Staging your Vero Beach home for sale can pay off big. On average, redecorating and remodeling a home can bring three times the return on investment at closing.
Staging Your Vero Beach Home Integral to Selling
Staging your Vero Beach home is a science more than an art, and has become an integral part of selling homes. Unlike interior design, staging is done not to suit the current homeowners' tastes, but to make the home appealing to a wide range of prospective buyers.
Bringing out the positive features of the property and improving its show quality should be the lone goal when staging your Vero Beach home. You want to show the buyer the potential the home has for them.
Three Tips For Staging Your Vero Beach Home to Sell
1. Update carpets, wall paint and countertops.
Remodeling is costly, but replacing the carpets, putting on a fresh coat of paint and upgrading the countertops can really make a difference in selling a home. Carpet should be low-profile, sleek and don't take over the space; light, neutral paint colors; and light-colored quartzite or Carerra marble countertops that are more durable and dense than dark granite countertops.
Today's buyers don't generally want fixer-uppers, they want move-in ready.
2. Declutter. Less is more.
Consider using a few focal point pieces to bring buyers' eyes to the space, but not detract from it. In particular, buyers pay close attention to the kitchen and master suite, which are often cluttered with nick-knacks. Declutter the kitchen and create a spa-like atmosphere in the master bedroom and bathroom. That means: removing unused appliances from kitchen countertops, getting rid of decorative pillows from the bed and putting clean white towels in the bathroom.
3. Homes need a lived-in look.
Vacant homes often take longer to sell because buyers think the homeowner is desperate to sell.
Getting a so-called "home manager" to live on the property to give it a lived-in look can help reduce the chance of getting low-ball offers. Even when staging your Vero Beach home, the changes should feel organic. Homes shouldn't have that staged look. They should look like someone lives there.
