Spring is a season so beautiful and favorable that your house almost sells itself. Though the temperate weather and lovely springtime blossoms makes selling a bit easier, there are many ways you can make the most of the season to show off your home to buyers. We’re letting you in on some tips for how to stage your home during spring.
When staging your home, it’s always a good idea to evoke the current season in a tasteful, unobtrusive way. Perhaps one of the easiest ways to bring spring inside is to place flowers around your home. It doesn’t matter if the flowers are fresh or fake, either type will give your home a pop of color and make it feel more inviting.
It’s hard to go wrong with florals for spring! Try tying your dining area together with a spring-patterned tablecloth or adding some inexpensive throw pillows to accent your sofa. Maybe floral patterns aren’t exactly for you. If that’s the case, you can place leafy details around the home to give rooms a lush look.
Let the sunshine in, literally! Take advantage of the longer days by allowing bright rays to shine through your windows. Be sure to clean both the inside and outside of your windows so they sparkle. Use light-colored curtains to maximize brightness by reflecting light, which will help make the room seem larger.
Consider giving a room or two a fresh coat of paint, choosing a neutral, light-toned color. Not only will this refresh your existing walls, but it will make the rooms feel more spacious and provide a blank canvas so buyers can visualize themselves living in your house.
Whenever you’re letting prospective buyers look at your home, you’ll want to declutter unneeded items and do a deep “spring cleaning” of the whole house. Clearing junk from your house will benefit you once you’re ready to move and aid in depersonalizing your space. Make sure your house is as clean as possible as not to turn off potential buyers.
In the springtime, your yard will play a significant role in attracting buyers. Take time to increase curb appeal by cleaning up any debris from fall and winter, mowing the lawn, and trimming any overgrown shrubs or trees. Add a touch of spring by putting up a pretty wreath and placing a potted plant or two by the front door to welcome visitors. Your front door should make a positive first impression to buyers; give it a new coat of paint if it’s looking dingy. Make the exterior of your house brighter by power washing to get rid of grime that may have accumulated over the past few months.
Staging will help immensely when you’re trying to sell your house, and it’s easy to incorporate seasonal elements if you’re selling during spring. Light-toned colors, springtime accents, and a tidy lawn are the key elements to make your spring staging a success.
