Staging your Edmonton home is one way to appeal to as many Edmonton home buyers as possible. A well-staged Edmonton home can boost more money in sales and a whole lot of confidence in you.
Here are some tips for you to follow in staging your Edmonton home.
Time to Go
When staging an Edmonton house, any emotional attachment to the Edmonton property must be cut. Although there are times when a seller is still living in the Edmonton house while for sale, it should not look that way to the potential buyers. Remove as many personal affects as possible such as family pictures, memorabilia, knick-knacks, etc.
Let the potential Edmonton home buyers focus on the space when they go through your house. Remember that much of the value of a house is the space. Show that you have extensive space and storage by packing away unnecessary stuff. De-clutter closets and drawers so that those areas do not look crowded. Remove unwanted furniture or anything that adds to the home’s confusion. These things could be stored somewhere.
Nothing beats a clean Edmonton home so when staging an Edmonton property, everything needs to be sparkling! Power-wash the siding, get rid of cobwebs, any dust, stains, and scratches must be removed. Touch up paint if you haven't repainted. Spend a bit of money for professional carpet cleaning. They will bring your tired and dirty carpets back to life!
Set the Stage
After all the cleaning and the clutter have been tucked away, it is now time for setting the Edmonton house. Edmonton homeowners must go through each room and arrange the furniture to present the space in the best way possible and also make each room look like what it was designed to be used for.
Hiring a Professional
When a seller is in doubt about his or her ability to stage, there is always the option of hiring a professional Edmonton home stager. Homeowners must ensure that the person they are hiring is a certified professional. Edmonton home stagers can be hired for a wide range of staging services, from consultation to a complete enhancement. Speak with your Realtor for references.
It will take time, effort and a whole lot of elbow grease to stage a home properly. But if you dedicate yourself, the end result will bear great fruit - a quicker sale at a higher price!!
