Staging Your Home to Appeal to Buyers

We here at Colorado Professionals Title in Highlands Ranch have offered a few suggestions to increase your home’s curb appeal in the past, and today we’d like to focus on maximizing your property’s appeal to potential buyers once they’re inside.

Clean and tidy

It goes without saying that you need to clean your home from top to bottom in order for it to be at its most appealing. Don’t forget to vacuum thoroughly and to clean all your windows and mirrors to a high shine.

Declutter (but not too much!)

Getting rid of clutter is paramount in order for viewers to be able to picture themselves making your property their home. It’s much harder to do so if they’re confronted with lots of personal items, memorabilia and souvenirs. Pack up items like these and put them in storage or in closets. Make sure you don’t get rid of absolutely everything, though, as this will create a sterile, unwelcoming atmosphere. Leave some books on your coffee table and a basket of fruit on your kitchen counter to make your house seem homely, for example.

Arrange your furniture

Many people feel that keeping furniture against the walls and away from the center of a room will create the illusion that the room is larger. In fact, most viewers prefer furniture that is arranged in the center of a room, away from the walls, and paired or grouped so as to create a sociable, friendly atmosphere.

Keep it neutral

If you have the budget, repainting your home in neutral colors can help buyers project their own decorative tastes onto your property, meaning they’re more likely to fall in love with it. Avoid bright white and instead opt for more relaxed neutral shades such as magnolia or very soft yellows.
