Have you been think about putting your home for sale on the market, but are not sure that your home is ready to sell?
Are you worried that it will take too long to sell, or that you won’t be able to sell it for what you want?
Staging your home may be just what you need!
These are a few tips to get you started inside of your home:
- De-clutter This is one of the most essential things that you can do to improve the marketability of your home. You are planning to move in any case, so why not just start packing now? Start packing all non-essential items that are not being used as decorative staging items and store them out of sight. Storing them in a garage or unfinished basement can work if you are tight on funds or just frugal, but mountains of boxes and furniture in those places are not ideal either. A moving container on the property would be better and an even better option would be storage completely offsite.
- Organize your closets Group pants, shirts, skirts, shorts etc. by color. Why you ask? Because doing so will make your closet appear larger. An organized closet will look bigger, and you will want your closets to look as large as possible to potential buyers.
- Make your home look like a model home It is important to depersonalize your home as much as possible so that potential purchasers can vision how it would look if they lived there. Which means that you should put everything that you don’t need or use regularly away: i.e., clearing off the kitchen counters, tables, dressers, bookcase etc. as much as possible. Try to store miscellaneous small items that you need in boxes or storage bins when not in use.
- Fresh perspective Visualize yourself as a potential buyer that is viewing your home for the first time. What is your impression? Does it look clean, organized and appealing?
Although this is not a comprehensive guide, it will get you started in the right direction.
