When you sell your house, staging is an important aspect that will help your sale. We want to give your house the best possible chance to sell for the most money, and staging helps us do that. We find that staging gives a home a personality and helps people get a feel for a home's space, especially if it's a vacant or new construction home. Additionally, there are different types of staging, which many people don't realize. For example, one company we work with only does accessory staging, meaning they come to a house and add things like pops of color in the pillows, plants, and other things like that to liven up a property. They will take down your more personal items and help give your house a more neutral face, which buyers appreciate. It helps them visualize themselves in the home—and it costs next to nothing.
Buyers appreciate it when you give your home a nice, neutral feel.
There are a few specific things you can do to stage your home outside of hiring a stager. One of my favorite things to do is buy a new comforter set for your master bedroom. It helps buyers feel like they're walking into Pottery Barn because things are bright, crisp, and clean. You want the space to feel cozy and inviting, and new bedding helps. The same goes for matching towel sets in the bathrooms and shower curtains. The best part is that you'll have all this great new stuff to take to your new home! Another one of our main staging tips is to change out heavy or dark drapes. Replace them with something sheer or lighter that will let the light in and bring attention to the windows. These are just a few tips, so if you have any you'd like to share, we'd love to add them to our list. If you have any other questions about staging or about the home selling process in general, just give us a call or send us an email. We'd love to help!
