Have you been thinking of listing your property and considering staging it to increase its “showability” to draw more potential buyers? In fact, 43% of buyers say home staging has a positive impact on their view of the home, and 83% said home staging makes it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as their future home.

 

Here are some home staging tips for 2021 that will sell your home faster:

Up Your Curb Appeal

The outside of your home is just as important as the inside. Your home needs to have great curb appeal or it could turn away prospective buyers. If your exterior is looking neglected, now is the time to give it some TLC! Do something small, such as ensuring no weeds are growing out of gutters or replacing your tatty doormat can go a long way. If you’re willing to spend money to make money, consider updating the walkway or adding flower beds.

On a serious note, clutter and chaos can disrupt optimal energy flow causing unnecessary stress and disbalance in our lives. So, the best thing to do is remove everything and start over.

Declutter, Depersonalize, and Deep Clean

When staging a house for sale or rent, avoid leaving personal touches on display. Remove any family photos, fridge magnets, or knick-knacks that might distract from the look you are going for. Potential buyers want to picture themselves living there—not you!

Brighten Things Up

Make your home appear as light and bright as possible. Dark rooms feel cramped—if you can’t brighten the space with natural light, use light fixtures, lamps, and mirrors to make the space appear larger and allow for more light to seep across the room. Lighting trends for 2021 include bold designs that look great even when the lights are off!

Repair and Replace

Quick fixes won’t necessarily add value to your home, but they will make it more appealing to buyers. Try painting ceilings and scuffed walls, freshening up the bathroom grout, or replacing a cracked cabinet. Consider replacing items such as toasters or coffee makers if they look tired and outdated, or just tuck them away in storage temporarily if you are tight on cash.

Successful home staging allows potential buyers to imagine your property as their future home. If you are considering home staging for your property, reach out to us to learn more.
