Elena Acosta - BEST staging tips when selling your home!

Posted by: Elena Acosta

The purpose of the sellers stating their home is simply because….STAGING makes more money.  We the Real Estate agents are the profecionals and can help you get more money for your house.  One of the most important thing to do is to start with a curve appeal.  Planting some nice flowers and cleaning the front of the house can tremendously help.  The second most important is declatoring just put your self in the eyes of the buyer.  You want to come home to a fresh and clean house.  Adding some fresh paint can also help along with some new clean windows.  Here are some tips that I FOUND on line:

When you spend all your time inside your house, it's easy to forget that what's on the outside is important too. Whether you are getting ready to sell or are just looking to make some critical improvements, improving your curb appeal is easier - and less expensive - than you may think.  "There are dozens of small, inexpensive home improvements that you can do to your house to add instant curb appeal," said DIY Network. "Adding curb appeal to your house not only makes it easier to sell, but it also gives your house that nice and finished look."  With a few bucks and a little elbow grease, you'll be standing out front with pride.

Redo your front door, want an instant pick-me-up for your curb appeal? Paint your front door. And while you're at it, spruce up your hardware too. "Your home's front entry is the focal point of its curb appeal. Make a statement by giving your front door a blast of color with paint or by installing a custom wood door," said Better Homes and Gardens. "Clean off any dirty spots around the knob, and use metal polish on the door fixtures. Your entry should also reflect the home's interior, so choose a swag or a wreath that reflects your personal style." The finishing touch: a clean, modern welcome mat.

Replace your light fixtures

Old, tired light fixtures can make a house look, well, old and tired. Changing them out is an easy fix "that can be found anywhere from $20 and up," said DIY Network. New light fixtures can modernize your exterior, but remember to "consider both the style of the light fixtures and the function of them. You want your light fixtures to be able to adequately light up your entryway to your house and make it safer. Also, look for light fixtures that have the same mounting system as the current ones that you have to save yourself some time on this home improvement project.
