Fall offers a great time and a vivid palette to sell your home. Fall brings forward that colorful season to stage your home like the experts without spending a premium by following five easy tips, according to the pros at HOME Real Estate.
“We bring the qualified buyers, and with some expert staging tips, you will see results of your staging efforts in the offer price,” a HOME agent said.
The return on these simple fall staging tips may well be worth it on closing day, so follow these top 5 expert tips for fall home staging on a budget:
1. A welcome home
From the minute a potential buyer walks up to your door, extend that best possible welcome through a lovely fall grapevine wreath on a master door with a new accent color. A plantar of harvest-hue chrysanthemums sets the stage. This can be a lasting first impression for the potential buyers from the curb to walking in your front door.
2. Warm ambiance
Typically we all have too much stuff, so reduce the amount of items in any given room and a potential buyer can better visualize their life in your space. Eliminate clutter to showcase a room’s features and pick out a few key pieces to create an open living space that accentuates advantages and create a warm and inviting ambiance.
3. Make it sparkle
Most home buyers want a move-in ready home where they can visualize their new life. So be sure to take the time and care to give your home the best cleaning and shine possible. The experts recommend well-positioned candles and flowers to emotionally connect with potential buyers. Again, those muted tones and scents of fall harvest can enhance each room after a deep cleaning.
Keep in mind you are selling your house, not your stuff. Eliminate family photos, word art, or toys and sporting equipment. Instead showcase select art and home décor items to accommodate a potential buyer’s personality. Your home’s listing will also be online, so depersonalization is essential for those interior photos.
Uplift your space with a fresh coat of paint and new carpet as they can be two of the quickest and least expensive upgrades. If carpet is beyond the budget, an inexpensive but beautiful new area rug can quickly change the look of a space or mask older floors in need of repair.
Update bathroom and kitchen cabinet knobs for a unique and fresh look.
