When it comes to selling homes buyers can have a hard time seeing the potential of the home. Too much clutter, wrong paint colors, any number of things can make a home unappealing to a potential buyer. It could even lead to the home staying on the market for a lengthy time and drive down the price...what is a homeowner to do? Give your house a few easy updates, that can have a major impact and make your space appealing to more potential buyers through home staging!

CURB APPEAL

The entry is the first thing that a potential buyer sees, so take some time to assess the front of your home. Make sure the front is clean and clear, and the house numbers are clearly visible. Add simple planters to bring life to the front.

DE-PERSONALIZE YOUR SPACE

This is something that many homeowners struggle with, but you have to look at this from a buyer's perspective. Take down family photos and religious items on display. Buyers need to see themselves in the home, and this is one area that can have them walking right out.

STYLING

To maximize the look of the space, minimize your use of color in your accents, accessories, and paint colors. Neutrals are proven to sell the homes above listing when used in key areas. When planning an open house add extra layers, such as adding table settings.
