One of the best ways to get your home sold fast is by staging it to perfection! Staging your home means presenting it as a blank canvas to potential buyers. Your home should be thoroughly cleaned and bright, but lacking any personal effects. Potential buyers should be able to walk through it and easily picture themselves living there.
Staging your home successfully is an art form, which is why we want to share these tips with you! Use this page as your guide to staging your Triangle area home. Have more specific questions about staging or selling your home? Please don't hesitate to give us a call.
Make the Front Porch Welcoming
Tidy up the furniture, buy a new welcome mat, put out some potted flowers, replace your doorknob, and paint your front door a fresh new color to welcome potential buyers home!
Cleaning & Repairs
Clear Out the Clutter
When it comes to staging your home, decluttering it should be your biggest priority! Go through each room in your home and aim to reduce its contents by at least a quarter. Come up with a system to "rate" your items based on their monetary value, how much they mean to you emotionally, and how useful they are. Then sort them three ways: keep, sell, or donate.
Clean, Clean & CLEAN!
Seriously, this is the most important part of staging your home. Your home needs to shine! If you have the means, you may even want to consider hiring a professional cleaning service. That way, you'll just have to tidy it up week to week and before a new tour.
Create Balance with Furniture
You want to have the right balance of furniture. It should complement that natural space in your home and highlight its possibilities, but it should never feel crowded. For example, couches arranged to face each other can seem cozy and conversational, but too many bulky chairs in one room may seem overcrowded.
The Final Details
Increase Your Lighting
Let in as much natural light as possible by opening up all the windows in your home (weather permitting). If it still feels a little dark, don't be afraid to turn on some ambient lighting for atmosphere.
