Staging Tips for Your Home Sale

Before you list your Miami-Dade County home, you want to make sure it looks its best. Not only will staging your home help you sell faster, but it could also net you a significantly higher price! Don't let a little simple home-staging be the difference between selling your home and losing out on hard-earned equity. Use these staging tips as a starting point, and give our team a call for some more personalized pointers!

The Exterior

The outside of your home is the first thing buyers will see, so make sure it's nothing less than impressive. Clean up, decorate, and up that curb appeal.

Create curb appeal

How's your home look from the outside? Is your siding dirty and paint chipped? Grass overgrown and garden filled with weeds? Give your exterior a little TLC, and make sure to take care of any landscaping and maintenance concerns.

Make your porch welcoming

Even if you have a smaller porch, there's still potential to make it cozy and inviting. Throw out your old welcome mat and replace it with a fresh one, dust off any outdoor furniture you have, and throw out a few potted plants for some decoration.

Spruce up outdoor areas

Here in the Miami-Dade County area, the weather is pretty perfect year-round. Buyers are going to be searching for homes that offer ample outdoor space, so make your yard shine and add in a few updates to show off its full potential.

Cleaning & Repairs

Nothing turns off a buyer like persistent maintenance problems, lingering repair projects, or a home that's just not clean! Be sure to take care of any easily preventable issues well-beforehand.  

Finish repair projects

The last thing a buyer wants it to inherit your old to-do list when they move in. If you've been putting off fixing that leaky faucet or patching up chips in the paint, now is the time to do it. 

Clear out the clutter

You're going to need to kick off packing anyway so get a head start and start clearing out extra furniture, over-stuffed closets, and decor. Try donating unwanted items to a good cause or selling them online!

Deep clean EVERYTHING

You're going to need to put some serious elbow grease into your home cleaning, because, while you might not notice smudges on the fridge or cobwebs in the corner, a buyer definitely will.

Interior Decor

Now that you've created curb appeal and tackled the basics, it's time to give your home a few unique touches that make it stand out, but also help buyers envision themselves in the space. 

Depersonalize your decor

If you want a buyer to be able to see themselves in your home, then leaving up family pictures and bold decor choices aren't going to help. Paint the walls a neutral color, and keep the decorations to a minimum.

Create balance with furniture

Believe it or not, furniture placement can change the whole feel of a room. Too many chairs and couches makes a room feel crowded, while placing furniture away from the wall can actually make the space feel bigger!

The Final Details

Finally, you've made it to the last step! Try a few of these final touches to make your home pop.

Increase your lighting

Natural lighting is not only a mood-booster, but can also make you space feel roomier, so throw open those curtains and let the sunshine in. If the weather doesn't cooperate, you should consider swapping out your lightbulbs for a warmer wattage.

Bring the outdoors inside

A great way to keep decor neutral without making your home seem bland? Add in some plants and flowers! Throw up some hanging pots, put a few vases on the fireplace, and enjoy the pop of color and fresh scents that they provide.
