Don’t forget to Stage the Outdoor Space

Everyone loves the idea of outdoor living and when you are thinking of selling a house, showcasing the outdoor areas will help you attract more buyers and get the house sold.

Whether you have a small patio or a backyard oasis, it’s important that you show buyers how they can utilize that space. Help them see themselves entertaining, sipping a glass of iced tea on the porch or simply relaxing at the end of the day with a glass of wine in hand.

People are more likely to fall in love with the house if they can visualize themselves enjoying that space once they make that house their own. Nobody wants to think of the work they have to put in before they get to enjoy life in their new home. That’s why we recommend you invest some time, money and energy preparing the exterior of the house.

Here are 3 staging tips that will help you showcase the outdoor areas:

Clean-

Power wash all decks, porches and patios. Stain or paint if needed. Ensure all windows are cleaned. Make areas look bigger by eliminating all unnecessary items such as old flower pots, barbecues, planters, toys and excess furniture.

Landscaping-

The most cost effective way to spruce up your yard is by removing dead plants, trimming trees and bushes, shaping flower beds, adding colorful flowers and fresh mulch.

Pop of Color-

The first impression needs to be warm and inviting. To add a pop of color, try adding a wreath on the front door, a new doormat and a pot of flowers. Add a bistro table, a couple of chairs or in this case, a bench with colorful pillows to make the house irresistible to everyone that walks or drives by!

Making a good first impression outside will attract homebuyers to want to see what’s inside the home. Remember, staging is simply creating an inviting space to inspire buyers and generate more money in the sale of your house!
