4 Proven Ways to Stage Your Home for Potential Buyers

By March 14, 2016 No Comments

When having your home shown in an open house, or privately to a potential buyer, it’s crucial to put forth an impressive display so the interested party can envision themselves in your home. If you’re not sure where to start, we have some ways to polish your home for the buying market.

The Entry

Before your open house this Saturday, you should take a good long look at your entry into your home, mainly your door, and look for things such as fading paint, water damage, or material rot. Keep in mind that this is going to be the first thing the buyer sees when coming to your home, having a welcoming entry is absolutely key. If there is any visible damage to your home or your door simply needs a lift of color, take care of it right away.

Opt for Neutral Colors

If you want to sell your home, you need to prep it for its new owner. A key part of this is to paint your walls a neutral color, such as white or beige. You want a potential buyer to envision the potential that they see in the home. Therefore, you want to make it look like a blank canvas eagerly waiting a new color and design input. Also, lighter colors help with the perception of natural light. Homeowners have been known to spend thousands to enhance the natural light capabilities of their homes, so anything you can do beforehand to give your home the look of more natural light, the better.

A Fresh Coat of Paint Instead of a Full Renovation

There are ways to get a big return on investment without spending a whole lot of money. By revamping certain areas of your home with a fresh coat of paint can bring on a whole new level of elegance at a low cost. This is particularly relevant in the kitchen, where painting cabinets a white, or off-white color can revamp the kitchen for a fraction of the cost of new cabinetry.
