Human beings are visual creatures. They like what they see and purchase it immediately. Even if some people don’t make a buying decision directly, they remember the look of the object and then revisit it later.
That’s exactly what residential builders have to do. You need to stage the property in question so buyers can imagine what their dream house would look like.
You can visit a wholesale furniture gallery or hire a painter to enhance the walls. Good staging is also a form of marketing or visual merchandising. The buyers can imagine themselves being in their dream home, and they can get some design tips too. But how do you stage a property? Here are the tips which will help you get started.
Eight Tips For Home Staging: All You Need To Know
Staging a home makes it much more attractive. Potential homebuyers will know what their house should look like. It gives a move-in feeling.
Here are some tips that you need to keep in mind.
#1 A clean home showcases to the buyers that you have spent enough time tidying up the space. Clean every part - the ceiling fans, walls, floor, kitchen cabinets, and anything you can view.
The tub should be free from any build-up, and there should be no stains on the floor. Hire a cleaning agency to do it for you.
#2 Say no to clutter! You don’t want the buyer to see a cluttered home. They don’t need to see a home which is not decorated beautifully. When you keep the place cluttered, the buyer feels that the home has less space.
#3 Get Rid of Personalized items. The buyer should only visualize themselves in the house. Do not keep anything that belongs to the previous owners or tenants. Put away the toys and hide the family photos.
#4 Get rid of any odor in the house. That’s easy! You get sprays to make the house look and smell fresh. Choose a room freshener with a pleasant smell. Jasmine, sandalwood, and lavender are some of the best fragrances.
#5 Focus on the paint and wallpaper of the room. If the walls are stained, or the wallpaper is torn, you must change it. If it’s a new property, you do not have to bother. But since you are staging the property, you could get creative with the walls. Choose some custom paint colours that will entice the customer.
#6 The flooring will do the trick. The buyer will probably look for a discount if the floor is old or looks cheap. They can do the floor independently, but give them something fresh and trendy.
Hardwood floors are always a favorite among buyers. But you could always use a carpet to make the living room and other rooms look elegant.
#7 When in doubt, change the lighting. Lighting can make a room appear larger and brighter. Lighting can make the rooms look inviting too. Get rid of all the broken fixtures. Your clients won’t like it!
#8 Furniture is the most important aspect of a house. If you are staging a property, buy furniture in bulk to deck up the space. Don’t opt for big furniture - get some elegant furniture that makes the space look inviting and larger.
Please stay away from cheap furniture too. You can buy the pieces in bulk but get quality furniture instead of shoddy ones. Arrange the furniture methodically and don’t overcrowd it.
