We know how to enhance your lived-in listing!

Updated: Nov 26, 2023

There’s something we need to tell you…

We know how to enhance your lived-in listing! We know that staging isn't always possible when selling your home, so we wanted to give some helpful tips when you need a little DIY.

Are you looking to give your properties a fresh look that will wow your clients and potential buyers? We believe that small changes can impact how a space feels, and we're here to help you achieve that fresh and inviting atmosphere buyers are looking for. One of the easiest ways to freshen up a space is by utilizing plants. Plants add a pop of color and texture while breaking up the use of decor. They offer several benefits that can enhance the overall look and feel of a home, like boosting productivity, reducing stress levels, and improving air quality (and good quality faux plants can create the same feelings!). Adding some greenery can create a welcoming atmosphere that will appeal to anyone, even if they aren't aware of it. Second on our "Focus on the Fresh" list is adding clean neutral-toned linens. A calming color palette evokes a sense of relaxation in our over-stimulating world, creating an environment your buyers will want to stay in. And with the work-from-home trend becoming the new norm, people are looking for a space to keep a clear mind. Neutral colors can also make a space feel larger and more open. This is because they reflect light and create a sense of airiness that can make a room feel more spacious. That's why we like to focus on the fresh!

When it comes to selling your client's listing, it's important to ensure that potential buyers can see themselves living in the space. One of the most effective ways to do this is by giving each room in your home a clear and defined purpose. By assigning a specific function to each room, you can help potential buyers envision themselves living in the space and get a better sense of how they would utilize the home. This also helps to create a cohesive and organized feel throughout, which can be very attractive to buyers. It's a good idea to ensure that each room serves a different purpose, if possible. For example, a spare bedroom could be staged as a home office, while a large living room could be staged as a cozy entertainment space. By doing this, you can showcase the versatility of the home and demonstrate how it can accommodate a variety of lifestyles.

When prepping your listing for photos or a tour, one of the most important things to include is extra lighting. Lighting is essential because it will make your home appear more spacious, cleaner, newer, and overall more appealing. Having the right lighting can bring out the best features of a space and make it feel more open and modern. When your potential buyers walk into a well-lit listing, they are likely to feel more welcomed and comfortable, which can create a positive impression and increase the likelihood of a successful sale. Investing in quality lighting can be a smart move for anyone looking to enhance the overall ambiance and appeal of their home.
