Six home staging DON’TS!

 When you are staging your home for a viewing there are some things you just don’t do!

  • DON’T let your pets mingle with the viewers – You may be proud of your lovely little pup, but there is every chance that the buyer will not like dogs. They distract from the house viewing and they don’t smell great either!
  • DON’T answer the door in your slippers – You are a representation of your home. Make an effort to look nice without going over-the-top.
  • DON’T leave unfinished DIY jobs for the potential buyer – Not only does this mean they will have work to contend with upon purchasing the house, but it gives the impression that your property is in bad condition.
  • DON’T leave all of your personal items on show – You may wish to display your niece’s wedding photographs, your child’s baby photos and all the sports awards you have won. However, they stop the viewer from connecting with your property! They need to be out of sight. Use storage units until you move if you have too many items to hide. You can keep your personal items here rather than having them hinder your chances of a sale.
  • DON’T go overboard with smells – Creating a welcoming atmosphere with smell is recommended, but only subtly! Don’t make your house smell like a perfume store or a cherry orchard.
  • DON’T leave things lying around – From your laundry to the phone bill; don’t leave odd bits and pieces lying around the home.

Great tips for creating the right atmosphere to sell your home

Creating the right atmosphere is a must when trying to sell your home! You want the viewers to feel relaxed and at ease, so they feel comfortable enough to take their time browsing your property. It is all about creating that ambience that makes people think ‘I could see myself living here’. Here are two top tips for achieving that feel…

A great way of creating a homely and welcoming vibe is through the use of scented candles. As mentioned above, don’t go overboard. A few carefully placed candles achieve the perfect vibe. Or, you could purchase fragrance sachets. The key is to be subtle with your fragrance selection. You don’t want your viewers to start coughing the moment they walk through your front door.

Another tried and tested way to put someone in the mood for buying is with music. Music helps to put people at ease and it can also make an emotional connection with the viewers. Don’t just play any old song! It must fit in with the style of your home and the individuals that are viewing it. Play the music at a low volume and ensure it is down-tempo. Don’t go for anything too risqué! Keep your selection neutral.
