5 Staging Tips to Overcome Overwhelm

Let's face it, selling your home can feel overwhelming! It’s your personal space and belongings, exposed for a Buyer's opinion and criticism! Here are 5 ways to overcome that overwhelm of staging…​

#1 Curb appeal as easy as 1,2,3

  1. A fresh coat of paint on your front door, railings and deck. 
  2. A new mailbox is also a great idea.
  3. A couple planters with seasonal flowers. Cut grass, trim bushes and add some fresh mulch.

#2 Beige is back!
A fresh coat of paint! Grey has been popular for the past 2 years.  Beige is now back.  Keep walls neutral and clean with a mix of beige tones and even white in smaller darker spaces.

#3 Unclutter
It may seem obvious to many but once you know you are Selling, it's time to start packing!

  1. - Take down all personal pictures and remove all wall stickers from children's rooms.
  2. - Large art pieces on neutral tone walls work well.
  3. - Add a fresh scent to your laundry room.  The space should feel inviting and fresh.

#4 Clean, clean and clean
Remember Buyers do open fridges, cupboards and often look under the kitchen sink.  A clean, uncluttered home shows better and sells faster! 

#5 Final touches
Open windows, let light and fresh air in. Replace old bulbs and add a few extra floor lamps.  Add flowers - lots of them, inside and out. 

On a final note, feel free to bake a cake prior to an open house.  Remember, you are selling a house, but to a new buyer they are buying a home.
