Plan on selling your Bonita Springs condo? If so, you want to put your best foot forward, to create that perfect first impression. After all, homes are sold – or not sold – based on what the homeowner first thinks of them, and if your condo isn’t up to par, it may not even get a glance.
One way you can forge a strong impression for your condo is to stage it. Staging a home presents your condo in the best possible way to prospective buyers, giving them every opportunity to stop and take notice.
Here are three staging tips for when you go to sell your condo.
Make Your Home Spotless
The first step in staging a home is making it as clean as you possibly can.
From the floors to the ceilings, make sure every evidence of dirt, grime, scuffs, and trash is gone. Go as far as emptying every trash can you have. Shampoo your carpets. Wax your hardwood floors. Wash the walls if they have nicks and scuffs from children. Every detail needs to be in place, because buyers develop keen senses of sight whenever they step foot in a condo to check it out.
Add Colorful Accents
Another tip is to accentuate the strengths of your condo with carefully selected and placed accents.
An accent can be a sophisticated picture frame on the wall, or an accent rug in the foyer. You can fill your home with flowers, or place decorative table settings on your kitchen table. Think of the small touches you can place throughout your condo to make it feel more like a home, and create a personable impression.
Incorporate Storage into Your Home
Finally, people like to see plenty of storage.
Place shelving throughout the home, especially corner shelving. When you tackle your closets, leave them half-empty and neatly organized – it gives the illusion of more room. You can even have custom cabinetry put in that adds value to your home by giving the new owners more places to store their things.
Above all, look at your condo as if you were considering buying it. What would you change? What would you want to see?
