments and photo frames. You can place these items into storage or neatly box them and put them into the attic or basements areas while your home is on the market.

Empty Closets

It can be very embarrassing if potential buyers open closets only to see a messy and overflowing space. Buyers like to know that there is plenty of storage space within the home. Take the time to get rid of any clothing that you are no longer wearing, install some additional internal storage units and make sure that everything is neatly organized and folded away. As a rule of the thumb you will want to have 20 to 30 percent of the space in the closet free as to give the appearance of spaciousness.

Style the Dining Room Table

Without adding clutter to the dining room you can use a few simple items to make it appear more beautiful and inviting. Some freshly cut small flower arrangements positioned onto the table will add some extra style to the room while also adding a lovely fragrance. Avoid using large oversized arrangements as this can overpower the room and make it appear too formal.
