Avoid the #1 Mistake When Staging Your Home for Sale
This is the most common mistake that I see home owners make when they stage their homes for sale: forgetting the differences between interior design and home staging.
Interior design is all about you, how you like to live, how you like to express yourself through your style and how you want to design the space to tailor to your needs. You can do whatever you like. There are basically no rules. If you want to live with a lot of plants and make your room look like a jungle, that’s totally a-okay. But when it comes to showing the homes to the public, you can’t do that since potential buyers won’t be able to see how big the room is.
When it comes to home staging, it is all about the buyers. It doesn’t matter that you don’t like off-white paint colors, it is not for you. It doesn’t matter that you like to use your spare bedroom as a gym, it is now going to convert back to a bedroom, because that’s how buyers buy.
I’ve put together a few key differences as a reminder for you here.
By putting your potential buyers in mind, it will help you when you are staging your home for sale. A little extra effort into your home staging game plan, you have the potential to reach a greater audience, show well, and get offers.
