Show off your home’s true potential !!

Staging your home to show off its true potential is necessary when you are trying to sell your home. You must keep in the front of your mind that first impressions are important. I know that I have said this before, but I can’t stress to you enough how important it really is.

You want your home to flow; clutter will distract the buyer and potentially turn them off from even considering your home. One of the first things that should be done is putting a fresh coat of paint on the walls, this helps immediately. When doing so, make sure that you choose a neutral color.

Put down new vinyl tile, this will help bring life back to a tired kitchen, bathroom or laundry room floor. This is inexpensive and you can do it if you choose to.

Stage each room for what its purpose is you don’t want a potential buyer to be confused about what a room is for. Make sure that all the clutter is removed from the room and then stage it as a home office.

Get rid of unpleasant pet odors, this can leave a negative first impression to a potential buyer. Get rid of old carpet that has offensive smells, and replace it with something else, and paint the walls to match.

People tend to love bright, open and airy rooms. They don’t like something that looks dark or dingy open up the shades and let the light in! You can even paint the walls a lighter neutral color to help lighten up the room. By doing this you are increasing the chances of selling your home.

Do you have lots of storage space; people love storage space so show it off. They will open your closets to check out the space so be sure that you have cleaned the clutter from these areas also. Remember, buyers like to feel a nice flow in your rooms, so you can help with this by replacing a square table with a round one; this gives the sense that you have more room to move around and helps to create a good flow to your home.

If you find that you don’t have the time to do this yourself, you may want to consider hiring a professional Austin TX home stager. The cost of hiring one should always be outweigh by what you will be getting in return and that is a quicker sale and more money for your home.
