Home staging | Present your home for sale or let

The start of a new year typically brings a lot more properties to the market. We felt it would be a good idea to give you some tips on how to get the staging of your property right.

1. That lived in feel
We advise to keep your home clean and tidy, but ensure that your home has a “lived in” feel. Too much furniture can make your home look over-crowded, but too little furniture can give your home a cold feeling.

2. Don’t Underestimate The Power Of Flowers
Whilst we wouldn’t encourage you to go over the top on flowers the odd bunch could prove to be effective. Not only will give off a lovely scent, it will also help with the photography too.

3. Selling a Lifestyle
Remember, you’re not just selling a home, you’re selling a lifestyle. Don’t over do it with furniture and hide the clutter. Viewers will always want to see how space will work for them, over doing it, or leaving clutter around could make it hard for viewers to see the space in any other way.

4. Temperature
It’s important that your home heated well, especially in the winter! If your home is cold, viewers won’t hang around! Equally, if your home is too hot, it could look like you’re trying to hard and be off putting.

5. Lighting
Make sure that there is sufficient lighting to your rooms. We would recommend ensuring that you allow as much natural light into your home as possible, pulling back curtains and tying up blinds. If you are relying on artificial light we would recommend ensuring that all lights are switched on before a perspective viewer arrives.
