Real Estate Tips: Quick Staging when you are selling your home

Friday, March 9th, 2012

You might have a great set of furniture but your unique wallpaper might not appeal to a lot of potential buyers. You should see the home from the perspective of a buyer and this should guide you how to enhance the property. Here are some practical and quick fixes to dash up your home:

Make the entrance inviting

People who are looking for a home to buy usually drive by to check the property out before deciding to contact the seller. The area near the front door should be nice and you will almost likely be contacted so the interior can be checked.

No Clutter

Put away any stuff which may distract your target buyer from focusing on the property. Put away boxes, knickknacks, and photos so the square footage of the house can be clearly appreciated.

Showcase your space

You need to arrange the furniture so you can show how big the spaces are. Remove unwanted pieces so you can create a smooth flow of traffic when you give a tour of your house. Clear the walls of your furniture so the buyer can go around the perimeter of a certain room and it will also help to make the room look bigger.

Reduce odors

Smells will make an impression to potential buyers. Make sure you remove odors of cooking, smoking, or of pets. Make it as fresh as you can. Open the windows before you do an open house. Boil some cinnamon or bake some goodies to make it smell nice and fresh. Clean the rooms and fixings thoroughly and make everything squeaky clean.

Do necessary repairs

Go around your home and make sure you fix the things that need some fixing. Check the walls, ceilings, faucets, cabinets, and other parts of the house. Pretend that you are buying the home and check what the buyer might check out.
