When you’re selling your home in Lake City or a nearby community, it’s important that you stage it properly so that potential buyers are able to envision themselves living in it.
But where do you start?
3 Staging Tips From the Pros
Staging your home is an art – but don’t worry if you’re not particularly artistic in this way. You can follow these tips to be successful (and then have a friend or family member come by to make minor adjustments or suggestions).
#1: Move Furniture Away From the Walls
It’s a common misconception that pushing all your furniture as close to the walls as possible will make each room look bigger. In reality, pulling your furniture at least 6 to 8 inches away from all the walls tricks the eye into making a room seem bigger. Give it a shot and see if you feel differently about a room’s size!
#2: Make Sure Everything’s Spotless
You want potential buyers to see your home as easy to maintain, and the best way to do that is to show it to them when it’s been perfectly maintained. You should go so far as to getting all the spots out of the sink, dusting the tops of picture frames on the walls, and scrubbing the baseboards (especially in the kitchen). Buyers look everywhere!
#3: Put Fresh Towels in the Bathroom
A favorite trick of professional home-stagers is to turn the bathroom into a spa-like environment by putting out brand-new towels that you’ve never used. When people leave after a tour, put the towels away so nobody makes the mistake of using them; bring them out next time someone’s coming. Besides, you’ll have nice, new towels to use in your next home.
