Are you thinking of selling your home? Research shows that a professionally staged home sells faster and for more money than homes that have not been staged. Contact the Johnson Team Real Estate to set up a home staging consultation with your pre-listing appointment. “Staging” a home should be thought of as creating an appealing but neutral space that will allow buyers to see the potential of your home. Naturally, it’s difficult to look at your own home objectively; it’s yours, after all. So consider enlisting a professional home stager to evaluate your space, and make your home the star of the show.
Here are some tricks that most professionals consider:
-Staging is more about subtraction than addition. A room stuffed full of furniture will looked smaller, crowded, and difficult to move around in. Ideally, only the basic furniture should remain in order to highlight the size of each room.
-Get rid of clutter! Pack up your everyday items on table and dresser surfaces, knickknacks, magazines, electronics, etc. You want buyers to focus on your home, not on your “stuff”.
-Remove personal items from view. While of course you love displaying your family’s photos and cherished mementos, they are a distraction for potential buyers. A buyer wants to be able to see themselves in the home and not feel as though they’re in someone else’s space.
-Take everything off the kitchen counters and display a few cookbooks and a beautiful glass bowl of lemons instead. A bouquet of flowers – real or silk – on the dining table is a nice touch.
-In bathrooms, get all of the clutter off the countertops and sink area. A few fluffy towels and attractive soaps can provide that “spa” feeling with minimal cost.
-Be sure walls and flooring are clean and maintained. Paint any rooms where the walls are in bad shape as well as any that have strong, “polarizing” colors. A potential buyer might find your red dining room and the purple in your teen’s bedroom a real turnoff.
-A few large potted houseplants can soften a room and make it feel friendly and fresh.
