5 Things to Remember for Summer Staging 2017


Summer is just around the corner. If you are planning to sell your home, here are 5 things to remember for summer staging that could help entice potential home buyers.

  1. Pressure Washing – The outside of your home is the first thing potential buyers will see. Make sure it is clean and free from damage or wear. Pressure washing can also wipe away grime that could cover potential problem areas you need to address.
  2. Windows – Have a professional inspect your windows and check for leaks or water damage. Make sure that windows are properly sealed and free from damage. Well-kept windows can help keep utility expenses down and add value to the home.
  3. Lawn Care – Make sure the lawn is well cared for and landscaping makes sense. If you have a sprinkler system, make sure it is working properly and is set to water at regular intervals. If you have a landscaping service maintain your lawn, make sure they have a set routine.
  4. Home Security – Whether your home is vacant part- or full-time, summer is a perfect time to invest in a home security system. Not only will that deter possible crime, but it will also increase the value and appeal of your home to potential homebuyers.
  5. Temperature – One of the first impressions people get when they walk into your home is how it feels – i.e. the temperature. Make sure your home feels comfortable, that air filters are clean, and that internal and external AC components are well maintained.

By following these 5 things to remember for summer staging, you are well on your way to making sure the furniture and decor you choose will only compliment all your home has to offer. For more tips and ideas, visit our blog or call Virtually Staging Properties at 877.949.9797.
