Spring is the busiest home selling season. But even a strong market won’t help bring in buyers if a home isn’t staged to reflect the season. Staging always matters. Aside from the usual things that should be done before buyers tour a house adding some seasonal spring elements to your staging is important when it comes to making a great first impression on potential buyers. Here are a few spring staging tips that expert home stagers swear by for attracting the right kind of attention from spring Leduc home buyers:
Get Rid Of Seasonal Décor
Some people like to leave their holiday decorations up long after the holidays. While the owners might think it makes the house look festive it really makes it look tired and outdated to buyers. Spring is all about starting over and new beginnings and buyers want to envision themselves living in a new home. They can’t do that if the Christmas tree is still standing the corner, or there’s still a holiday wreath on the door, or if the Christmas lights never got taken down. Make sure that the owners remove or put into storage all holiday decorations and items so that the home looks fresh and new.
Hire A Cleaning Service
A good basic cleaning might be fine at other times of the year, but potential buyers will except homes to sparkle from a fresh spring cleaning when they’re looking for a home in the spring. The best way to make sure the home is as clean as it can be is to hire a professional cleaning time. The cost is a great investment in attracting buyers. Professional cleaners will get all those hard to reach or easy to forget spots and the house will look and smell brand new again.
Put Out Fresh Flowers
Nothing invokes the spirit of the spring-like fresh seasonal flowers. Put vases of tulips, daisies or other spring flowers in each room. The buyers who tour the home will get a great impression of the home when they see bright and cheerful fresh flowers in every room. Houseplants are another great item to use when staging a Leduc home to sell in the spring. The house should be brimming with new life and greenery to really capture the feeling of the season.
Get The Windows Cleaned
Spring home buyers will respond better to homes that seem light and airy. To make sure that the home is flooded with sunlight and looks bright and open replace the blinds and drapes and get a professional window cleaning crew to come and clean the inside and outside windows. A professional window cleaner can clean skylights, picture windows, and other special windows so that the house gets as much natural sunlight as possible flowing in.
