Selling a house in today's housing market can be a tricky undertaking. Sellers must ensure that their home appeals to the largest number of prospective buyers by presenting the home in a way that highlights its positive attributes. Home staging is an important concept to help generate buyer interest in a home. Here are four home staging ideas to help sellers make their homes more attractive.
Those that are moving might have boxes of their possessions laying around or personal items in places where they are easily visible to potential buyers visiting the home. To help make a home more appealing, remove things like movie and music cases, pictures of friends and family members, and trophies or awards. The focus of a prospective buyer should be on the room, not the things in it.
It is true that homeowners get the unique advantage of being able to paint their walls any color that they wish, but when it is time to sell it is important to avoid unorthodox color choices that may put off certain people. Stick with whites, tans, grays, and other colors that are easy on the eye. Be sure that these colors accentuate the furniture that is being displayed in the home.
Smell is one of the most powerful human senses. Although homeowners may be used to unique odors in the home, some of them may not sit well with prospective buyers. Candles or plug-in air fresheners are a great option to remove odors. A more unique option is to bake cookies or other treats right before visitors come in, which will help them associate a home with pleasant smells.
Almost every homebuyer wants to get as big of a space as possible for the money that they are investing. Be sure to arrange furniture in a way that emphasizes the space in every room: use walls and corners cleverly to create open spaces. For adjacent rooms, HGTV recommends painting walls the same color to make them feel like one open area.
