When asked by Realtor Magazine what staging accessories help to make a listed home show more effectively, Realtors and designers responded with the following ideas. Utilize these inexpensive suggestions to set your home apart from the competition.
Rugs can help you define a large space. Have a vacant home you want to stage? Place a rug in the bedroom and plop a few pillows and a breakfast serving tray on top of the rug instead of incurring the cost of a bedroom suit and accessories.
Dress up a window, but let light in. Use a tension rod with a white sheer curtain on the windows. No tools are necessary!
Be creative in using trunks or small suitcases in place of a side table. It adds interest because it’s unexpected, but appealing to all types of buyers.
Timers for Lights
If your home is darker inside or if your home is on the market during the gray days of winter, having lights on when your prospective buyers enter the home can definitely change the first impression.
Simple fresh flowers just can’t be beat for brightening a home and making it feel welcoming – even if just a single bud in a small vase in the bathroom.
Use clear canisters in the kitchen filled with candy, such as Swedish Fish, M&Ms or peppermints. It adds some color and a splash of fun.
