Keep the Warmth Inside When Staging Your Home to Sell

When you decide to sell your home, don't feel like you have to completely empty it out and make it devoid of any human existence! Maintaining the warmth and livability of your home can help welcome buyers in and invite them to write an offer.

When you are selling your home, you want to make it as attractive to as many buyers as possible. You may decide to incorporate some staging. But that doesn’t mean you remove all aspects of yourself in an effort to make your residence look like a model home. In fact, it may work against you.

I do believe you should remove as much clutter as possible and make sure the decor is pleasing and does not take away from the beauty of the home and its location nor distract the buyer. The goal, after all, is to help the buyer see all the best aspects of the home and picture themselves living there. That leaves a lot of room for aspects of the homeowner and the livability of the home to remain and be highlighted.

For instance, in a living room, you can still use your favorite colors, decorate with a favorite theme and perhaps use some favorite pieces of decor. It’s all about moderation! You don’t want a buyer to walk into a stark and empty room and feel cold and unwelcome.

I would suggest to try and keep a theme throughout the home if you wish to keep your own decor. Perhaps implement a unifying color palette throughout, utilize approximately the same amount of decor in each of the major rooms, etc. This will appeal the most to a buyer’s senses and help them feel relaxed as they tour your home.
