Take a look at our tips on home staging:
#1 Add Mirrors
A mirror not only adds some style to a space, its reflective quality can open up a room, making it brighter and seem less cramped (even if it’s tiny).
#2 Upgrade Rugs
Buy rugs that actually fit your rooms and your furniture. For a living room rug, avoid one that’s too small; make sure at least the front legs of your couch or chairs are touching the rug. The right-sized rug in a complementary style to the room will make the space look larger and feel more “pulled together.”
#3 Deep Clean
No prospective buyer wants to walk into a house with a dirty bathroom or scuffed-up walls. Take some time to clean every room in your house, but beware of cleaning smells. Don’t overpower homes with scented items. They will think you are hiding something. Instead, make a batch of chocolate chip cookies and leave on the counter for future buyers.
We know you went to great lengths to make your home your home, but now that you’re trying to sell it, keep in mind that not everyone has the same tastes. Take out personal photographs and everyone’s clutter. You want the potential buyer to be able to envision their lives inside the house.
