Staging Your Home: The Entryway
Eight seconds. That’s all it takes for most buyers to form a first opinion of your house. It’s not long, so you need to make it count. Ideally, your home should impress and motivate a buyer to swiftly make an offer. Staging your home can help highlight your home’s best features, making it appeal to buyers’ senses and emotions. Following simple exterior and interior design ideas and home-improvement suggestions can maximize your home’s attractiveness and create a captivating first impression. Regardless of what the market is doing, staged homes will sell faster, and often for more money.
Your entryway is like the runway to your home, so we want to make it appealing to potential buyers. Here are a few tips for making your entryway more inviting:
•Eliminate cobwebs and clean doorway area, windows, and porchlight.
•Wash siding. Use a pressure washer, or a bucket of warm water with dish detergent and a soft brush. If pressure washing stucco, be careful not to damage the stucco.
•Patch and paint where needed, especially door and trim.
•Inspect appearance of interior window coverings as seen from the entry.
•Consider adding pots of flowering plants in the entryway.
