Clutter Be Gone

Staging Your Home Northern CaliforniaThe number one home staging trick is to remove all signs of clutter. This includes having too much furniture. Potential buyers want to come in and imagine their own items in the home and if there's clutter everywhere, buyers could potentially lose interest. This is also a great opportunity to purge items you don't want to move with, saving you time when packing.

Light It Up

A bright and open residence can make a significant difference in your home's ambience. Open the blinds, change the lightbulbs, and turn every light on. A luminous home is warm and welcoming and buyers will be able to clearly see all the wonderful features your property has to offer.

Fresh Coat of Neutral Paint

If you're looking for an inexpensive way to spruce up your Granite Bay or Roseville home, consider throwing on a fresh coat of paint. You may have painted your living room bright blue for a splash of bold color, but warm, neutral hues are more likely to increase the amount of offers. Opt for warm tans, honeys, and beiges in large spaces.

Flowers Abound

Place beautiful fresh flowers throughout your home to add a pop of cheerful color. In the Fall, consider orange and red foliage or Peonies and light pinks in the Spring. You can simply raid your own garden or purchase a few bouquets from your local florist.

Show Off The Bedrooms

One of the easiest ways to stage your home is by making it feel welcoming. Bedrooms are extremely important to buyers so you'll want the rooms to feel inviting. Use neutral-patterned bedding, light candles and if possible, use an elegant bedframe. These tricks will make a potential homebuyer want to sit back and relax.

Pack Away Pictures

You'll want your home to show like a model and pictures of your family can be extremely distracting to buyers. De-personalizing helps potential investors view your home as their own. Packing the photos away will also help you prepare for your all-too-soon move.

Curb Appeal

The outside of your home is a potential buyer's first impression of the residence, so it's important to have it looking its best. Northern California offers some of the most beautiful landscapes in the country, so make sure the lawn is mowed and clear of toys, debris, etc. You can easily pressure-clean your driveway to ensure a bright and spotless entrance. Additionally, using mulch to cover dirt areas around your home is an inexpensive way to make everything look immaculate.

When you're selling your home, you should think about the things you look for when you're buying. Maximize on your home's sellable features and put a little effort into making your residence clean, approachable and comforting.
