Real Estate: Home Staging Guide

You’ve updated, flooring, you’ve painted, and everything has been renovated. Now it’s time to put your home on the market. In order to get buyers interested in your home, proper staging is key. According to Zillow, here are some of the best home staging tips you should follow.

1 // Have Curb Appeal

The first thing a home buyer is going to see is the outside of your home, so make sure it looks great! Ensure the lawn is well manicured, your porch lighting is updated, and your plants are bright and inviting.

 

2 // Bring Hygge Into Your Home

Hygge (pronounced hue-guh) is a Danish word used to describe a feeling or moment that is especially cozy and special. Bring that feeling into your home by using natural lighting to brighten up your home, light subtly scented candles in the house like vanilla or lavender, turn on quiet music, and maybe even have some cookies or a candy bowl ready for your potential buyers!

 

3 // Play With Space

Great floor space is one of the most sought after amenities when buyers are looking for a new home. To make your home feel spacious, Zillow suggests hanging mirrors to reflect windows and room openings and hang your drapes high.

 

4 // It’s All In The Details

If your house has unconventional features instead of trying to hide them, play them up. For example, Zillow suggests turning open space under a staircase into a reading nook or dressing up the mantel on a giant fireplace!
