Tips and Tricks to Staging your Home
for a South Florida Market

Looking to put your home on the market but want to make sure you get the most value for your property? Staging may be a way to get your home more noticed by the right buyers. The housing market in South Florida is continuing to evolve and improve. With an up to date modern look, you will be well on your way to a great sale. Here are some budget friendly ideas to set the stage for success for bringing your home to life.

The first thing you will want to do is get rid of anything that is causing clutter in your home. You do not want to keep adding new items without getting rid of old ones. You want to make sure that you do not have an access of furniture. The less furniture in a room the more open spaces you will be able to have making you home seem even larger. Another way to make your home seem larger is to paint it the same color as the adjacent room. This concise look will make both rooms feel like one large space.  To get a sophisticated look, paint the walls the same color as your drapery.

You want to transform your spaces with simplicity of the little things. Adding a chic armchair to your bedroom or finding that perfect painting for your hallway can truly bring out the best of any space. Hanging your art creatively will make it stand out as well as help show off your space. You could even turn your basement into a yoga studio just by draping the walls with fabric, laying inexpensive rubber padding to your floors and placing a few cushy pillows everywhere. Always welcome future buyers into your home with an inviting porch. Purchase a clean doormat with potted plants and if room allows, porch furniture.

With staging, light is everything. The one thing that can turn your home into a warm and welcoming place is the lighting. You can do this by simply increasing the wattage in your lamps and light fixtures. Aim for the total of 100 watts for each 50 square feet. You will need three types of light for your home: ambient, tash and accent. The ambient will be the general lighting, the tash will be under-cabinet or reading lighting and accent will be for the table.

These staging tips and strategies will not only make your home look beautiful but will give you a great possibility of increasing the price!
