Did you know that the layout of your furniture will have a direct impact on the impression that people will have of your home? If you are trying to sell your home, then you need to take some time to stage the home to make it look more attractive to potential buyers. A few small changes can make a big difference to highlight the positive features of the property.  In this article we are going to discuss How to Stage Your Home to Highlight the Best Features of the Property.

These are a few tips that you can use when staging your home. It is best to implement these techniques before the real estate photographer comes so that the home looks as good as possible in the listing photos:

Make Your Yard the Cleanest on the Street

Is your front yard in need of some attention? If your yard looks shabby compared with the neighbors, then it is important that you spend a little bit of time outside to clean things up. Having the contrast between a manicured yard compared with a run-down yard will set a bad first impression when potential buyers pull up in front for a showing.

Focus on the Kitchen

It has been said that the kitchen is the heart of the home. It is common for home buyers to ask to see the kitchen first, which means that the quality of the kitchen will have an impact on the rest of the showing. Consider small remodeling tasks, such as updating the cupboards or replacing the flooring. Also, take the time to clean the kitchen before every showing, to make sure that the room shines.

Use Gender-Neutral Colors

When a person is touring your home, it is important that they can visualize their family living in the property. If you have unusual paint colors or home décor, then it might be hard for people to see the space as their own. Choose neutral paint colors and minimize the crazy decorations as much as possible. Even though you like to show your personality in the home, it is better to reduce the distractions so that the buyers can focus on the features of the home.

Clear the Clutter

If you have too much furniture crowded into a room, then it will make space look smaller. Reduce the amount of furniture that you have, and get rid of the smaller items that are cluttering up shelves and counter space. Less is better, which means that you might need to pack some things into storage when you are showing your home.
