Moving into a brand new Schaeffer Family home that’s built just for you is one of the most exciting times of your life. But
Effective staging isn’t just for show — in fact, staging your home the right way will ensure that you maximize its sales price. Take a look at a few of our favorite tips and tricks when it comes to the art of staging:
Declutter: First and foremost, it’s crucial to go through every single room in the home to clean up the “clutter zones,” or areas rife with old keepsakes. Either pack or discard of everything to make the space feel open and inviting.
Decide on Furniture: When it comes to the furniture in your home, it’s essential to make a final decision on what should stay and what should go. Always make sure to keep color, style, and function in mind to make the most confident and informed choice, and really see your home through a buyer’s eyes.
Accessorize: Decorate with accessories to make your home look its absolute best both in person and in pictures. The vast majority of potential buyers see your home in photos online before they see it in person, so everything you do in your home should be about that crucial first impression.
Stand Out: Make your home appear unique with just a few fun touch-ups. Change the color of your front door to something like red or robin’s egg to stand apart in a neighborhood or hang multiple mirrors on the walls to create a wide open feel.
Keep it Simple: Last but not least, make sure that your home doesn’t appear too personalized, so a buyer can envision making it their very own.
Because a buyer’s first impression could make or break a decision, it’s important to stage your home the right way. When you understand where the eye goes first, as well as what’s pleasant and positive, and what needs a change, you can make the best adjustments to not only impress buyers, but win them over.
