Are You Getting Your Home Ready to Sell? Staging and Other Tips!

Springtime is the perfect time to fix up your home!  If you are considering putting your home on the market and getting it ready to sell, you might want to consider staging it.  Home staging can transform your home from feeling outdated to new and trendy.  Plus, you have a better chance of selling your home quickly and at a good price.

According to data from the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA), with an average investment of 1% of the sale price into staging, about 75% of sellers saw an ROI of 5% to 15%.   According to a 2021 NARs study, more than a quarter of buyers are more willing to overlook property faults if a home is staged. 

The goal of staging is to make your home look like a model home.  Staging can go from bringing in new furniture to adding smaller items such as faux plants, books, and vases.

The following small touches can make a difference in your home and can be done cost-effectively. If you are not planning on changing furniture but want to add small items, below are a few ways to update the look of your home. 

A sleek glass bowl for fruit placed on your table in your kitchen or dining room is a great touch. This adds color and can become a centerpiece. Try adding lemons or limes for a fresh pop of color.

Decorative coat hangers can make a difference and add glam to your foyer. Instead of putting your coats in the closet, hang a few in the entryway on decorative hooks. You can find metal hooks in all styles and colors from gold, brass, and silver. This will add a luxurious look and at the same time, functionality to a simple entryway.

To achieve a chic, look for your bathroom countertop try adding canisters for your Q-Tips, cotton balls, and soap. This simple addition adds style, and decoration and can tidy up a small space.

Silk flowers added to an oversized vase can create a bright, upbeat look for your living space. Flowers bring in colors that can match your pillows or sofa.  Try using hydrangea, as they come in many colors and can fill a large vase.

Scented candles always add a perfect touch to any room. Not only do they add a pleasant smell but can also add a bit of color. Remember to take the label off the jar to make the candle look aesthetically pleasing.

A cable management kit can hide clunky cords that make a space look messy and sloppy. This kit can keep things clean, organized and hide tangled cords from eyes view.

Whether you are staging your home or just adding a few small touches, improving the look of your home will help to sell it more quickly. For information about staging and selling or buying a home, the J Brigham Team is here for you. Always ready to Go the Extra Mile!
