5 Tips on How to Stage a Home

Whether you’re looking to downsize or prepare for a move into a long-term care community, you’ll want to make sure you put your best foot forward when it comes time to sell your house. Even in the current market where houses aren’t taking long to sell at all, you can still get the most value out of your home by making it as attractive as possible for buyers.

In fact, realtors say proper staging can increase the price of a home by 5% to 10%. Centers Health Care has five tips on how to stage your home to get it to sell fast.

  1. Declutter

You want your space to be as open as possible to make it look larger, so you’ll want to clear out not only papers and anything else lying around but also remove unnecessary furniture and even some books out of your bookshelf. You may want to store these items at a friend or relative’s house or in a rental storage unit in order to get them off of the property.

  1. Furniture Rental

If your furniture is too big for your space, you may want to temporarily move it or sell it and replace it with a rental piece that would be more pleasing to potential buyers.

  1. Make Your Kitchen a Social Space

A kitchen should be functional but also be viewed as a place to socialize. Keep the counters clear and the table set for a meal.

  1. Bathroom Tips

The bathroom should look like it’s not being used. You want the potential buyer to envision themselves in there getting ready in the morning and not feel like they’re in someone else’s space.

  1. Remove Your Style

Removing personal effects from around the home (things like picture frames on end tables and children’s drawings on the refrigerator) can also help those looking envision the house as theirs instead of being a visitor in your home. Think classic and simple with neutral colors and the occasional accent.
