Once you’ve decided on your new Sego home, all that’s left to do is sell your current one. And this is where staging comes in. Effective staging isn’t just for show — in fact, staging your home the right way will ensure that you sell it as quickly as possible and maximize its sales price. Take a look at a few of our favorite tips and tricks when it comes to the art of staging.
Declutter: First and foremost, it’s crucial to go through every room to clean up the “clutter zones,” aka areas filled with personal keepsakes, fusty decor, and things to throw away. Pack up or discard everything to make the space feel open and inviting. (This also makes moving much easier!)
Make Quick Fixes: The next thing to do is look for the “quick fixes” — removing old area rugs to show off the hardwood floors, taking down curtains and cleaning windows, updating lampshades, replacing light bulbs, rearranging furniture, etc. Remember, even little adjustments make a big impact.
Decide on Furniture: It’s time to make a final decision on what furniture should stay and what should go. Try to see your home through a buyer’s eyes. Keep color, style, and function in mind to make the most confident and informed choice.
Depersonalize: Buyers want to look at your home and envision making it their own, so make sure to “depersonalize.” Neutralizing colored walls with trendy grays or off-whites will make your home look like an open canvas that’s ready to be personalized. Mirrors on the wall also help to create a wide open feel.
Fresh Look: The majority of potential buyers see your home in photos online before they see it in person, so everything you do should be about making that crucial first impression a positive one. Touches that evoke a fresh and clean feeling like bright flowers, folded towels in the bathroom, and bowls of fruit in the kitchen.
When you understand where the eye goes first, as well as what’s pleasant and positive and what needs a change, you can make the best adjustments to not only impress buyers, but win them over. We can’t wait to work with you to get you moved into your new Sego home in Daybreak in South Jordan.
