We know you’ve heard it before, and you’ll likely hear it again: One of the most important things you can do when selling your home is stage it to sell.
Staging Your Outdoor Living Space
After you’ve deep cleaned, decluttered and styled the focal points of your home, you may think you’re all done, but are you? Don’t forget to check the backyard. One of the most overlooked areas in the staging process is your outdoor living space.
Outdoor living spaces are becoming a key feature to homebuyers, and a wonderful way to increase the value of your home. Adding some inside comforts to the outside will create an inviting area, and make it feel like you’ve expanded your home’s square footage.
Staging the inside and outside of your home will help you sell your home quickly and at the right price. Here are some outdoor staging tips that will have homebuyers planning their next backyard barbecue.
Add Outdoor Furniture
Placing lounge chairs or a nice patio set in your outside space will produce a charming atmosphere that will leave a lasting impression.
If you have features such as an outdoor fireplace or fire pit, you can show them off by building a cozy fire during an open house. If you’re not sure about open flames and strangers, you can add simple lighting to highlight the amenities.
Depending on the time of year, make sure your flower beds are tidy, and if possible, plant some seasonal flowers. If you have pets, make sure the yard is free of waste.
Showcase the Kitchen
People love to grill, and sometimes do it no matter the weather. If you have an outdoor kitchen, or even just a grill, make sure it’s clean and presentable. You can add a chopping station next to an ordinary grill and give the feel of a complete outdoor kitchen.
Adding small touches such as flower-filled vases or candles can create a comfortable vibe. You don’t have to go overboard to make it appealing.
