4 Tips for Staging Your Home for Sale


As the temperatures begin to drop up north, Arizona is a notorious safe-haven for those looking to escape frigid temperatures. If you or someone you know is in the market to sell and move permanently or seasonally to one of the best private golf course communities in Arizona, Superstition Golf and Country Club, staging the home for sale well can seal the deal. Check out these four strategies to highlight your home’s strengths, downplay its weaknesses and offer the greatest appeal to prospective buyers. 

Get Rid of Clutter
When buyers arrive at your home, you don’t want them to feel like they’re walking into a mess. Even though the house may be clean, sometimes too much furniture, décor and just belongings can turn off a prospective buyer. A cluttered home makes rooms and the overall layout appear smaller and less functional. Invest in more sound means of organization or begin purging unnecessary items to give your staged home a more open and larger appearance. 

In our previous blog on how to glamify your living room, we stressed the importance of quality lighting. Changes to location and types of lighting elements can drastically alter the look and feel of any room. It’s no different when deciding to show a home. If the house has exceptional natural lighting, accentuate it by pulling back curtains or opening shutters and blinds to make the home as comfortable and welcoming as possible. 

Update with Paint
Boldly painted walls have a great way of making a statement, however they can also immediately deter buyers if the style is overwhelming. Paint larger living spaces neutral tones that will help reflect light and make the staged home brighter and inviting. If you feel one room is small and want to give the illusion of a larger space, paint adjacent rooms the same color. The similar tones will help eyes flow seamlessly from one room to another making both rooms seem like one large space. 

Don’t Forget About Curb Appeal
The first impression of your staged home comes when prospective buyers arrive at the property. Curb appeal is a great place to start with the home staging process. Walk outside your home and imagine pulling up the first time. Is the landscaping maintained? Are there visible broken roof tiles? Does the house need a paint touch up? These are just some of the questions you’ll want to ask yourself, and if needed, give some love to boost your home’s curb appeal. Consider power washing your sidewalks and driveway to remove dirt, grime and possible oil stains or tire marks from vehicles. 

You don’t need a state-of-the-art kitchen or fully remodeled master bedroom to make your home look like it belongs on a Pinterest board or in a magazine. These simple tips and strategies will go a long way to showing off your property in the best possible way.
