  1. 1. How to Prepare for Home Staging By http://smarthomestyling.com.au Home staging is undoubtedly one of the most successful marketing strategies for selling a house. However, success is not always guaranteed. The key to a successful home staging is preparing for it long and hard. This is why if you’re thinking of doing home staging, the best thing that you can do is read basic home staging how-to so that you will be able to prepare for it properly. Here are some things that can help you prepare for home staging. Clean up your space. Take time to make sure that your house does not look cluttered. The best way to do this is by getting rid of anything that is not significant to home staging such as old magazines. You might think that these things can amp up the style factor of your house. However, the truth of the matter is that when it comes to home staging, less is more. Don’t hesitate to throw away anything that does not have anything to do with home staging.
  2. 2. Another great home staging how-to is incorporating nature to your house’s style. Think of bringing in plants in for the sake of the show. Just make sure that the color and style of the plants that you are going to bring in are somewhat relevant to the overall style of your house, or at least to the theme of the place where you’re thinking of putting it. The best thing that you can do if you’re trying to prepare for home staging is to think outside of the box. Don’t follow the usual trends when it comes to styling your house. Although it is a very wise move to look at home style magazines, you don’t have to copy everything that you see. One great home staging how-to is thinking of new and innovative ways to make your house look like its worth a million bucks. When thinking of doing a home staging, always remember that you should take time to look and analyze everything in your house. Try to look for different ways that you can enhance every part of your home. Things You Need to Know about Home Staging
  3. 3. Gone are the days of selling your house the old fashioned way, by hoping and praying that potential buyers like you house. Nowadays, if you want to sell your house at a respectable price, then you might want to read about home staging. Home staging is a great way to amp up the style value of a house thus making it easier for you to sell it to potential buyers. Here are some things that you might want to know about home staging. Don’t overdo it. This time, the old saying that less is more is very applicable in more ways than one. If you don’t stop yourself from over-designing your house, you will just end up making it look like a cluttered mess. Speaking of clutter, you should stack books neatly in a shelf. Books should be stacked vertically so that it is more pleasing to the eyes. If you don’t want to get rid of your old magazines or other paperback materials, then you might want to consider making or buying inexpensive baskets so that you can have a place to put them in. Don’t stick with the old fashioned ways of designing your house. Think outside the box. Dining room chairs can be used to create a lounge area at the patio. A coffee table does not have to be in the living room all the time. You can put it in the master’s bedroom to add more class to it. One thing about home staging is that you should consider thinking out of the box more often. Another thing about home staging is that it’s all about the light. Letting the rays of the sun come in through clean and properly designed windows can be very enticing to potential buyers since it creates that scene of perfection and peace. Proper lighting is also a good way to visually enhance those less flattering areas of your house. If you can’t manipulate those places into looking more flattering, then consider manipulating the lights. Lastly, one more thing worth remembering about home staging is that different buyers have different taste. You should never give up if one buyer says no.
  4. 4. Lowering the Costs of Home Staging Home staging can be really complicated because there is so much to do that knowing where to start if you are doing it yourself is as important as the home staging process itself. In any real estate market, you will find yourself spending hundreds to thousands of dollars just to make your house stand out from the competition. But are you sure that you will be able to recoup the costs? Do you know where to exactly start with the home staging project? See here what re the basic ways to lowering the costs of home staging. Good lighting is perhaps the most effective way to sell your home. When a buyer looks through your house, they will explore every detail during their exploration. Once a buyer sees a burned out light bulb or lamp and in consequence is unable to see the details of a room or closet space, then they won’t have a very good impression of your house. Make sure to replace all old bulbs with new ones to ensure they are working especially when a buyer checks out your place.
  5. 5. Another way to lower the costs of home staging is to clean the gutters outside of your house. How your home looks outside almost makes up 50% of the buyer's first impression. If they see that the gutters outside the house are cluttered with leaves and other debris. It will make them think that house maintenance is very poor. Buyers don’t want to inherit a seller’s cleaning problems so better to clean up your act and start cleaning those gutters. Clear the kitchen counter space. Kitchens are the heart of the home and this means buyers will want to know if there will be room to grow in that space. Clear away unnecessary counter appliances and kitchen decorations to give the buyers an impression of more space. Paint high traffic spaces. These areas are the best places to find unwanted marks on the walls which may look like poor maintenance but are actually signs of daily wear and tear. Paint the walls in high traffic spaces. Lowering the costs of home staging can be a pretty daunting task, but they are actually pretty simple to pull off. You just have to know these basic stuff so that when the time comes that you need to stage your home, you will only have to spend a few hundreds of dollars and even before you know it, you have already recouped your expenses for the home staging.
