When you’re looking to sell your home in St George, staging it is essential. Presenting your home in the best light possible can give you the edge over your competitors like few other things can. But from all of the tips available out there about what you should, and should-not do when staging your St George home, how do you know what the best tips are?
We’ve taken the time to put together our list of what some of the most important tips are when staging your home.
This is one usually on the top of everyone’s list. Get rid of the clutter! It’s hard for people to easily visualize their furniture, clothes, and lives, in your home when they can’t see the floor. So get rid of the extra junk. This includes downsizing how much furniture you have in the home. You want your property to look bigger, and having it full of couches, nightstands, and bookshelves closes it down.
If you want to send a huge flag to home buyers that you don’t take care of your property, it’s a gross and grimy bathroom. So spend some time and get your bathrooms looking spic and span. Even give them a fresh coat of paint to really push them over the top.
3 Look at the master bedroom
Don’t turn off potential buyers by having a master bedroom that only appeals to one of the sexes. If your master is too gender-specific, then you potentially alienate half of those who are deciding which home to buy. So take a good look at your master, and if you’ve got to get rid of that pink wall with a neutral color then do it. It will go a long way with potential buyers.
4 Kitchen Cabinets
The next thing you should be aware of are old grungy kitchen cabinets. Remember people will spend a lot of time in their kitchens, so having one that’s inviting and not dated is definitely a must. A dated kitchen with old cabinets can really turnoff buyers who are maybe on the fence. If you can’t afford to replace the cabinets then look into getting them re-stained. A lot of people have good luck just painting them as well, something like a subtle white, or light blue
5 Increase Curb Appeal
First impressions are huge with buyers. If they come up to your home and your front yard and exterior turns them off, then oftentimes it’s hard to get them past it. No matter how great your house is on the inside, if the outside doesn’t compliment it then you’re facing an uphill battle. So take a look at your exterior and make a few improvements to it to ensure when you get those buyers, that they can picture themselves coming home to it everyday.
