The first step to selling your Pickerington home? Staging it like a champ! The minute a buyer passes through your front door, you want them to fall in love with your home. To do this, you should follow our home staging tips below. Have any questions about specific details within your home? Give us a call to discuss your options.
Have a Porch? Make it Shine
Tidy up your front porch! Who doesn't love spending afternoons and early evenings out on the porch, enjoying the weather and pleasant conversation. Consider decorating your front door with a seasonal wreath, touching up the shutters on your windows, and purchasing a new doormat to invite potential buyers inside.
Cleaning & Repairs
This is the biggest part of staging your home. You absolutely have to get rid of all clutter. Consider having a garage sale or making a donation to a local charity. Go through every room of your home and get rid of all trash, loose papers, old clothing, and anything else that's taking up space.
Seriously, Clean EVERYTHING
This goes with decluttering. Hiring a professional cleaning service is often worth it, or at least dedicated a weekend to really making your home shine. There should be absolutely no dust, grime, dirt, loose pet hair, or any funny smells anywhere in your home.
Balance Furniture Accordingly
When you're staging, you want to complement the natural space and size of your home. Consider hiring a storage unit to house any extra large pieces of furniture that don't do your space justice.
It's All About the Details
Fill it with Light
Open all the blinds and shades, turn on extra lights, and consider opening the windows (if seasonally appropriate) to let the light in! Buyers want to see a home that's bright and inviting. Consider updating your porch or exterior lights as well. After all, you never know when buyers will do a night time drive by to see what your home looks like after dark!
