Home Selling Tips: A Properly Staged Kitchen Sells Homes Quicker

 

staging tips

Highlighting your home’s strong points (and downplaying the weak ones) to a potential buyer is important to making sure that it sells quickly. People shopping for a new home will be looking for particular things in every room, and it can be difficult to please everyone. But one room that can make or break a sale is the kitchen, the center and heart of everyone’s household. Having a warm, bright and inviting (oh, and somewhat modern) kitchen will speed up the sale of your home dramatically.

 

Here are some basic tips to stage your kitchen:

1.) Keep if functional

 People looking to buy a new home want to see a kitchen that is ready and waiting for their family, so you’ll want to make sure that everything functions as it should by keeping drawers workable and smooth, fixing those floor tiles, and so on. No one wants to fix a problem the day they move in.

2.) Focus on the details

Not everyone is going to be able to run out and buy brand new appliances, granite counter tops, etc, when they stage their house (that’s for the new house!) But what you can do is add a fresh coat of paint, some new hardware on the drawers and doors, and perhaps some new lighting fixtures. You’ll be surprised at how much the little things help to sell your house.

3.) Tidy Up

During the selling process you are going to want to keep your kitchen clean, uncluttered and move-in ready. Homebuyers are going to be looking for things that stick out to them, and too much stuff on the counter, an inordinate amount of magnets or pictures on the fridge, and old sink rags or sponges lying around won’t help your cause. The more organized the space is, the more potential buyers will see, and the quicker it’ll sell.
