Home Staging Tips for Houston Home Sellers
When selling your Houston home, investing in home staging can shorten your days-on-market and help you obtain top-dollar offers. Best of all, home staging isn’t terribly expensive! Here are some ideas to help you get started.
Begin with an eye on curb appeal. Power wash the home exterior. Wash windows inside and out. Clean the yard of debris. If your front door is worn-looking, consider adding a coat of paint for a pop of color. New house numbers, a bright new mailbox, and a new welcome mat will add flair.
De-clutter your entire home interior. Pack away collectibles, remove personal photos, and remove excess furniture. Clear out cabinets and closets. Storage areas shouldn’t be more than half-full. Rent a storage unit if needed.
If the interior has not been painted in several years, apply fresh paint in neutral colors. The living room, bathrooms and kitchen should appear as new and fresh as possible!
Polish up hardwood floors and shampoo the carpets. Worn areas can be covered with natural-fiber rugs. If your living room furniture is worn, use new slipcovers and throw pillows to perk things up.
Give your home a modern look by upgrading light fixtures, replacing old lamps, and upgrading faucets.
Display new bedcovers in each bedroom, and new towels in each washroom.
Create a focal point in each room. This can be accomplished with the use of color and accessories, such as artwork or floral arrangements, or the strategic placement of furniture. The goal is to create a fresh, clean and inviting look!
