Home Staging: Strategies to Make Selling Faster



Selling a home is somewhat complicated especially when you’re in a rush on selling it and you doesn’t want to compromise its selling price. In order to make selling more easier, the seller must know effective ways of home staging. Home staging is the term use for preparing a property or a residence for sale in a marketplace in which you are making the selling property more appealing to the prospective buyers.

Here are few strategies to remember when doing a home staging:

1. Exterior: Impress buyer onset.
Home exterior is the first thing buyers would get to see during the open house and you might want the buyers to make them see a clean, calm and inviting surroundings. Start cleaning your patio or have your outside walls brushed free from ferns, vines or accumulated dust. Have your plants neatly placed on your patio, make sure they’re trimmed and looked healthy. Check your surroundings if there is anything else that would look hard in the buyer’s eyes.

2. Furniture: Declutter

Remember that you are selling your home and not your furniture and you don’t want your prospective buyers to envision themselves living in a home full of obstruction. So, start decluttering. Remove or hide your knickknacks and take away the furniture you think is not necessary or replace them with modern types or those that would match your home paintings. Make your potential buyers feel as cozy and lightly as you can in their envisioned home.

3. Tiles, walls, windows and ceilings: Be meticulous

Be meticulous in inspecting your tiling, walls, windows and ceilings. Check for cracks and have it replace if necessary because it is a definite sore point for your home. Sweep away spider webs and wipe off the dust on your ceilings or have it repainted if necessary. Be sure to clean your bathroom and make it sparkle, you might want to feel your buyers as if they are in a hotel room.

4. Floors. Last but not the least.

Well, you might want to welcome your buyers with a flawless and sparkling floor. So, be sure to mop your floor or have it waxed or replace the chipped or cracked parts.

Staging a home is not easy as it would take a lot of one’s time and effort. Thinking of ways on how to make it look welcoming to the potential buyers is stressful but one would see the outcome is more pleasurable. Always remember to put yourself in your buyer’s shoes as you also want to put your investment in rewarding benefits.
