When a homeowner thinks about putting their house on the market, of course they think about finances, timeframe and pricing but more importantly they think about the buyers first impression. Before contacting a real estate agent for a listing appointment, try to think a few months in advance about your house being picture ready.
Over 90% of buyers search online for houses that fit their price range. There are some basic staging tips that do not cost much money, such as cleaning, removing the clutter by packing, donating or trashing items that are no longer usable. Also, making the room smell good by using fragrance products or opening windows. It is recommended to use a neutral color palette as well as cohesive decor. Emphasize the features in a room by using mirrors and lighting. It is important to make each space feel inviting and comfortable as possible so when the right buyer comes along, they won't second guess their decision to purchase your home.
