Staging Your Elizabethtown KY Home Before the For Sale Sign Goes Up
“I need to find a REALTOR to sell my Elizabethtown Kentucky House”. Have you decided to sell? Before the real estate “for sale sign” goes up, make sure your home is dressed up and ready to go. You’ve heard of curb appeal, right? You’ll need to follow all the standard advice for making your home attractive including fresh paint, a tidy yard, and a welcoming look. But let’s take it a step further by staging your E-town home to make a fabulous first impression on home buyers.
First, rent a small storage unit for a few months. This investment will pay for itself because your house will show much better without all the clutter. We know your treasures are well-loved but for now, they need to go away. Take a look at some of the homes for sale online and notice how clear their shelves, coffee tables, end tables, mantles, and countertops are (also notice how unappealing cluttered homes look). This is what you want to achieve. Limit your knickknacks to those that set the mood. An elegant pillar candle on the dining room table for example.
Your storage unit will also be a good place to stash all those extra linens, sports equipment, clothes and shoes cluttering up your closets. Yes, home buyers almost always open your closets and take a good look. They’re not being nosy; they want to see if all their stuff will have plenty of room. Make your closets, cabinets, and other storage areas look as accommodating as possible.
Once the obvious clutter is removed, go into each room and define it. Is your living room doubling as a kid’s playroom? Move the dollhouse and board games out and let your living room serve as a living room.
Does your guest room do double or triple duty? Decide what you want it to be. Whether it serves as a guest room, an office, or an art studio choose one and let it shine for that purpose. Cramming too many functions into one small room also crams the room’s purpose in the house buyer’s eyes. While most people need guest rooms and offices, few need art studios so keep that in mind when defining the room.
Is your bathtub filled with bottles of shampoo, conditioner, wash cloths, shaving gel, and body wash? Yes, you need all those products, but for now you need to tone it down. No one wants to see the bathroom bogged down with personal hygiene items.
As you define each room, you will likely need to head back to the storage unit. Before going, look through your accessories. While you want to remove clutter, a few strategically placed accessories will serve you well. Look at some of the Elizabethtown KY real estate pictures on HardinHomes again with eye on what items they chose for each room. A vase with fresh flowers on the kitchen island? A bowl of fresh fruit? What catches your eye and brings a sense of the room’s purpose?
If you opt for fresh flowers or fruit as a design choice, make sure you have the commitment to keeping them looking their best. Your vase of dead flowers or bruised fruit will have the opposite effect.
Now that your Etown Kentucky home is staged, keeping it clean is a much easier task. Dusting around trinkets is much harder than wiping down a cleared surface. Keep your home spotless and let it shine. Hardin County KY real estate buyers will soon be coming!
