Did you know that taste of your food can be altered by the shape and materials of your spoon, the music being played in the restaurant, the smells around you, even the light levels? Selling a home works much the same way – you’ll want to go beyond the visual to get the right results! Even worse, using the wrong scents and lighting for your home can scare away potential buyers. Here were going to talk about how home staging should go beyond the visual, going that extra mile, creating that ambience that sells homes.
Put People at Ease in Your Home
Let’s say it’s Christmastime and you’re trying to sell your home, what would you do? You may have some holiday wreathes up, maybe even a tree. But go beyond what you would normally try and stage your home with. What do you think about when you think of Christmas?
Cookies? Gingerbread? Warm lighting? Christmas music? It’s all about creating that complete experience that people can enjoy. You want people to be in your home, thinking of all the great times they’re going to have while in there, thinking of all their stuff in your house.
Simplify the Experience throughout the Home
You don’t want it to be too busy (cinnamon buns in the kitchen, roses and chocolate in the bedroom), you’re going to want to try and make it simple, a theme that’s followed throughout the house. You shouldn’t have music blasting throughout every room, a different tune running in every hallway. You want to have that cohesive bond that says “This is what this house is all about.”
But how do you do that? If you knew how to make your luxury Oakville real estate pop out in the minds of buyers, you may have already sold the house by now…
You’re going to want to find a home staging expert that’s isn’t just going to toss up some drapes, a vase and a throw on your things. You need someone that knows how to play to sight, sound, touch and smell for buyers to get interested in your home. We’ll be able to help you figure out which one will work best for you, so you won’t have to do this step on your own.
Consistency Is Key
When it comes to creating an aspirational vision for your home, you’re going to need to make sure it’s as consistent as possible. You don’t want it to look like a dozen different people live here (or worse, a schizophrenic housewife with a penchant for clown sculptures). After all, it’s all about what they want, what they’re looking for.
