7 Of The Best Home Staging Tips For Summer Showings

The months of June, July and August are some of the best months to sell your home. They are also the most competitive months, so it is important to stage your home well, allowing you to rise above the competition. Below are a few great staging tips that will allow you to do just that.

  1. Brighten things up
Light makes a room feel more open and spacious, so the more you can brighten your home, the more welcoming your home will be. Clean windows, open blinds, lit lamps and drawn curtains will brighten up your rooms and create an illusion of more spaciousness in your home.

  1. Enhance your curb appeal
Adding bright vivid colors to your curb appeal captures the spirit of summer. Keep the hedges trimmed, prune the trees, and edge the sidewalks. Any decorative items should be neutral in color and match the trim of the house. Also power washing the driveway, sidings and sidewalks, removing weeds from cracks and repainting hand railings are great ways to improve the curb appeal of your property.

  1. Make the entrance immaculate
Keeping your front door area clean and presentable is important. A fresh coat of paint on the front door will give the home a feeling of a newer home. The front porch should be thoroughly swept clean and extra furniture should be removed. Potted plants give a nice decorative touch.

  1. Showcase the outdoor spaces
During the summer season patios and decks are always well utilized, and if your home has either or both, you should emphasize these spaces. Setting up your patio with choice outdoor furniture and a barbeque will give potential buyers a good idea of how to entertain outdoors. Ensure that there is no clutter like toys, tools and bicycles in sight, so that the buyer can get an unobstructive view of your outdoor spaces.

  1. Eliminate the pests
In the summer time pests and bugs tend to appear in all corners of the home. Many potential buyers may want to view the attic and crawl spaces. Getting the home professionally treated for pests and bugs will prevent buyers from having chance encounters with them in these places.

  1. Keep cool
There’s nothing like being in a stuffy room on a hot summer’s day, so it is vital that the home you are showing is cool and comfortable. If you have an a/c unit, keep it on, if not, then make sure your windows are open allowing a breeze to sway into the home. Use fans if necessary.

  1. Offer refreshments
On a warm day, offering a cool beverage is a classy touch. Keep it simple with bottles of flavored or plain water or a dispenser with water or ice tea with a note to the visitors to help themselves.
