Hello beautiful people,
Make a Buyer's Summer Love Last with
Summer Home Staging Tips
1. Approachability is everything.
Often times, nothing says “single and ready to mingle” more than your outward demeanor. The same goes for your home. Before you give buyers your digits – your address, that is - make sure that your house number is clearly visible from the street where potential buyers will approach from. Also, you can also help to boost your home’s approachability by purchasing a stylish new welcome mat. Remember, your home looking good = you feeling good about the sale!
2. Proper hygiene is a must.
When it comes to summer home hygiene, think curb appeal and lawn maintenance. With a home on the market, there is not enough pruning that you can do! Don’t wait for word of a showing to mow the lawn or trim the hedges. You never know when Mr. or Miss Right Buyer will drive by. In the same way that people try to maximize their summertime glow, make sure to maximize your lawn’s summertime green and keep your garden free from weeds or other debris.
Remember, beauty is not only skin deep. So, after you’ve spruced up the outside of your home, focus on what’s inside. Be ready for the right buyer by giving your home the spa treatment from top to bottom. Think of your windows as your smile and make sure they’re sparkling bright to let the summer sun in.
3. Getting “decked out” is a good thing.
You want to show summer suitors that your home is beautiful from the inside-out. So, after you’ve invited them in and they’ve got to know a little more about what’s inside, WOW them by staging your patio or deck.
It is a great way to increase your home’s square footage or at least make it appear larger. Set up a well-dressed table and chairs or cozy corner where potential buyers can envision themselves relaxing all summer long. Summery pillows and lightly-scented candles will add a nice ambiance as well.
