If you plan on selling your home quickly, then it’s vital you present your home in the best possible light. When buyers tour your house, you’ll want to make sure you leave a good impression.
One of the most important parts of your home that you’ll want to stage is the living room. Here are five living room staging tips to keep in mind:
Do a thorough cleaning of the living room. In fact, hire a professional cleaner. Although a bit of dust shouldn’t dissuade anyone from buying your home, it does leave a poor impression.
Clutter not only makes your home feel dirty and disorganized, it also makes it seem like there’s a lack of storage space. Clear your shelves and coffee tables of magazines, mail, and other items that can be considered clutter.
Buyers don’t want to feel like they’re walking through the home of a stranger. They want to be able to imagine themselves living there. Remove all personal items, such as the family photographs you have hanging on the wall or adorning your fireplace mantle.
If you’ve already moved out, then you need to furnish your home. An empty living room won’t be very inviting. It will also make the space feel smaller than it is. Furniture can help buyers see how they can take advantage of the living room’s space.
Proper lighting is needed to showcase your living room’s every detail. Poor lighting will make it feel smaller and dirtier. Buyers won’t want to spend time in a living room that’s dark and uninviting. Check to make sure all lightbulbs work and add light fixtures if needed.
