Home Staging Tricks to Consider When Selling Your Home

When planning to sell your home, you want to make it as presentable as it is in order to attract buyers.  While it’s a good idea to hire a home stager in order to make your house look best, the disadvantage is it can cost you a significant amount of money. But the good news is you are able to achieve great results by following some of home stagers’ tricks without having to hire them. Take a look at the following:


Clear it out and clean it up


This one is an automatic protocol. When preparing your home for sale, clear it out and clean it up beforehand. You have to get rid of those clutters and other unnecessary personal items. It will make your property look better than the house down the block.



Another tip is to depersonalize your house. You will havea hard time attracting buyers if it reflects your personal style from floor to ceiling and all over the walls. Try to remove the photos of you and your family so that prospective buyers are able to picture themselves out in your house.


Update your bathroom

A bathroom renovation prior to selling may involve a considerable amount of money. But you can do smal but smart changes that can make a big difference in your house. For example, if you wantto change a dated tile, you can do so by painting it. Coat the tiles with a high-adhesion primer first. Then, brush it on with a special ceramic epoxy covering. This is a much cheaper alternative compared to buying a new one.


Pay attention to design details

After decluttering unncessary items, try to create simple yet elegant designs. Try to remember the basic of designs like groupings of odd numbers always do the trick.


Pay attention to odors

This is one factor that may not be obvious to you as you might already get used to your environment. Have a trusted friend for example to do a walkthrough in your house and give you an honest assessment like how it smells. Some of the things that might want to take a look at is your carpets and upholstered pieces.


Consider landscaping

As you are presenting your house to potential buyers, you are also making a great first impression. With this, don’t forget that the facade is the first part of your house that anyone will see. Try to consider having a little landscaping and putting potted plants around the front door for a welcome charm to your entryway.
