Home staging is an important part of bringing your home to market. First of all, the photos are prominent and help to secure potential buyers at the door. For others, if they are there, they help to visualize themselves living in space and, hopefully, encourage them to write suggestions. It is important to be prepared with this in mind, but it is easy to make mistakes at home.
To that end, we decided to help get the right results by pointing out some of the most common mistakes. Read it to make sure none of it happened in your house.
Keep It Too Personal
If you want to live in your home for a while now, it is best to give it a personal feel. Anyway, your house should be an oasis of the outside world. Of course, you will want to fit in with your personal taste. However, if you sell a house, your goal will change. Now, you want your house to appeal to as many potential buyers as possible.
EDIT: Find a neutral look on the number of decorations and personal items around your house. Take that family picture and replace it with an inexpensive geometric piece. Repaint your face with a soft, neutral hue.
Does not include some contrast
In other words, sometimes people can go too far when de-personalizing their homes for resale. You will not be able to turn off the buyer if you see several rooms decorated in tan or light gray, but they are not very memorable at home. The best way is to include some contrast in the neutral palette to create visual interest.
Correction: 10-30-60 Remember the rules. If the main shade and auxiliary shade, which account for 60% and 30% of the car, are both relatively neutral, you can show off the accent shade and catch your eye. To help with the rest of the room, it’s a good idea to use bold colors such as accent pillows or wall art.
Forget about scale
Size and proportions are important to consider when collecting rooms. However, when you try to sell them they become more critical. In short, a potential buyer views his furniture as a guide to how he thinks he lives in space.
If the furniture is too large, it is assumed that there is not enough space in the house. On the other hand, assuming that furniture is too small for a room, it will have difficulty filling the space appropriately.
EDIT: Check your ratios. I am usually looking for furniture at 2/3 of the room rate. Then the length of the sofa should occupy two-thirds of the width of the closest wall. The coffee table should be 2/3 of the width of the sofa. You can use the same percentage for a table or bed frame.
Does not consider target audience
When you are preparing your home, you should always keep your goal audience in mind and stage accordingly. In real estate, the target audience is the demographics that make up the people most likely to buy a house, or most neighbors.
For example, if your neighbors are made up of young professionals and their families, you can aim for more modern color palettes and decorations. But if your area is full of vacancies that are scaling down, it would be more reasonable to move on to a more modern look.
