Tips To Help You Devise A Smart Approach To Home Staging
Home staging is all about prepping and decking a property to facilitate a quick sale. Homebuyers would only be interested in a property if it impresses them and only then can one proceed further. In an attempt to impress a homebuyer, you shouldn’t go out of bounds. You shouldn’t take a contrarian stand either. Don’t presume that your property would be liked by all in an as is condition. The secret to a quick sale at a fair price is appropriate home staging. You shouldn’t overdo it and you shouldn’t avoid it completely either.
Here are some tips that can help you devise a smart approach to home staging.
- You may be tempted to use a lot of stuff for home staging. Don’t opt for anything and everything you fancy. Don’t settle for the most basic amenities or fixtures, appliances or furniture either. You must strike a balance. Have some of the basic amenities or installations and have some unique fixtures that would impress the potential homebuyers. Overdoing or stressing too much on luxury amenities will backfire. Focusing too much on simple installations would fail to make an indelible impression. Strike a balance.
- You must bear in mind the advantages and disadvantages of every room. Some rooms are large and some are small. Some are midsized. You must remember to make smaller rooms look larger and larger rooms look sufficiently spacious. Use different kinds of furniture in smaller rooms so they take up the wall space and make the rooms look larger. When it comes to larger rooms, you can keep them vacant because the large space will make it easier for homebuyers to imagine how they would like to set up the place. Don’t leave small rooms vacant because they would look smaller. A seven feet by eight feet room or even ten feet by eleven feet room would look smaller than it actually is. Make use of a cabinet, bed, table and even a cupboard if you want to make the room look more satiating.
- Always play with the natural light and use some smart artificial lights. The lighting sets the mood in a place. Use it to your advantage. Make sure that no area remains unlit or dark. Don’t go overboard with too many lights. Don’t use flashy lights. Use bright enough lights but ensure subtlety.
Home staging is all about showing what a property is and leaving enough room for imagination so the homebuyers can think of what the property can be.
