You can’t help but wonder at times:
“How do sellers convince people to pay those massive amounts of money for this property? Is it really worth it?”
In most cases, yes, they are worth it, but it’s not rare that the property is sold for far more than its real worth thanks to some simple tricks used by sales professionals.
And one of the more popular of those tricks is called staging.
When done properly, home staging can leave a lasting impression that will give the home buyers the confidence to pay a few extra bucks for your property.
If you haven’t got a clue how to stage your home, but you want to sell as billionaires do, no worries, we got you covered.
Following are a few simple staging tricks that will bring you to the top of the game on your next listing presentation.
Highlight The Best Features
You know your house the best and what it has to offer to future buyers.
- What would you say is the best part of it?
- What elements do you think would wow the potential buyers?
When you get the answer to those questions, that unique part or feature is exactly what you need to highlight and make it stand out from the rest.
Whether it is:
- An expensive collection piece
- Built-in bar stools
- A lavish chandelier
- A whole room
Make sure to give this feature or element the spotlight so it can sell the house for you.
Add Different Textures
If you want to add luxury to your space, a great way to achieve that richness would be to add a variety of textures spread across the whole room.
One of the easiest ways to do this is by adding texture to something you can find in all rooms: the walls.
Wallpapers with elegant, lined shapes are ideal to add warmth to a room and give it the richness you want to achieve with the textures.
To make the space look even more elegant and luxurious, you can pick some soft-hued tones with distinct patterns.
Strong colors are also a great option, but a risky one as well since they are more difficult to combine and there is nothing to hide behind if you mess up.
Low Profile Furniture
High ceilings are the epitome of luxury.
They open up the space to make it look more grandiose and give you the wall space you can use to highlight your art pieces or hang your favorite chandelier to make it the centerpiece of the room.
However, you rooms may not be constructed with a high ceiling.
This means what you have to find alternative ways to get this feature and one of the best ways is by placing low-profile furniture.
Low profile furniture makes the ceiling look even higher, giving the room that extra bit of elegance and spaciousness.
A Corner Seat
If your space allows you to fit a corner seat, especially in the bedroom, don’t hesitate to do it.
Whether it’s a round one or a square-shaped corner seat, it seems like this feature is always a major hit with buyers.
To bring your “corner seat game” to the next level, find some covers or a blanket that matches the rest of the interior in the room and place it on the corner seat.
It’s worth searching for it and putting in some extra effort into finding the perfect corner seat for your bedroom.
Trust me, these small details add the perfect finishing touch to every room.
Bring In The Light
Lighting is an essential part of a well-staged room. It does not only give the space a homey feeling but also makes it look more elegant at the same time.
And what is a better source of lighting than natural lighting?
Floor to ceiling windows are the perfect way to bring light into the room, expose the best features of the rooms and if the location allows it, give future hosts the best scenic views of the city’s sunset.
Besides giving the best views and making the room seem warmer, floor to ceiling windows make the ceiling look even higher, which is a highly sought-after luxury feature.
Although you probably haven’t thought about placing over-sized mirrors much, the effects they achieve are stunning.
When you place mirrors in your bedroom, especially across windows, they will create an illusion of a wider space at the same time bringing even more light into the room thanks to the reflection of light.
Needless to say, bigger spaces and more lighting means more willingness for buyers to pay extra.
Add A Few Elements That Appear To Be ‘Luxury’
This one may seem like an obvious part of the list, but you would be surprised to know how many people don’t think about adding a few luxury elements here and there.
It doesn’t have to be a marble counter in the bathroom or a marble counter-top in the kitchen.
It can be as simple as:
- A few branded shampoos or soaps
- Designer towels
- Old book collections
These kinds of things are the perfect luxury additions serious home-buyers that intend on paying more will notice when they explore the property.
