The spring sales season is starting to heat up and experts predict it’s going to be one of the best sales seasons of the last few years. Are you ready for the sales blitz? You should be working on getting your Edmonton real estate listings ready for spring with a spring staging makeover that will get buyers to place offers on the spot when they tour the home. Here are 4 can’t miss spring staging tips that will make buyers want to place offers:
Winter is almost over and spring is in the air. When you bring potential buyers to a home or host an open house in the spring the house should be flooded with as much natural light as possible. In the spring buyers respond to homes that feel open, fresh, and airy. To make that happen repaint with light neutral or white paint in the rooms. Change the drapes and replace them with crisp white curtains. Remove the blinds and get the windows professionally cleaned. Make the house sparkle with natural light to get the immediate attention of buyers.
Freshen With Flowers
Fresh flowers are a must for spring home tours and open houses. Pick fragrant seasonal fresh cut flowers and place them in every room. If you don’t want to spend a fortune at the florist at least keep a vase of fresh flowers in the entryway where potential buyers will be greeted with the light fragrance of fresh spring flowers and then place some house plants throughout the house to make it feel fresher. Fresh flowers are also a must to make bathrooms seem more spa-like and inviting.
Boost Curb Appeal
The way that the outside of the house looks is critically important. Buyers will decide in the first minute of seeing the house if they like it or don’t like it and the curb appeal has a lot to do with what they decide. Make sure that branches and brush are cleared out of the yard. Trim the hedges and overhanging trees. Sweep off the driveway and the walkways around the house. Add some solar lights so that the paths will be nice and bright at night or for evening showings. You can leave some white holiday lights up on the bushes or around the backyard because neutral white lights can be used all year. But pack all the other holiday decorations away.
Set The Stage For Outdoor Living
Buyers now expect a home to have some kind of outdoor living and spring is the perfect time to show off a home’s potential for summer get-togethers and evenings spent outside. Make sure that you highlight outdoor living space by dressing the patio, deck or yard with tables and chairs or other outdoor furniture. A chimney or fire pit is also something that buyers like to see.
