Staging Tips On Adding Value To Your Home Selling Property

By Adriana Noton

In the real estate roller coaster ride of buyers and sellers markets, sellers want to do all they can to draw buyers in to see their house. Use a few of these staging tips on adding value to your home selling property. This will not only help set your house apart from the rest of the homes on the market, but you will also have a better chance of increasing your profit.

Statistics show that staging a home prior to putting it on the market increases your chances of a sale. On average, a house that has been staged will be on the market for fourteen days versus a house that has not been staged will be on the market for thirty one days. In addition to selling faster, a staged home also sells for more money. The average staged home sells between three and ten percent higher than the listed price.

Before you begin staging your home for sale, assess each space to determine a general function or mood that can be portrayed that will appeal to a wide range of home buyers. Remember the more groups of people interested in your home, the more bids you are likely to receive. For example, transforming extra space into a relaxing and inviting master retreat would probably appeal to more people than a sound proofed band or music room.

As you are completing your space assessment, think of ways to accentuate the natural architecture of the room, such as arched entries or bay windows. Where necessary, consider ways to adapt elements in the room to make your space work, like air conditioning units or other eye soars. Also make note of items in the house that you need to get rid of, like old window treatments.

After you have a good idea of what you intend to do with each space and what needs to be removed or covered up, clear everything out of the space- all furniture and so on. Clean the space, including all windows and carpets. If the walls need repair and painting, make sure this is something you invest in. Choose neutral colors, like a light brown color. Remember you are aiming to appeal to the masses. So even though you love how the Burnt Sienna colored walls really make your mustard colored leather couch pop, go with colors and furnishings that are more subtle.

Begin adding elements to your space that relate to the function of your room. For example, in a living room space, bring in a couch set and coffee table. Work around a focal point, like a fireplace. If there is no natural focal point, create one, such as placing a breakfront against the wall with a large framed mirror above it.

After you have gotten the function and focal point of your room down, be sure to harmonize the elements in your space. For example, if the kitchen and living room spaces are open and adjacent, make sure to use complimentary color schemes. Balance the room by ensuring the furniture is within scale to the space, and any extra space is used to handle any secondary function of the room. Do not over furnish your space, however, as this will take away from the space.

Bring in your accessories last, such as throw pillows or plants. Create little vignettes on a nightstand or shelf using a few accessories. Always consider more than one type of lighting in your space to add more dimension. Combine up lighting with down lighting, as well as ambient mood lighting. Be sure that your accessories and lighting capture the mood you are aiming for in the space. Choose soft ambient music that can be played in the main area of the house. Most important, keep the music and lights on the entire time the house is on the market to maintain the appropriate mood.
