It’s spring and typically that means it’s home buying and selling season, right? It’s the prime time. Check out these 5 Home Staging Tips that you can use and how CORT Furniture Rental can assist you!
Of course, leave it to my husband and I that each time we moved and sold a home it was always in the fall and winter. We should have waited though until spring.
Spring is when everything is blooming, beautiful, and newness is all over! I have a secret obsession…I look at houses for sale online almost every day.
Yep. All the time!
Why? I love home decorating, LOVE it. I also like to see what’s out there, maybe I’ll want to move but really I love to look at beautiful homes. I can almost immediately tell just by the pictures if one will sell quickly or not, it all comes down to one thing…staging.
How well does the home show for buyers?
Did you know that if you are in the middle of moving and need fresh and beautiful furniture for home staging that you could rent your furniture? That’s right, RENT! CORT Furniture Rental offers affordable furniture that you can rent to show your home. It’s convenient and affordable. They also have move-in ready options if you need it for your current residence!
I am telling you it works! My sister moved about a year or so ago. Her house literally was on the market for MONTHS. She had already moved so it was basically vacant and had no furniture. It didn’t really show character because it wasn’t staged. She ended up renting the furniture to stage her home. Guess what?
It sold in less than a week!
Six months the home set on the market as a shell with no character, a few furniture pieces and instant character…SOLD!
Today, I wanted to share 5 Home Staging Tips that you could do to sell your home.
1. Less is More –
Get rid of the clutter! It may feel barren to you, but buyers want to see your counter tops, floors, and more!
2. Fresh Paint –
When you move furniture out it can often show where it has rubbed on the wall or paint is missing. Get a little quart of touch up paint and get those walls touched up. Fresh paint goes a long way.
3. Don’t forget the Bathroom & Kitchen –
Remember the most important rooms are typically the bathroom and kitchen, be sure it is functional and welcoming. It’s always nice to add fresh flowers, a plate of cookies, and even update your furniture with CORT Furniture Rental.
4. Simple Bedrooms –
Don’t overdue the bedroom, not everyone is going to be in love with the flower pattern that you may be in love with. Keep it simple, neutral colors, nothing too busy. A nice bed and bedside table along with accessories is all you need. The goal is to show lots of space.
5. Inviting Living Space –
The living room is going to be the main sanctuary of the home, remove the clutter. Add a nice couch from CORT Furniture Rental if you need it and end tables. Add good lighting and be sure to keep the lights on when buyers are on their way!
These tips are simple and a great way to get buyers interested in your home. What tips do you have? Have you tried CORT Furniture Rental before? In what ways has rental furniture helped you transition from one home to another?
