Home Staging Tips That Apply to Every Room

5 Things That Turn Off Home Buyers

When buyers are house hunting, they are looking for a home in which they will be proud to invest their money. With it being such a big purchase and the market full of possibilities, it’s easy for them to move on to the next home if they turned off by the first impression of a listing. While there are numerous reasons buyers can be turned off by a property, there are five common things that have buyers saying “next.” In this video, Megan reveals what they are and how you can avoid them in your home.

Home Staging Webinar: Colors and How to Use Them

Color has a strong impact on psychology, which makes it a great tool to use in home staging. You can make a home feel more open, welcoming, and appealing based on the colors that you choose. Certain colors make people feel different things, so knowing which ones will appeal to the most buyers and make them feel more relaxed is a great trick to use to make your home stand out from the rest and have a positive emotional impact on buyers. In this video, Megan talks about the best colors to use for home staging and how to use them.

Home Staging Webinar: Awkward Spaces

Most homes have a least one awkward feature. When it comes time to sell, it can be challenging to figure out how to present that feature in a way that will appeal to buyers rather than turn them off. If left untouched or staged ineffectively, they can have a negative impact on buyers. However, when staged right, they can appear as a charming feature or go completely unnoticed altogether. In this video, Megan shows you how to stage awkward spaces so they won’t hinder the sale of your home.

Decorating with Trays

Trays are great decorating and staging elements that are both stylish and functional. You can gather smaller items on them, such as toiletries in a bathroom, to make a surface look less cluttered or you can style with them larger items, such as on a coffee table, for a nice vignette. We love to use them in home staging to provide some character to each space. In this video, Megan shows you some ways to decorate with trays that are quick, easy, and chic.

How to Choose the Right Art for Home Staging

Did you know that the art in your home (or lack of it) has an effect on buyers, too? Art makes a home feel warmer and more inviting, but if it’s too personal or controversial, it can turn buyers off. Similarly, a lack of art or ill-placed art can make a home feel cold and unwelcoming. In this video, Megan shows you how to choose the right art for home staging and where to showcase it for the best impression while your home is on the market.
