3 ways to stage your home for sale

If you’re like most homeowners trying to sell your Phoenix home in this booming seller’s market, you may find you’re competing with other listings in your neighborhood. One of the best ways to make your home stand out among the competition is to stage it. Staging is the art of making your home look more appealing to potential buyers and can be the beneficial extra touch that persuades buyers to buy now! Here are 3 ways to stage your home for sale.

1.) Cute Curb Appeal: The exterior of your home is the first thing buyers will see, so it’s important to make a good first impression. You’ll want to make certain your walkways are well lit and free of debris and spider webs.  Spraying for weeds is also important, especially if your home features a desert landscape or a nicely maintained lawn. Want to make a statement the moment a buyer pull ups to the curb? Try adding a new coat of paint to the front door and adding a new welcome mat to invite would be buyers into their new prospective home.

2.) Windows that Wow: Nothing opens up a room more than beautiful, natural lighting. If you take the time to clean the windows in your home, you’ll allow more light in which makes rooms seem brighter and more open. As an added bonus, clean windows can show off a beautiful desert or mountain view.

3.) Cut Clutter: Clutter is a home’s worst enemy. It makes a space seem smaller and can distract homebuyers from some of your home’s nicer features like spacious closets or an open great room plan. Anything from too many pictures on the wall to cluttered kitchen countertops to stacks of mail can turn potential buyers off. Start small by going room to room removing unnecessary items from view and storing them away. A tidy, de-cluttered home can help a potential buyer better visualize their own furniture in the space.
