Are you planning on selling your Austin Texas home? If so, staging is one of the best things that you can do before listing your home because a staged home provides the buyer with an idea for how the space that your home offers can be used.
In this article, I will provide you with several staging tips that will help you to sell your home FAST.
Tip #1 – De-Clutter Your Home
Before you start staging your home, you should “purge” your home of all the excess things that you’re not using right now.
This step is important because, with fewer items in your home, the house will naturally look like it has more space and this will be attractive to home buyers.
When decluttering your home, it’s best to create piles for things that you want to keep, donate, and throw away because this will help you to eliminate the problem of taking things that you don’t want from one house to the other.
Tip #2 – Depersonalize Your Home
You may have enjoyed decorating your home over the years but, the reality when it comes to listing your property is that you should “de-personalize” the property before listing it. Why? Personalization in a home can distract a buyer and keep them focused on your personal “stamp” that you left in the home instead of dreaming about what they could do to the home after moving in.
During the process of de-personalizing your home, you should be focusing on doing things like painting walls neutral colors and removing anything that will make a buyer think of you. This includes removing:
- Family photos
Once your home is de-personalized, you can move forward with confidence that buyers will be able to see themselves living there and won’t be distracted by your personal taste or decorating choices.
Tip #3 – Return Rooms in Your Home to Their Intended Use
Last of all, but most important, if you have a room in your home that you converted into a home gym or office, you should return that room to its original intended use.
Following through with this step is important because having rooms in your home as they originally were intended to be used will help buyers to dream about how they would use those spaces instead of having to see past how a converted room could be used.
