The Key Elements of Successful Home Staging in Edmonton

Staging your home for sale is an integral part of the selling process. Home staging in Edmonton doesn’t have to cost a lot of money! In fact, we do it for free here at Realty Unleashed! But we will talk about that later. By focusing on small, inexpensive changes, you can create a well-staged home that impresses possible buyers. Here are a few key ways to stage your house for sale on a minimal budget!

Depersonalize + declutter

A fundamental part of home staging in Edmonton, depersonalization is the process of removing items that are too personal for buyers. The goal is to create a blank canvas that allows buyers to imagine living in your home, and it’s challenging to do this with your family photos on the wall or wedding invitations on the fridge. The same practices apply to clutter: get rid of it and keep what is necessary. Less is more! Home stagers will help you narrow down which furniture and decor to keep and which you can put away for the listing period. You really only need the necessities when staging your home for sale, so don’t worry about over-decorating; keep it basic!

Stage your kitchen

Kitchens tend to be the place where everyone gathers the most. When buyers look at a home, they generally want to see a kitchen they can imagine cooking in and preparing meals for loved ones. It’s a special place in someone’s home! Deep clean the kitchen as buyers will open cupboards, look under the sink, and maybe even open the fridge. To make your space look inviting, you can place a few tasteful items on your counters, like cookbooks or a simple piece of art. Put a tea kettle on the stove and add some fresh flowers to a nice vase!

Curb appeal

The outside of your home is a good indicator of the inside of your home, meaning curb appeal matters. Buyers will sometimes drive past a property before they schedule an in-person showing, so you want the outside of your home to look its very best right from the time you post your listing! Although most people simply don’t have time to keep up with daily yard chores, try to maintain your curb appeal while your home is listed. Here are a few questions to start asking yourself when you’re thinking about the outside condition of your home with respect to buyers:

  • How does my roof look? Are the shingles intact?
  • Does my lawn need to be mowed?
  • Do my walks need to be shovelled?
  • Does my porch light work?
  • Should I re-paint my front door?
  • Are there overgrown plants or shrubs that take away from the attractiveness of my home?

Embrace minimalism

When it comes to home staging in Edmonton, you want to embrace a minimalist design. As we mentioned earlier, you can begin by decluttering, depersonalizing, and cleaning each room in your home. If you are using furniture you already have, opt for simple yet functional pieces, and avoid using anything with obnoxious or overly elaborate patterns or styles. Using natural textures like wood or linen adds both warmth and dimension to a room, perfect for minimalist design! Creating a clean, simple look will make the home more spacious and open, which is appealing for potential buyers.
