3 Staging Tips for Selling Your House, Red Wing, Minnesota

Selling your house is a long and complex process which requires the experience of a seasoned professional. When you’ve hired the team at Lawrence Realty to list your home in Red Wing and the surrounding areas, they will recommend that you stage it before placing your property for sale. When done right, staging shows off the best aspects of your home while helping buyers make an emotional connection with the home.

Selling Your House? Use These Staging Tips

1. Purge, then Purge Again

The average homeowner benefits from purging one third of their belongings before they stage the home. Start doing this well before your list date so you have time to go through everything. Decide what to sell, what to donate, what to throw away, and what to put into a storage unit for later use. A de-cluttered home with an empty garage and only half-full closets looks larger and cleaner to buyers.

2. Show Purposeselling your house

Give each space of the home a purpose, which will show buyers what they can do with it. The spare room that you’ve used to gather junk should no longer be the spare room. Turn it into a bedroom, or transform the small loft into a home office with a desk and a lamp. You can even dress up unfinished and outdoor spaces. Add an area rug and some artwork to an unfinished basement to create a teen room, or add a bistro table with a couple chairs to the balcony for a perfect morning coffee spot.

3. Light It Up

Proper lighting adds warmth and cheer to a home. Swap out your lightbulbs for a higher wattage; aim for 100 watts in each 50 square feet of the home. Open the window coverings so the rooms are flooded with as much natural light as possible, and turn on every light in the home before each showing or open house. If there’s a fireplace in the home, turn it on for some ambiance and light.

Staging and selling your house is difficult to do on your own. It’s important as you start that you have the right local realtors on your team to use their connections and experience for your benefit. Contact Lawrence Realty at (651) 388-4745 to schedule a selling consultation with a real estate agent. They have worked in the area since 1948 and have all the tools you need to meet your real estate goals.
