Staging Tips for Your Broomfield Home

Are you gearing up to sell your Broomfield home? Before you welcome buyers into the house, you want to make sure that it looks its best–that means lots of staging! Even the smallest fixes and improvement can go a long in way in impressing buyers and getting you more serious offers (and maybe even a better closing price). From the exterior to the interior to the tiny details in between, these staging tips will help you take your Broomfield home to the next level!

The Exterior

Create Curb Appeal

The outside of your home is the first thing that buyers will see, and it will set the tone for the rest of the showing. You want to make sure that it's looking its best. 

Power wash the side of the house, patch up the painting, mow the lawn, and make your house the sharpest looking one on your street.

Make the Front Porch Welcoming

Nothing says, "Welcome Home!" to a potential buyer like a warm, inviting porch. Dust the cobwebs off of your outdoor furniture, replace your welcome mat, polish off the house numbers, and consider setting out a few potted plants to add a pop of color and decor to the space.

Spruce Up Outdoor Areas

Here in Broomfield, we get plenty of nice weather, and people in the community enjoy spending time outdoors. You want your home to show off its outdoor potential! If you have a back yard, consider adding a few things or staging the area to showcase the highlights.

Install a fire pit, set up a few chairs, roll out the grill, and help buyers envision all of the memories they can make in the space.

Cleaning & Repairs

Clear Out the Clutter

Clutter won't just make you feel stressed out, but it'll also leave a bad impression on the buyer. Since you probably already need to be packing things up, get a head start on the process before your showings! Move out any extra furniture, take down clunky decor, and open up some extra space in your rooms.

Finish Maintenance Projects

The last thing a buyer wants is to inherit a list of to-dos in their new home. If you've been putting off fixing that leaky faucet or patching up those shingles on the roof, make sure it's done before the buyer walks through the door. While you're at it, you might also think about adding a few value-boosting DIY projects to your list, like replacing outdated fixtures or painting the walls!

Clean, Clean & CLEAN!

One of the easiest and maybe most important things you can do before a showing is clean. Your staging cleaning process should be just as intense as your spring cleaning process, because, while you might not notice the smudges on the fridge or dust bunnies in the corner, buyers will. Get into every crack, crevice, and corner, and make your home shine. 

Interior Decor

Depersonalize Your Decor

Buyers want to be able to imagine themselves in your space, but if you have family pictures and personal decor all over the home, it's going to be tough for them to do that. Keep your decor minimal, and consider painting your walls a more neutral color, so that each space is a blank canvas for the buyer.

Create Balance with Furniture

Furniture can say a lot about a room. Too much furniture makes a room seem crowded, but too little can make a room feel empty and lonely. Couches facing each other feel conversational, a desk in the spare room conveys the potential of the flex space—consider the tone you want your furniture to set before you conduct your showings.

The Final Details

Increase Your Lighting

If the sun is shining, then you're in luck: natural lighting is not only a mood-booster, but will also make your space seem bigger. So throw open your curtains, and let in those rays! If the weather isn't cooperating, then consider using some warmer wattage lights or lamps, instead of harsh overhead lighting.

Bring the Outdoors In

Since your decor has to minimal and depersonalized, that limits your options a little. Luckily, your garden is full of potential! Bring in a few fresh flowers and set them in a vase, use potted plants to fill space in those empty corners, and decorate your mantle with some tiny succulents. Not only will plants and flowers add a pop of color, but it'll also bring some fresh scents.
