When staging your home ready for sale, it’s important to create a luxurious and inviting atmosphere that will appeal to potential buyers and allow them to envision themselves in that space.  It is important to remember that every client has different preferences, so aiming for a general but welcoming atmosphere is ideal. Here are some tips to stage your property:

I. Lighting the home: Open curtains and blinds to let in as much natural light as possible. Remove heavy drapes or replace them with sheer ones to allow as much light as possible to flood throughout the house. Don’t forget to turn on the lights!

II. Showcase the view: If your home offers impressive views of the ocean, mountains, or golf courses, highlight these features by tailoring the environment, positioning the furniture to draw the eye to the view.

III. Less is more: Keeping the space tidy by removing personal items, excess furniture, and knick-knacks to create a clean and spacious feel. Clear countertops, tables, and shelves to allow buyersto envision their own belongings in the space.

IV. Neutralize: Opt for neutral paint colors on the walls and consider replacing any bold or outdated wallpaper. This will help create a blank canvas for buyers to imagine their own style and decor.

V. Create comfortable living areas: Arrange furniture in a way that promotes conversation and relaxation. Use high-quality, comfortable furnishings to create a luxurious and inviting atmosphere.

VI. Attention to detail and setting the mood: Ensure that all fixtures, hardware, and appliances are clean and in good working condition. Replace any outdated or worn-out items or consider repainting to give a fresh and updated look. Even things like a fresh scent that mimics the environment and some  soothing music can help the potential buyer to relax and feel at home in the space.

VII. Get it ready for show time: Before each viewing, thoroughly clean the entire home, including floors, windows, bathrooms, and kitchens. Ensure that every corner looks spotless and well-maintained to make a strong, positive impression on potential buyers.
