6 Spring Staging Tips That Could Sell Your Home

Welcome to my Sunday. I am taking the day off to rest up and rev up my batteries. So I will be talking to those of you who might be trying to sell your homes.

Springtime brings sunshine, showers -- and plenty of opportunities for home staging. Make the most of the season with these fresh updates that are sure to attract buyers.

Whip your yard into shape. When you're selling in the spring, you need to get your yard in shape as quickly as possible. Clear winter yard debris, and get frost resistant plants that will not be affected if a late cold spell hits. Or, invest in silk flowers for a touch of color that you do not have to worry about watering.

Do some spring cleaning. It is natural to want to spruce up your space in the spring, so scrub away! A sparkling home will impress buyers and make your home seem even more appealing.

Box up your winter wardrobe. Bulky winter clothes take up lots of space, so move them out as you de-clutter your closets. You will impress buyers with all that space.

Spruce up the entryway. If your welcome mat is covered with winter dirt, pick up a new one. A clean, pretty doorway will help set the tone for the entire showing.

Bring spring aromas indoors. Spring is not only a colorful season, but a fragrant one, too. Bring the aroma indoors. Scents have a profound effect on mood, so infusing scent into your decor with diffusers, candles, fresh cut plants/flowers, or incense can change the overall feeling of a space.

Bring out the bright colors. Tuck away the heavy, winter flannel comforter and pull out crisp linens with coverlets for color. Bring in the spring with floral designed spreads or colorful solids. Do not forget accent pillows for added style and comfort.

Here is wishing you luck with the sale of your home. I hope the above ideas help you on your way.

Wishing you health, hope and happiness.
