Pumpkin Spice Up Your Home with Staging before Selling
It’s fall, y’all, which means it’s time to Pumpkin Spice Up Your Home with Staging. Let’s be honest. It’s time to pumpkin spice up everything! Start with a warm, comforting pumpkin spice beverage then take a look at your home. Whether you are planning on selling your home soon or not, here are some helpful tips on how to Pumpkin Spice Up Your Home with Staging.
Declutter. Declutter. Declutter.
Take one shelf at a time, one corner at a time, one room at a time. Ask for help or hire a professional. One easy way to declutter is to take pictures of your space to get some perspective on what you need to do. If you are considering selling your home soon, decluttering is vital. Start packing away knick-knacks, collections, and family photos.
‘Tis the season to donate.
The holiday season and the end of the year remain to be popular times to donate unneeded items. Places like thrift shops and the Salvation Army are wonderful options. Try to get a little creative with donating this year. Is there a local women’s shelter that could take the extra clothes or shoes from your closet? Or a children’s home that would gladly take the toys that were played with once?
Depersonalize as much as possible.
Buyers want to visualize themselves living in your home. It’s hard for them to do that when they’re distracted by your adorable family photos. Take all the happy magnets and precious artwork off the refrigerator.
Add lots of light.
Open up the blinds and curtains. Replace burnt-out lightbulbs. Add lamps in dark corners and rooms. Bring in some plants to add life to your space. Light makes the space feel larger and cleaner.
Clear off all countertops and tabletops.
The easiest to make your spaces look tidier is to clear off all surfaces. Go through the stack of mail you’ve been hiding from. Find homes for all the items on the tables, and if you cannot find a home, go back to tip #2. Don’t forget to dust.
Erase all signs of pets.
Before having professional photographers come in, hide the dog bowls and kitty litter. Especially before showings, hide any signs that you have pets. Make sure your home smells fresh, clean, and pet-free. And vacuum all the pet hair.
Keep it simple. Keep it clean.
Create an easy-to-follow cleaning routine. Keep the dishes out of the sink. Wipe down surfaces daily. Make sure your home smells fresh and clean.
Bonus Tip: When you have finished all the decluttering, hire a professional cleaner to come in a do a deep clean of your home before the photographers arrive. After that, it’s all about maintaining the clean for showings. This makes everything less daunting.
