Show your home at it’s maximum potential
One of the costliest mistakes made by home sellers is ignoring the home presentation. Potential buyers become interested in a property when they walk in and feel, “I could live here.” When they can imagine it as their own home.
As humans, we can be easily overwhelmed, when there is too much to see, we don’t see anything.
Too many colours, furniture, and possessions make it difficult for potential buyers to concentrate on the property. The more we see in a room, the less we can process.
Barbara Schwarz coined the term “home staging” many years ago. She realized by prepping a home for sale, it sold faster and most often over asking price.
Home staging has five basic elements: De-clutter, Pare Down, Position Furniture, Colour, and Lighting. Home staging is effective because it emphasizes a property’s strengths and minimizes its weak points. It attracts attention to the right areas.
