Is one of your New Year’s resolutions putting your home on the market?  Here in the Plano, Texas area, home staging can help set your home apart from others.  First impressions matter in Real Estate, and staging your home could help it to sell faster, and sell at the best possible price.

When you list a home for sale, it is no longer “your home,” but becomes a product to sell.  Therefore, it is important to pay attention to detail and stage your home to highlight its best features.  Here are five easy tips on staging your property to maximize value.

Depersonalize

This step is very important because it allows the potential buyer to visualize their family living in the home.  Pack and store away any personal items, such as family photos, trophies, collections, and toys.

Light, Bright, and Airy

Making your home bright creates a warm, welcoming feel.  Add a fresh coat of neutral paint, clean the windows, open the shades, and add bright light bulbs.

Organize Closets

Storage space is an important feature to a buyer.  Pack up and store any items that you are not currently using and leave as much empty space as possible.

Odor Free

A bad odor, or even a strong odor, is a big turnoff for potential buyers.  It is best to maintain a fresh, neutral odor.

Curb Appeal

The potential homebuyer’s first impression is based on curb appeal.  Many buyers decide whether they even want to see inside based on the outside.  Maintain landscaping by mowing, trimming hedges, and clear all walkways of debris, such as sticks and fallen leaves.  Boost color by adding season-appropriate potted plants near the entryway.

These are just some of the easy ways you can prepare your home in a visually appealing manner.  Home staging is a fantastic way to increase sale price while decreasing listing time.  Staging helps to depersonalize the home so that homebuyers can visualize themselves in it.
