So it’s time to sell your home, and you’ve probably been told you should stage your home. But it’s important to not make some common home staging mistakes, or it could cost you money or even a sale.
At Set to Show, our team of experts will work with you to make sure your home is perfectly arranged to woo prospective buyers. Here are some staging mistakes that can easily happen if you don’t hire a professional home staging company:
1. Don’t Neglect the Small Stuff
Furniture position is important to direct your buyer through the space and draw the eye to the key selling and architectural features. The details communicate quality, design, and warmth. This can include perfectly staged furniture (chairs, bookshelves, etc.) and material selections (area rugs and curtains).
At Set to Show, we can choose the right pieces to complement every room in your home while creating a welcoming atmosphere. When done correctly, these pieces can help distinguish your home from others the prospective buyer will see.
2. Stage the House For Your Prospective Buyer
When you are selling your home, you want to create a space that allows a prospective buyer to imagine their life in the home. In fact, you’ll realize many of the people interested in your home are young couples ready to start their families. Imagine you, but 20-30 years earlier. Their needs and tastes are different from your current ones, and in fact, the design trends are also different.
Your home was well lived in and created tons of memories for you and your family, but it is crucial to create a space the future owners can picture themselves making memories in.
If you’re looking for an unbiased opinion to come into your home and make suggestions, look no further than the experienced Set to Show team. We will come into your home and make recommendations to help you sell your home faster and for more money.
3. Don’t Forget the Deferred Maintenance
We all hate this, but you can’t forget to have your furnace or other mechanical systems in working order when a prospect comes to tour the house. You’ll also want to make sure the windows work properly and the basement is dry. These larger maintenance items will kill a deal, so don’t wait for an inspector to tell you that you should have addressed this.
4. Put Your Best Foot Forward
See your open house as if it were a job interview. You wouldn’t show up to an interview dressed in workout clothes, looking less than professional. With this tactic, you won’t get the job! The same can be said about the sale of your home. When it’s time to let prospective buyers into your home, you want to make sure it’s clean, well-kept, and looking its best.
