Staging your Oakville home is an important part of getting the best price in the shortest amount of time. Everybody has their ideas about what is important to do when staging a home. First of all staging actually begins with curb appeal. It is important to show that your house is well cared for from the moment the buyer steps out of the car. To achieve this make sure that all components of the exterior of your Oakville house are looking their best. So repair eaves troughs, repaint anything that is showing its age, pay attention to landscaping in all seasons and in the winter months add some decorative lighting to create a cozy feeling.
Inside your Oakville house begin to purge all items you do not need. To deal with these items you may want to donate, sell or pack up items that you want to keep but can be without until you move. It is important to have the minimum amount of furnishings to create space, but at the same time it is still important to look lived in. Next on the list would be to make sure the home is exceptionally clean-beyond just everyday cleaning. It is also important to bring in ample amounts of daylight, so make sure that all window treatments are open and that windows are clean. If you have a room that has too much daylight then the use of very sheer drapes can be useful.
Other things that are important are to make sure that colours in your Oakville home are neutral and that there is not major transitions from room to room. If you have major changes in room colours this can make the home appear smaller and for many people can represent too much work for when they move in.
Home buying is an emotional process and therefore it is important to appeal to the buyers senses. Make sure the home has a pleasant scent and remove any odors such as from pets, cooking etc. Playing soft background music can also add to a positive experience. Adding small touches like soft pillows, blankets placed across a cozy chair can also appeal to a buyer’s senses and make them feel like this feels like “home”.
