If you are getting into the real estate market for the first time, it can be an exciting and even overwhelming experience. Selling your home may not happen overnight, but with a little help, your first-time home selling experience can become a lot simpler. One of the most important parts of the home selling process is home preparation or home staging. Preparing your home the right way can make a real difference in how quickly it will sell. Check out these 5 easy tips for home staging so you can have the best and easiest selling home on the market.
1. Accessorizing is Key:
To make a great first impression on potential buyers, you want to ensure your home is accessorized the right way. For a more attractive and pleasing atmosphere, consider the way you group your accessories, particularly in odd numbers and groups of threes. You should aim for more of a triangular shape with a point for more aesthetic appeal and also change up the scale with varying heights and widths. This will stand out and be more pleasing to look at than just simple straight lines.
2. Go Big or Go Home:
When selling your home, you want to make it feel as big and spacious as possible. One way to make to make enclosed spaces appear roomier is to paint all of the walls the same color as an adjacent room. Incorporating this technique will create a smooth look that will make the rooms look like one big space. For even more visual space, consider painting the walls in each room the same color as the drapery.
3. The Perfect Lighting:
For a warmer and more inviting home, you should be mindful of the type of lighting you choose to install. You can attain and maintain the perfect lighting in your home by installing a total of 100 watts of light for every 50 square feet. By doing this and also including ambient, accent and task lighting in each room, you will be able to achieve a complete and pleasing look that will attract all buyers.
4. Furniture Placement:
You can also make your home appear more spacious with the way your furniture is arranged. To achieve the most spacious look possible, consider placing the furniture away from walls as well as grouping chairs and sofas in snug groups. Even more, consider arranging your pieces in a way that there is a clear walkway in each room. This will make rooms feel much less cramped and crowded and easier to maneuver through.
5. A Clean Home is a Happy Home:
Last, and probably the most important step in the home staging process is ensuring your home is clean and tidy. If your home has too much furniture or furniture that is big and bulky, this could create a more cluttered look and feel and be distracting to potential buyers. To eliminate this possibility, consider removing needless pieces and appliances to create more free space and make your home appear neater and cleaner.
