1. Focus on the Visual Appeal:

You're gonna sell your home? consider your target buyers like ninjas. Though they won't throw ninja stars at you, they'll be silently judging every corner of your house. The first impression matters a lot. Make your home look spacious by cluttering off the unnecessary items that remove your space.

The second factor to consider is to make sure that you opt for neutral tones such as beige, white, or light gray on the walls or on the furniture pieces.The third factor to focus on is bringing in fresh flowers or natural light. If it is winter, then utilize the warm lighting in your cozy blankets.     

2. The Power of Brightness:

Homestaging in natural lighting

Natural light makes your home look better always, so make use of natural light by opening the curtains and blinds. Make sure you wash your windows quite often for better sunlight penetration.

If furniture is blocking your natural light pathways, never re-arrange them. Place mirrors in a strategic manner where they can reflect the natural light inside the room, this creates a brighter open feel.

3. Creating a warm atmosphere:

Minor repairs often result in a major impact, small fixes like leaky faucet repair, or adjusting a squeaky door can create a well-maintained impression. Tables are not just for keeping your pen or other belongings, I suggest placing a vibrant flower on a coffee table or creating a pleasant aroma by placing scented candles for a welcoming touch. Other than this cleanliness is the key, having a deep clean really matters.

4. Try a budget-friendly staging:

You can convince a complete stranger to fall in love with your place, without even breaking your bank. Repurpose existing furniture layouts, and arrange your pillows in a neutral color. Adding new colors to your pillows and furniture can be a great way to unleash your inner Bob Ross, (of course without the paint in your hair)Living in your adulthood can be expensive, so feel free to ask your friends and family to let vases or decor items visually please your target. If they refuse to give their vases or decorative items, they give them an assurance that you will return their treasures with cookies and sweets.

5. Know Your Buyer:

Do thorough research on whom you are attracting, whether is it young families or professionals. Understand your target’s demographics, so that you can tailor your home staging as per the requirements of their needs.
