Staging Tips for Spring
Thursday Mar 24th, 2016
After a long, dark winter, spring has finally arrived in Southern Ontario! With it comes warmer temperatures, longer days and, of course, buyers looking to plant new roots by purchasing a new home!
The spring real estate market is proving to be a busy one. If you are looking to sell your home and make it stand out from the rest, staging is a great way to impress potential buyers.
Here are some easy tips to help you brighten up your home and make it a welcoming place for the spring real estate market:
Whip your yard into shape
When you're selling in the spring, you need to get your yard into shape as quickly as possible. This includes clearing all winter yard debris and perhaps even planting a few frost-resistant plants for added colour.
Do some spring cleaning
Say goodbye to dust bunnies! A sparkling clean house will impress buyers and make your home seem even more appealing.
Box up your winter wardrobe
Bulky winter clothes, like sweaters, boots and jackets, all take up prime closet space. By boxing these items up, you can make your closets look more spacious, which is a huge selling point for buyers.
Tidy up the entryway
If your welcome mat has seen better days, it’s time to buy a new one. A clean, tidy doorway will help set the tone for buyers touring your home.
Bring spring aromas indoors
Nothing says spring like tulips and daffodils! Not only do they add beautiful pops of colour, but they also lend a welcoming aroma.
Bring out the bright colours
Say goodbye to heavy, dark flannel textiles and hello to crisp linens in warm colours. A simple swap of duvets, coverlets and pillows can really reinvigorate a space!
Remember, staging doesn’t have to be overly expensive or time-consuming. By using these simple tricks, you can really bring spring indoors and make your home feel welcoming to potential buyers.
