8 Top Tips for Staging Your Home to Sell Fast!

Are you thinking about selling your home in NYC?  Staging your home can greatly enhance your apartment and help to sell it quickly and for a higher price.  When a home is staged, buyers can better envision themselves living in the space.

Following are 8 easy tips you can take when staging your home.

One of the most important tips is to depersonalize your home. Remove your personal items such as family photos or memorabilia. This helps buyers to see their own personal touches in the living space.

Highlight and showcase the best features of your home. This can be done by placing your furniture strategically or highlighting areas with lighting or artwork.

Adding plants and fresh flowers brings life and vibrancy. It helps to soften and add warmth to the overall appeal of the space.

The use of mirrors can make a smaller space appear larger.  Mirrors can reflect light and create a brighter more open look.

Let in as much natural light as possible. Be sure to open the blinds and curtains all the way.

Rearrange the furniture to maximize the flow of the living space.  Create clear pathways and highlight the best features of a room.  Don't be afraid to remove furniture and put it in storage until your apartment is sold.

Neutral colors on walls and furniture will appeal to a wider array of tastes. Your buyers will be able to envision their own style more easily. Don't be afraid to add a pop of color using pillows, vases, or throws.

Lastly, declutter the space. Take away items that do not add value to the living space. A decluttered space will appear clean and more spacious.

In a tough market when selling your home, remember the rule, always put your best foot forward. You want your buyers to feel the warmth of your home and to envision themselves living there.
