Central Florida Homes: Our Guide to Successful Springtime Staging

Fri, Apr 01, 2016 at 9:21AM

Are you selling your Central Florida this spring? You may have been told that spring is a hard time to sell—but while competition may be high, it’s no match for careful staging and other selling strategies! In fact, with the right planning ahead of time, your springtime sale has the potential to be easy and enjoyable.

In today’s blog, we will be sharing a few simple staging tips to employ this spring.

Introduce springtime colors

While the wintertime may have called for rich reds, browns and grays, now is the time to switch up your color palette and bring in those bright spring colors. You don’t need to invest time into a large-scale paint job to do this—you can add pastel blues, greens and yellows as subtle accents like pillows, vases and other pieces.

Keep potential buyers comfortable

One of the most important things to consider while staging (and then showing) your home is, of course, the comfort of your potential buyers. Have cold drinks ready during any showing, especially on a warm spring day. And of course, be sure that your air conditioning is working well—while some breezier days may call for open windows, most during the spring and early summer will be warm enough to warrant AC action indoors.
This season, treat your guests to cool air and comfort when they step into your home—they’ll appreciate it!

Play up the pool

Do you have a pool in your backyard? You’re in luck—that might just be one of the most attractive features of your home to potential buyers. Be sure that your pool is looking its best by cleaning it regularly and giving it one last skim before potential buyers stop by. Clean the area around it to make the view outdoors as pleasing as possible.

Remember, potential buyers want to envision themselves in your home—and giving them a beautiful pool and outdoor space to look at is a great way to accomplish that.

Beautify your space with fresh flowers

Looking for even more ways to bring the feeling of spring into your home? Put out a vase of fresh flowers for potential buyers to enjoy as they walk through your home. They won’t just make your space look more beautiful—they will add to a fresh, clean ambiance that buyers will love.

Revisit your home’s exterior for last-minute fixes

Finally, head outdoors and revisit your home’s exterior to make any potential last-minute fixes. Are their branches on the driveway, for example, or other debris that could get in the way of potential buyers as they arrive at your home? Spring showers and storms make seeds, branches and other litter more likely—but by clearing them away, you can make your home more welcoming to buyers.

As you can see, staging your home during the spring is all about accentuating the best parts of your home, both inside and out. Please get in touch with us today if we can help you at any point in the selling process!
