When it comes to selling a home, presentation is key. A well-staged home highlights the best features while leaving plenty of room for imagination in the minds of home buyers. Here are a few tried and true home staging tips to help your home steal the show and bring in the best offers.

Make an Exquisite Entrance

It's hard not to judge a book by its cover, and the outside of your home can make or break a buyer's interest. Make sure the lawn is kempt and walkways clear of leaves and debris. Surfaces should be clean and look like new. Trim hedges and tree branches. Add colorful flowers and/or subtle outdoor lighting to drive home the inviting feel.

Prioritize the Important Areas

You don't need to spruce up every nook and cranny of your home. Focus on the heaviest hitters - the kitchen, living room, and master bedroom - first. If a buyer is on the fence about purchasing, a fancy guest bedroom won't make a difference, but a dazzling kitchen might.

Add a Touch of Nature

Nothing breathes life into a home like a few eye-catching plants. Whether it's a large floor plant or a few small flower pots, it's important to give each plant plenty of space to stand out and accentuate the area. For example, a vase of vibrant lilies can liven up a dining room, while a tall snake plant can add charm to a living room. If you're short on time, faux plants can do the trick as well.

Make It Neat and Neutral

Rearrange items to maximize walking space. Each piece of furniture should add charm or function to the room. Stick to subtle colors and stow away personal items such as photos, ornaments, posters, and collectibles. While it can be tempting to get creative, try to keep the tone as neutral as possible. The goal is to highlight the potential of each area and leave the rest to the buyer's imagination.

Wood Is Good

Quality hardwood floors are a huge selling point. Yet, many sellers make the mistake of burying them under carpets and rugs. Even if your hardwood floors have seen better days, it's worth it to fix them up and show them off.

Let in the Light

Without proper lighting, all of your cleaning, repairing, and redesigning will be for naught. Part the curtains and raise the blinds to let daylight highlight all your home has to offer. If it's still too dark, consider swapping your window treatments for something lighter and airier, or simply remove them. In addition to daylight, you'll want to turn on overhead, floor, and table lighting when visitors arrive. 

These are just a few tips to help you make a great impression on prospective buyers. Of course, you can modify these tips depending on the size and layout of your home.
