Stage Your Home
Every good real estate agent knows that the first impression is everything. Where do you want the attention to be focused when a buyer first walks into your house? The kitchen? The living room? The high ceilings? Staging your home is a marketing tool that can quicken your selling process. Be sure to declutter and depersonalize your home before you begin to stage your home. Yes, that means taking down the goofy photo booth pictures from the fridge. Continuity and cleanliness is the key to staging success. Consider hiring a professional home stager or an interior designer if you’re not the creative type and can’t get the Feng Shui just right. Hiring a professional is not a waste of money, but instead is an investment in the selling process of your home.
Get a leg up on the competition with these extra tips and tricks on how to stage your home in time for selling season.
Create Curb Appeal
Remember when I said first impressions matter? Well, it all starts when the buyer pulls into the driveway. Curb appeal is the reason why we cut our lawns, trim our trees, and paint the front door a trendy colour. Make sure your lawn is intact, gutters are straight and cleaned out, and wash your windows from the winter snowmelt.
Curb appeal landscaping should be a high priority when selling your home. Entice buyers by adding hanging plants or find a large potter for flowers to boost the likelihood of selling your home quicker. Many homeowners believe that painting the front door or dressing it up creates a more welcoming feeling for guests – the same goes for buyers. A can of paint can run a homeowner around $25, but can add so much more value to the overall price of your home. Try painting your door, window trim and shutters to boost your curb appeal.

Paint Your Walls A Trendy Colour
Let’s debunk the myth that painting your house a neutral colour is more likely to have your house sell quicker.
