The In’s and Out’s of Staging Your Cleveland Ohio Home

When selling your home in the Cleveland area, there are many items to check off of your to-do list. Now is the time to clean from top to bottom, work with your real estate agent to price the property well, do a furniture edit to avoid clutter and stage the property to allow homebuyers to visualize themselves living inside.

Staging your home is meant to prepare the Ohio property to appeal to the largest number of homebuyers— however, there is a chance buyers will react badly to your staging job. Take these do’s and don’ts into consideration when preparing your home for sale and remember, when in doubt ask BOLD Real Estate Consultants!

Don’t use old or damaged furniture
Imagine entering a home in Medina or Cuyahoga County and finding beat-up furniture inside. Your perception of the property would probably be compromised simply due to the old, ragged furniture. Put yourself in the homebuyer’s shoes and choose furniture that shows your space in the best possible light.

Don’t use distracting themes
One of the principles of staging your home is to stick to a neutral palette. Neutral colors allow a homebuyer to visualize their belongings and themselves living there. Do not use distracting themes, colors or decor— instead, put the emphasis on your home and your spaces, not your things.

Focus on your home
Keep this in mind as your walk through your home in Medina, Valley City, Columbia Station, North Royalton, Brunswick, Hinckley or Strongsville. You want the homebuyer to focus on the home itself, not get distracted by the wallpaper, the knick knacks on the shelves or the bright red color on the walls. Always edit before a buyer comes to view the home, meaning you remove anything that might feel overwhelming or take away from a space.

Keep it consistent
Think of your Cleveland area home as a story and every space in the home should be a part of the same story. If one space is out of date or in need of repair, that can reflect badly on the rest of the property. Keep it consistent, neutral and comfortable for the potential homebuyers.
