Staging Tips for Spring!

Flowers are beginning to bloom, birds are chirping…and we’re ready to help you take flight!

Here are some staging tips to help you get your home ready for the spring real estate rush.

Clean up time!

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year—spring cleaning time! Start the season (and your home selling) off on the right foot by taking some time to clean up your home. You’ll be amazed by what a little dusting and polishing can accomplish.

Whip your yard in shape!

You don’t want to scare potential buyers away with a wasteland of broken branches and frost-bitten plants. Make your home a place that people are excited about by clearing away winter debris, investing in plants that are resistant to cold spells, and incorporate low-maintenance flowers that add a pop of color without demanding constant attention.

Spring Cleaning

Say goodbye to winter!

It’s time to box up your winter wear. Nothing says neglected like holiday decorations that are still scattered around your home in May. Grab some boxes and put away your ugly Christmas sweaters until another season!

Enhance you curb appeal!

Spruce up your entry way with a fresh, clean entry mat that welcomes potential buyers. Keep the entry to your home bright and inviting with good lighting and a fresh coat of paint on the door. For inspiration, be sure to check out our “First Impressions” article from NEST Magazine that takes a look at how homeowners are achieving great curb appeal.

Enlist the power of the senses.

Pick your favorite flower, candle, or incense and give your home a sensory tune-up! If the weather is right, open the windows to let some fresh air in and the stuffy winter air out.

Bring the spring indoors!

Bring the bright, colorful hues of spring into your home with simple items such as throw pillows, blankets, and accent pieces. Put away the dark, heavy blankets that you’ve been nestled in all winter and bring out the flower vases! For more info on the look below, check out our “Beachy Bliss” blog!
