3 Staging Tips Sellers Often Overlook

We’ve written in the past about the power of staging your home for potential buyers. It really is a phenomenal tool you can use to attract people to your home, sell it faster, and get closer to your asking price. Not every home staging, though, is the same, and they don’t all have the desired effect. If you want to stage your home, but you want serious results, you may want to try these staging tips.

Clean the Fireplace. Many potential buyers love the idea of a fireplace, but they’re only going to be able to imagine themselves in your home if the fireplace is clean. Whether you hire a professional chimney sweeping company to make sure it’s clean or you read a few tutorials on scrubbing the soot off on your own, this is one staging must anywhere you have a fireplace in your home.

Go Fresh. In the kitchen, add some freshly cut flowers and a bowl of fresh fruit. It may sound strange, but buyers really want to feel like they’re walking into a photograph of the world’s perfect home, and those homes always feel fresh, so head for the market to pick out some beautiful lemons, apples, bananas, or anything else you can find that will look great in your fruit bowl as well as some seasonal flowers.

Turn Your Bathroom Into a Spa. Dump the toothbrush holder from beside the sink (or at least hide it temporarily), and go for the elegant spa look. Buy a fancy soap dispenser, a few of the fluffiest white towels you can find, and some decorative baskets to help create that look.
