Are you planning to sell your home?

Are you planning to sell your home? When you’re getting ready to put your house on the market, there’s a number of ways to stage your property for showings and entice potential. You can prepare your private residence in a way that appeals to the widest range of possible buyers by making your home look and feel good. 

Steer clear of these common mistakes so you can sell your house quickly and make more money in the deal. Here are 5 things to avoid when staging your home.

1. Don’t Overdo It 

Decorating dull areas of your home with lots of décor will only create clutter, which in turn will distract buyers from the positive attributes of your home. You want to be enhancing your home's marketable qualities. If you put too many things in a room, it’ll seem smaller, so opt for simple decor and always choose too little over too much.  

2. Don’t Overwhelm with Extreme Colors or Patterns

A house full of bright colors or patterns can be a major distraction for potential buyers, so make it easy for them to imagine life in the space with neutral walls and floors. If you show a house with bright blue walls or argyle floors, for instance, the buyer will only be thinking about the time and money required to get rid of them. 

3. Don’t Stage the Whole House  

A home where every room is decorated won’t help buyers picture themselves living there. Always leave some spaces untouched and open for interpretation. If you stage more than the kitchen, living room, master bedroom and bathrooms, potential buyers may feel bombarded by your taste in furniture and décor and have a difficult time picturing themselves in your home. 

4. Don’t Forget to Clean 

A dirty place won’t get you far with potential buyers, so present a spotless house. This makes a world of difference. If you’re hoping to make a good impression on a budget, scrub the house from top to bottom and shampoo the carpet rather than letting bad smells linger or messy areas stay cluttered. 

5. Don’t Leave Personal Items Behind  

A house filled with the previous owner’s belongings will make potential buyers feel like the place belongs to another person, so get rid of all remnants that suggest someone else once lived there. If personal items like family photos are still hanging around the house, put them in storage or somewhere out of sight.
