Home Staging Tips

Fall is the season for warm, cozy homes. And what better way to bring that feeling into your home than by staging it?

Here are a few tips to get you started:

1.) Brighten Up – Not only do well-lit rooms look larger, they look more inviting. Days get shorter in the fall, meaning there is a smaller window of opportunity for using natural light in your home.

2.) Turn On The Heat – A home is many things, including a shelter from the cold. Nothing is more inviting on a frigid day than a warm home, so turn the heat up to a comfortable temperature – around 70 to 72 degrees. You don’t want your guests sweating as they walk through your house, but you don’t want them to have to wear their coats, either. Find a reasonable temperature and make sure it’s even throughout the house.

3.) Have Your HVAC Inspected – Before you schedule showings, get your heating, ventilation and air conditioning system inspected by a professional. Your HVAC system is an expensive piece of equipment that is sold with the home, and if it’s running rough – or not at all – that could turn off potential buyers.

4.) Emphasize Coziness – One of the best parts about fall is curling up with a good book in the warmth and comfort of your home on a cold day. And if someone can picture themselves doing just that in your house, it will be hard for them to walk away from it. So how do you emphasize coziness? Consider what you’re wearing.

5.) Keep Your Curb Appealing – “A prospective buyer’s first impression of a home is the exterior,” says Rhianna Miller. Curb appeal is as important as the interior. It’s the first thing that your potential buyers will see.
