Are you getting the most out of your square footage?

By
Home Stager with Essential Home Staging

Are you showcasing the full potential of the property?  This time of year is wonderful to stage outdoor vignettes at your listings.  Summer is approaching and potential buyers will be checking out the front porch and back yards of all the properties they tour to see if it will live up to their entertaining lifestyle.

 

Curb appeal starts right at the front entry.  Consider setting up a small bistro set, with a pitcher of lemonade and small bowl of lemons during your open house.  We all know the Sacramento Valley can reach extremely high temperatures during the Summer.  The thought of sitting on the front porch with a nice cool glass of lemonade sets the tone of a relaxing environment and defines the front porch as useable space, not just a place for potted plants.

 

By staging the back yard with patio sets and bright colored pillows, will often extend the buyers perception of square footage if done properly.  The photo below is a clear example of extending your vision past the window into a space that would go unrecognized without the ‘pop' of red outside.  This great room now extends past the sliding glass door and onto the patio.  The same comforts of inside the home should be felt outside as well!

Good point, Michelle.  Your picture really makes the point, as well. It's like borrowed landscape, where ou "borrow" the view of your neighbor's landscape to extend your own.
