Staging Secrets of Model Homes: Revealed!

Staging Secrets of Model Homes: Revealed!

 

Staging can boost a sale price of a home by as much as 10 percent. The best staged homes strike the balance between lived-in and never-owned. How can you apply that science when staging your home? Look no further than model homes, which draw buyers by blending the form-follows-function principle with the preferences of today. Here are some tips:

-Remove anything from the room that doesn’t fit the intended purpose of the space, and vice versa.

-Delineate sections in a room with area rugs, and “float” furniture away from walls and on and around the space.

-Group solid furnishings, like sectionals or bookcases, with visually lighter pieces, like a glass side table or raised bench, to convey spaciousness over sparseness.

 

-Mix general and task lighting in rooms that see the most traffic. Install lighting between open-air shelving or underneath overhead cabinetry in the kitchen, and place a small lamp on a desk or workspace in a child’s bedroom.

-Accessorize sparingly. Display only a handful of books with like-colored bindings in bookcases or shelving units, add one (thriving!) house plant to a side table, or hang one statement piece of artwork (scaled appropriately) over a bed or fireplace.

Stage to the model home aesthetic with these tips and you’ll be well on your way to selling your home for more.

  1. It really helped when you said to have lamps on desks or any workplaces in the house. My wife and I want to start showing our house later this month and we’re excited to sell it quickly. I’ll have to find a good real estate agent that can assist us in showing our home.
