Staging Your Home in Nanaimo

Home staging is one of the most important steps you can take to increase the selling price of your property and get it sold quicker. Staging not only results in a faster sale but also tends to increase the home’s value too. Wondering if staging a home would need you to spend a lot? Thankfully, staging a home to sell does not require you to spend a lot of money - just making smart decisions. You can make some simple and specific changes that will add value to your home and entice the buyers who come for viewings. Presenting your home right is the most important aspect when selling a home. It makes sense for sellers to put some time and effort into staging their home as it will help to project the house better to the potential buyer and thus sell faster. Let's have a look at the best staging tips that would require little money to prepare our home for sale:

Make a good first impression

The first thing a buyer is going to see when they walk up to your house is the front entrance, so you want it to make a strong positive impression. The entrance of the house should be well lit, clutter-free and welcoming Stage important rooms Which rooms are the most important to focus on in the house? Not all rooms are required to stage when it comes to selling a property. Rooms that have the biggest potential to influence buyers need your focus and efforts. Staging the living room is usually the most important for buyers, followed by staging the master bedroom and staging the kitchen. Spend more time on more important rooms like the living room, master bedroom and kitchen and less time on rooms like store rooms and bathrooms

Get rid of clutter

Clutter makes the space look small. It eats up space and space is what sells. Make your home look bigger and brighter by cleaning the house. A clean spacious house is more desirable to the buyer who is viewing the home. Clean like you have never cleaned before. Get the carpet professionally cleaned. Kitchen cleanliness is vital to staging

De-personalize the space

One of the primary objectives of home staging is to help prospective buyers visualize the space as their own. When the buyers look around a house, they try to visualize it as their own. Try to tuck away all the personal photos and wall hangings away. Keep clothes stored away and out of sight, and clear bathroom counters of toiletries. Remove anything overtly personal. Allow buyers to envision themselves living there

Patch and repair

Home staging is an important time to tackle the defects, scratches and holes that distract the buyers

Add freshness

You can add freshness into a space by keeping well-placed plants. Plants add life to a space and create a calming effect. It is also a cost-effective way in home-staging to brighten up the space

Let there be light

Dark rooms are sad rooms. Brighten up by letting as much light shine in the house as possible. Open the blinds on all of the windows, which in addition to letting in more light will also make rooms seem bigger.

Rearrange your furniture

You want there to be as much open, walkable space as possible. This helps buyers navigate the space, and also helps them better visualize their own furniture in each room. Stage your home right keeping in mind the above tips and you should have no problem selling your home quickly. Once you know you have done everything you can, to show your home in the best light possible, you can sit back and wait for the right buyer to stop by.
