How To Sell Your Home With Home Staging

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 0

If you have decided to sell your home, you can look forward to a lot of anxiety in your near future, anxiety about separation from a place you know, a house full of memories, not to mention the anxiety about whether the sale of your home will be a success or not. It is essential to the process of canvassing, the days of show really can be a pain in the neck that can be cured with some brilliant staging tips home.

An increasingly popular concept in real estate, Home Staging means beating your house in shape for it to look more attractive to potential customers. If you want to do it yourself, you need to change the role of seller to the buyer role and you begin to see your home in a totally different light.

So out to the sidewalk and start fishing home. See if your fence needs a new coat of paint, or if the surface needs a little sweeping, or even if the trees are in great need of some cleaning. Is your house number visible? Upon inspecting the inside of your yard, look for toys or garden tools that have spread around, see if trees and shrubs are well prepared and if the lawn is clean as a pin. Do not forget windows and window frames that need to be cleaned, and corners that must be free of cobwebs, not to mention the exterior lighting must be functional. It would also be a good idea to plant yellow flowers in conspicuous places, as do the house look nicer, and also, yellow is a color that really sells.

Once inside, take a tour of each room and make sure that:

No speck of dust at the lights and everyone is working; holes in the walls that need to be patched and painted, if possible, the whole house should be painted the same color, preferably a neutral Remove clutter and excess furniture whole place must be impeccable, even in areas where who do not usually worry about cleaning, carpets and rugs are well cleaner, not an inch of its soil is left unpolished.

While in the kitchen you need to inspect all closets and cabinets and see that they are clean and tidy, because customers are sure to find them. Remove all contents of its shelves, appliances, everything from your kitchen. You want your buyers focused on your home, not his private life, to take any personal photos or pictures of children away.

When satisfied that the whole place is in perfect order can begin the process of makeup. You are creating an illusion, making your home look bigger, brighter and more welcoming. For the buyer, his collection of fridge magnets is distracting, possibly even irritating, and could delay the rest of the house too.

In general, soft fabrics such as wool, silk and satin give it a cozy atmosphere of home. Flowers and plants and other goodies can be placed in a deliberate way to liven up the place. Always a group of irregular numbers.

Outlets and a granite kitchen can be brought forward to put something bright or colorful in them, such as cookbooks with bright covers or a bowl of brightly colored fruit. If you want your bathroom to have air to five-star hotel, you can always make some scented candles and potpourri around to give a pleasant scent and cover with a basket of rolled towels and soaps. Note also that the towels should be clean.

It is not an easy task to accomplish, but your home should be free to pet every time you are having a day "show." Try to remove all evidence of them too - not everyone likes pets.

Some cinnamon sticks placed in a baking pan in the oven will give your home a pleasant and attractive smell. Then, heat a little and let the oven door open for a while so your scent is carried around the house. A kitchen looks more attractive if it smells like coffee grounds or bread floating in the air.

Home staging is like putting on a program, and you may feel like you are trying to trick people to buy your home. However, much the same as the stores shelves and arranging their goods in a particular way to attract buyers to buy their goods, home staging is the equivalent of real estate. Remember that you are trying to make your home attractive to different people, and a neutral decor, not a personal decoration, will appeal to a broader spectrum. Home staging can make the difference between interest and purchase.
