Never neglect the property exterior when staging a home. This is the first thing that prospective investors will see upon pulling up. It is also the first place where you should start clearing away clutter and depersonalizing the abode. Once you have a clear area to start with, add in a few potted plants and a decorative bench for resting. As in the home, you want to avoid adding in so many elements that the space starts to take on a decidedly small look.
When homes have balconies or terraces, these should be staged as well. When appropriate, set up a small table to exhibit the possibilities of outdoor dining and relaxation. Add potted plants or set up a few outside LED lights to really make the building look phenomenal as the sun sets. LED lights are temporary, inexpensive and easy to install. More importantly, they can really add a new dimension to any outdoor lighting plan that is currently in place.
If achieving the right balance between a properly staged home and one that feels over-cluttered is too taxing, you can always hire a property styling service to handle this task for you. The professionals who provide this assistance know how to capture the attention of potential investors and retain it. Best of all, they can help you style your entire home on an entirely reasonable budget.
