Home staging tips from the experts

Categories: Homeowner Tips | Posted: December 6, 2019

If you are planning to sell your home this winter or in the coming New Year, you might have spent the past few months  getting your home ready to hit the housing market. Once the paint has dried, the flooring is done and your home is showcase ready, you may realize that you need some help in the staging department to give your  home the best foot forward against the competition. Weston Dean Custom Homes, a premier Boerne custom homebuilder, gives you tips straight from the experts on how to get your home ready for a sold sign!

There are five tips that experts routinely use to get a home ready for buyers once it is ready to hit the market. First, be sure that your curb appeal is at its all-time high. The exterior of your home is the first thing that buyers are going to see when they first go to see your home. As with first impressions, make the wrong one and you may have some buyers not even wanting to give your home a chance and make it past the front door.

Consider updating your door color to something classy and bright, to catch the buyers eye. If you have room, some charming outdoor seating is another nice touch to add. Outdoor flowers also bright great color and life to your home, so consider either planting some or placing some flowers in elegant pots outside your front door.

Consider adding stylish new house numbers to the outside of your home, or update your porch lighting and fixtures so it is nice and welcoming when they enter the front door and not dark if they come in the evening.

Once you get the buyers intrigued enough to come inside, be sure the entrance of your home from the inside sets the stage and ambiance you want your home to give off to the buyer.

First, be sure your entryway is warm, light and welcoming. If its cold outside, be sure to have your house nice and warm so buyers get a cozy feel as soon as they walk in the door. Be sure your lighting is warm also, and brighten dark areas of the home with lamps or candles.

You also want your home to smell pleasant, so avoid cooking any smelly food in your home before potential buyers come to visit. Consider lighting candles are getting some diffusers. The best smells are light and subtle smells. Consider going with vanilla, lavender or citrus scents as safe ones all most buyers enjoy.

You can also add some calming sound to your home, such as quiet music or a water feature that will bring a peaceful sound to the home.

Next, be sure to embrace your floor space. Play up every inch of square footage you have in your home, no matter how big or small! Get rid of all clutter and simplify your home as much as possible. Lay down oversized rugs, hang high drapes or remove old draping you may have to open the windows. You can also hang large artwork on the walls, to make them look more grandiose.

Then, be sure to play up the architectural details of your home. If you have a lot of built ins, accessorize them with books, photos, and so on to show that they are useful storage and décor accents the home has to offer. If you have an empty space under your stair case, add a cozy chair, lamp and blanket to show off a reading nook that someone could curl up and enjoy a good book. No matter how old or new your home is, showcase what makes it unique and play up on those elements.

Lastly, play up the lifestyle of the home as well. If you have a great backyard or patio, showcase that! Set up a dining area or arrange some lounge chairs, yard games, an outdoor mini bar or so on so they can picture the entertaining they could do in that space as well, especially as warmer temperatures come our way.

Taking the time to be sure your home is ready on all facets, will allow you to be placing the sold sticker on the front lawn sign sooner than later!
