When selling a home, you want it to look best in the eyes of potential buyers. That is what the staging home is about. Check out these home building tips and make changes. It can help your home sell faster and make more money.
1. Focus on potential rooms
Not all rooms are considered equal when it comes to home staging. You want to focus on the rooms that have the biggest potential to influence buyers’ decisions, and spend less time on the rooms that won’t make much of a difference. So that, pay attention to the living room, master bedroom and kitchen and forget about less influential rooms such as guest bedrooms, children’s bedrooms and bathrooms.
2. De-personalize the space
One of the main goals of home staging is to help potential buyers visualize the space as their own. The fastest way to accomplish this is to set as the blank of a canvas as you can. You want the house to be stylish and attractive, but it should not have a personal highlight that the house belongs to the seller, not the buyer.
For example, delete any personal photos, take down anything hanging on the wall. Keep clothes stored and out of sight, and clean the bathroom of personal items. Eliminate anything religiously public as well. While personalizing your home makes it a bit odd to live in, it is extremely helpful to help buyers better connect with the property.
3. Be neutral
This staging trick is a bit more time consuming and costly, but it can make a big difference when it comes to price and time in your market. The bright colors on the walls help people show off their home’s personality, but they can be a big turning point for buyers.
When arranging a house for sale, one of the best things you can do is paint on with neutral colors (gray, white and taupe). The bold colors that can distract a room’s assets, as well as the pictures and clothes, are bold signs not the future of the home, but its past. Buyers may want bright colors, but a neutral home gives them the option to do that – or not.
4. Let the room brighter
A room with lots of light makes it easy for viewers to see inside the room. On the other hand, a dark room brings a sad and cramped feeling. Brighten it up by putting more light into the house. This helps to make your home more friendly and spacious.
5. Rearrange your furniture
You want to have as much open space as possible to walk. This helps buyers navigate the space, and also helps them better visualize their own furniture in each room. Keep outside furnitures in storage, remove any oversized or damaged pieces and things that don’t fit into the rest of the room. With the rest of the furniture, rearrange to make the room look as spacious and comfortable as possible.
In short, setting up a home for sale doesn’t require a lot of money – just making smart decisions. Your agent will be able to help you make specific changes that will add value to your home and entice buyers to see. Once you know you’ve done everything you can to show your home in the best, you can sit back and wait for the right buyer to come by.
