7 staging tips to sell your home

   1.  Create a Balanced Space -To make a room appear bigger, paint it the same color as the adjacent room. If you have a small kitchen and dining room, a seamless look will make both rooms feel like one big space.  

2.     2.Don't Overcrowd Rooms - Don't overcrowd a room with furniture that is too large for the space; it will only make the room appear small and cramped. However, don't leave a room too barren either. In a narrow space, shelves can add depth to make a room feel larger.

3.     3.Upgrade With Eco-Friendly Materials -Use eco-friendly materials when upgrading your home for sale. Buyers are willing to pay more for a home that is considered green. If you're on a budget, consider cork flooring. It's extremely durable and costs about half the price of traditional hardwood flooring.

4.   4.  Create Serene Bedrooms - Create a relaxing setting with luxurious linens and soft colors that will make a potential homebuyer want to sit back and relax.

5.    5. Update With Paint - If your doors and casing look old and outdated, give them a fresh coat of sparkling white paint. It will make your whole house look cleaner and more contemporary.

6.   6.  Invest in Contemporary Appliances - If your kitchen appliances are outdated, invest in a new cooktop, stove or refrigerator. Studies show that sellers recoup every penny they spend on appliances.

7.     7.Update Outdated Bathrooms - Consider having tacky, outdated bathroom tile re-glazed. It costs much less than replacements and can make your bathroom look brand new. Tip: To remove mold from grout, try a simple solution of bleach and water. If that doesn't work, try staining the grout.

I hope that these tips will help you get started in preparing your home for sale.  I you or anyone you know is looking to buy or sell a home.  I would be happy to discuss.
