Did you know that staging your home before you put it on the market could actually increase your chances of attracting serious buyers? Fixing your house up to pique buyers’ interest without distracting them too much is an easy task that you can do yourself with a little help from the interior design experts at your consignment furniture store. Here are our room staging tips to help your house sell.
Clear Each Room of Clutter and Personal Items
The first tip to follow when staging your home's many rooms is to eliminate any clutter, such as papers, magazines, and pens and pencils, as well as any personal items like photos of your family or trinkets you've collected during your travels. The home should feel clean and neutral so the buyer can picture himself or herself living there.
Pack Up Your Kitchen and Bathrooms
Another important step to take when staging is to pack away all pots, pans, and dishware and the contents of your pantry and cabinets. Again, the home should look clean and distraction-free. Be sure to also put shampoos, soaps, and other toiletries away when preparing your bathrooms.
Offer a Tasty Treat to Realtors and Buyers
Who wouldn't love a delicious treat while exploring the many features of your home? Make your home memorable for those looking at it by baking brownies or placing a bowl of fruit in the kitchen for realtors and potential buyers to enjoy.
Know When to Invest in an Attractive Furniture Piece
Finally, once you've done some major cleaning you may find that your home could actually use a boost when it comes to furniture or accessories, such as artwork. If you need to enhance the look of a room with an affordable yet attractive item, then head into your furniture consignment store. Consignment stores are also a great place to take any furniture you decide to purge during the staging process.
