In order to adapt the house to the home staging, there some steps to be followed:
1. Clean and tidy up
2. Repair the damages
3. Organizing the space
4. Clear up the rooms
5. Depersonalize as much as possible
What are the advantages of using the home staging?
When a buyer visits a property for sale, besides the price, there are some other aspects that the house must project. In other words, the person should be able to visualize himself or herself living in that house and feel it.
If the decoration of your house is too excessive, the person that comes and see it won’t feel identified with it; that’s why the home staging proposes the depersonalization of the house by eliminating all photos, familiar stuff… to help you sell the house.
The importance of the cleaning:
Houses that are dirty, untidy… are difficult to sell. The client will try to bargain the price to get a lower one by manifesting all kind of damages the client has seen.
If your house is super clean, there won’t be any kind of circumstances to ask for a price reduction.
Respect the proportions:
A small living room with a huge sofa or a tiny bedroom with a king size bed, are some mistakes that might be easily done when decorating the house.
And even though you might have felt comfy at your house, when the time comes to sell it, it is better to clear all rooms up.
In order not to have all rooms overflowed, get rid of the furniture that are not that necessary. A professional can advise you about which of your furniture should be stored up.
Another tip it is to redefine all spaces of your house, for example: an empty room can be a new play room. This way the new possible buyers might sense the room not as storage one but as a simple bedroom.
The goal is that the new buyer gets an idea of what is he going to buy and being able to imagine it.
