Staging Tips to Help Your Home Stand Out

It’s important that sellers do everything possible to improve the appeal of their home, which often means staging it during an open-inspection.

If you have ever walked through an open house and haven’t been able to work out the type of person who would live in it and the lifestyle it displays, then there’s a good chance that the property was staged for the purpose of your inspection. Staging a property is a great way to emphasize the selling points of a property and help buyers to visualize its opportunities.

Make Your Home Stand out with These Staging Tips

If the idea of staging your home yourself sounds appealing instead of hiring a professional, Speedy Title and Escrow Services, LLC has prepared the below post with some tips to help get you started.

A Thorough Clean

Buyers know that they are buying a property which has been lived in and almost expect a little wear-and-tear. However, what buyers aren’t interested in is a mess or a generally dirty property. The first place to start with staging your home for inspection is to give it a thorough clean. And by thorough clean, we mean thorough clean, ensuring that all areas of your property are clean and tidy. As you complete the task, pay particular attention to these items as they can often receive more attention from buyers:

  • Your front door and entrance area
  • Kitchen benches and meal preparation areas.
  • Your bathroom ceiling and tiles.
  • All of your storage areas.

Neutral Colors

Once your property is clean, it’s time to decorate it. If you have a vacant property then the best option will be to consider hiring furniture. There is a range of furniture rental services which allow you to hire everything that you need to furnish a home temporarily. When you are choosing your items, keep these points in mind:

  • Steer away from patterns and prints.
  • Choose neutral and muted colors.
  • Make sure that all of the items match, even through different rooms.
  • Make sure that each item will help you show off the potential of the space.

If you already have furniture in the property or will be using your own, here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • Clutter is the enemy, so remove as much as you can.
  • Take photos and award and other personal items from the walls and display areas.
  • Clear everything away, such as your kitchen utensils and laundry cleaning items.
  • Move your furniture around so that each room is easy to navigate and buyers can see all of the space available for them to work with.

Buyers using borrowed funds will require title insurance in Clinton Township to satisfy their lending requirements and to secure financial protection. To do this, a clean title is required. Speak with an expert at Speedy Title and Escrow Services, LLC by calling (586) 739-2233 and find out how you can arrange a title search and ensure your title is ready.

Entertainment Spaces

It’s important to set up any and all entertainment spaces you have around your property, inside and out, as this is something which the majority of buyers will be interested in seeing. When you are staging these areas, keep these ideas in your mind:

  • Swap seasonal decorations for a general dinner party or brunch options.
  • Instead of using a single overhead light, look to install standing lamps to light up the whole space.
  • Set up each space to accommodate as many people as possible.
  • Resist the urge to use candles as these will largely be left unattended and can be dangerous.

Lastly, the Bedroom

When staging a bedroom, the best thought you can keep in your mind is that the room needs to look gender neutral. This is because you don’t have any idea of the type of buyers who will be inspecting your property and want to make it appeal to as many people as possible.

  • Instead of romantic flowers such as roses, consider bright gerberas or sunflowers.
  • Make sure the decorations on the side tables are matching.
  • Instead of ‘his and her’ towel sets, consider plain colors which match the rest of the design.
  • Similar to the tip above, install additional lighting if necessary to make buyers can see all of the space they will have available.

Smart Buyers Will Purchase Title Insurance in Target

When staging a property, it’s important to remember that your own style doesn’t matter and that you aren’t staging the property to sell your design flair. Instead, every choice you make should ensure that your property is shown at its best. When you are ready to open your home for inspection, speak with Speedy Title and Escrow Services, LLC at (586) 739-2233 about a thorough title inspection and report. Buyers utilizing a mortgage will require title insurance in Clinton Township to satisfy their lender’s requirements, which means a clear title is required.
