Staging your Westfield area home is all about putting the best foot forward for potential buyers. By highlighting its most desirable features, you can draw more interest to your home and leave a lasting impression that is sure to help you sell it more quickly. Here’s what you should keep in mind as you prepare for your next open house or viewing!

Staged homes sell faster and for more money than unstaged ones. So, use these simple staging strategies when selling your luxury NJ home.

Staging Strategies for Your Westfield Area Home

Help Them Visualize Your Home as Their Own

Search Westfield luxury homes for saleMake it easier for buyers to imagine themselves making your Westfield area house their home by removing personal memorabilia, knick-knacks, and photos. Instead, replace them with simple décor, such as paintings, nature images, and plants.

Think Sleek Instead of Comfy

Modern-day buyers are leaning toward modern, crisp, clean interiors over comfy, homey looks. When staging your Westfield area home, keep a minimalist mindset and incorporate bright colors with metal accents.

Deep Clean the Small Spaces

It's obvious to say you should clean your home before viewing, but don’t forget to cover your bases by deep cleaning the small spots. Take time to scrub porous areas like grout that may hold on to stains and baseboards where small pet hairs and dust love to cling.

Spruce Up Your Landscaping

Another important component of your staging strategies is your curb appeal. The first impression your Westfield area home gives to potential buyers is its exterior. Ensure you have a freshly mowed lawn, neat hedges and shrubbery, bright flowers, and a clean driveway.

Set the Mood

A home is so much more than just the way it looks. So you need to appeal to the other senses. Prior to having potential buyers over, set the mood by burning delicious-smelling candles and selecting an upbeat, happy soundtrack to play in the background. Avoid overpowering, flowering scents. Instead, opt for lighter fragrances to avoid irritating someone's allergies.

Good morning Scott. Before you invite all to come in get a second set of eyes to give their opinion. They will see things differently than you and likely are more aligned with the general public. Enjoy your day.
