Staging Tips for a Spring Listing
Posted on May 8, 2013
Spring time is a great time to list your gulf coast home for sale. With the days getting longer and the temperatures rising, spring increases the appeal of your home!
A freshly manicured lawn and a few flowers in the yard, or potted at the front door, increase the curb appeal. This curb appeal is the first impression for potential buyers and may be the deciding factor on whether they choose to view the inside of your home or a different home. The first impression gives the potential buyer a quick idea of how the home is maintained or the amount of maintenance that may be needed.
Excessive furniture and d├ęcor should be removed to maximize the open space and the size of the home. Although an open floor plan is not always in demand, buyers instinctively compare square footage and want assurance that their family will fit comfortably. Remember that curtains and blinds should always be open. The natural sunlight enhances the colors in your home and adds depth to each room.
Living in the Florida Panhandle gives homeowners an advantage as their home can be purchased for a primary residence, a secondary residence or may show rental potential to an investor. With these simple staging tips, and maybe a floral arrangement in your entry, your home is sure to attract buyers of all types!
