Staging Your Current Home To Sell
After you find your new Beacon home, it’s time to sell your current one. And this is where staging comes in. Effective staging will ensure that you maximize its sales price. Here are a few of our favorite tips and tricks when it comes to the art of staging:
Declutter: First and foremost, go through every single room to clean up the “clutter zones” or areas rife with old keepsakes, decor, and things to throw away. Pack up or discard everything to make the space feel open and inviting. (This also makes moving much easier.)
Make Quick Fixes: Look for the “quick fixes” — removing area rugs to show off the hardwood floors, taking down curtains and cleaning the windows, changing lampshades, replacing light bulbs for optimal lighting, rearranging furniture, etc. Remember, even the littlest adjustments make a big impact.
Furniture: Time to make a final decision on what should stay. Keep color, style, and function in mind to make the most confident and informed choice, and see your home through a buyer’s eyes.
Look Fresh: The majority of potential buyers see your home in photos online before they see it in person, so everything you do should be about that crucial first impression. Think vases of bright flowers, folded towels in the bathroom, and bowls of fruit in the kitchen.
Depersonalize: Buyers want to see your home as their own, so don’t take it personally. Painting walls with trendy grays or off-whites will make your home look like an “open canvas”.
