These low cost strategies to make your The Vistancia Communities Active-Adult and Master Planned Communities home more appealing are sure to have your potential buyers saying WOW! Plus these tips are quick and easy.

Home Staging Basics:

  • Remove all family photos to create space and cut down on clutter. Potential buyers will want to imagine their own things in your home and by eliminating personal mementos you give them the ability to place themselves into those spaces.
  • Create a welcoming smell in your home by using light scents to remove bad odors which may discourage potential buyers. Place candles around in strategic places like by the garbage in the kitchen, in bathrooms and entry ways. Lighting them before a showing can create an enticing environment when entering the home.
  • Make sure your windows are clean and functioning properly. Clean windows bring more light into your home and make smaller spaces look bigger.
  • Repair all broken items. Take the time to make the small repairs around your home that you have been lagging on. Look around your home and try to imagine it from the buyers perspective. Taking the time to repair holes in the wall, replace broken windows, put some WD-40 on squeaky doors and make any necessary general repairs.
  • Create more space in your house by either rearranging your furniture or moving to other rooms.
  • Keep your floors and walls sparkling clean by vacuuming carpets and hard wood floors, scrubbing and cleaning tiles and grout all over your house.
  • To eliminate lingering bad odors, empty your garbage daily.
  • Remove and store seasonal clothes from closets.
  • Rent a storage space. Remove all visible storage boxes from closets and garage.
